The Onion never lets me down: Teen Who Just Discovered Led Zeppelin Starting To Piss Off Friends: According to friends, Campa’s newfound love of the band has caused him to behave in a “dicklick” fashion. “Last Saturday night, a bunch of us were driving around cranking the new Slipknot when Mark popped the tape out and started messing with the radio,” said Rick Eglund, 17. “I was like, ‘Dude, what’s your problem?’ He said it was time for WLUP’s ‘Get The Led Out’ and that he never missed it. I told him he was gonna miss it that night. Then, he tried to stop me from putting the tape back into my own stereo. I had to pull over and force him to switch seats with Dan [Alberman].” “The stupid thing is, at the time, we were driving Mark home,” Eglund continued. “He has all their CDs, so he could’ve listened to Zep all night if he’d just waited five minutes. I guess he had to prove what a big fan he is.”
For those of us who live near the near-fallen motor city, the words green and Detroit don’t usually go together. This week’s “Detroit Metro Times” article, Down a green path, discusses a proposal for an alternative community called Adamah. “The project leans heavily on agriculture. Plans include greenhouses for tulips and vegetables, grazing land and a dairy, a tree farm and lumber mill, community gardens and a shrimp farm. The plans also include windmills to generate electricity, ivy-covered freeway buffers to help clean the air, a canal for both irrigation and recreation, even co-housing, which can include shared dining and common areas to provide a greater sense of community. It calls for creation of living and work spaces in such old industrial buildings as the former Packard auto plant.”
Almost everyone has heard the clip from Lou Gehrig’s farewell to baseball speech where he says, “today (today…today) I consider myself the luckiest (luckiest..luckiest) man on the face of this earth. Well check out the whole speech. It reads like a beautiful piece of American folk art.

With Jeremy into the Diamondbacks, I’m watching game 5 with great interest. He made it to the 5th inning before he had to go to sleep. It’s 11:04pm and there are 3 outs ’til the D-backs go to the world series. It sure sucks that kids can’t watch the end of these post season games. I plan to wake him in a few mintues if I’m sure the Diamondbacks are going to win. Over on the other channel, it’s a 0-0 game between the Yankees and Mariners. Did I ever say that I love baseball?
