Meet us Tues night: 7pm at Denver University David Amram and family on HST

Hi there.

For all you Denver people:  See you at the University of Denver Sturm Hall at 7pm.  There will be a lecture, music and the words of our beloved Dr. Hunter S. Thompson.  If you’ve never heard the music of David Amram, you are in for a treat.  See you there!


The peacocks were home briefly!  Now they’re gone again.  It’s driving me crazy.  There was a wild and thunderous rain storm today, so that probably kept them in a tree or under somebody’s patio roof.


As far as the Democratic assembly.  It was fun.  We all left feeling like champions. It made me think of the last page of "Hey Rube."  

"Politics is the Art of Controlling Your Environment"

That is one of the key things I learned in those years, and I learned it the hard way.  Anybody who thinks that "it doesn’t matter who’s President" has never been Drafted and sent off to die in a vicious, stupid War on the other side of the World — or been beaten and gassed by Police for trespassing on public property — or been hounded by the IRS for purely political reasons — or locked up in the Cook County Jail with a broken nose and no phone access and twelve perverts wanting to stomp your ass in the shower.  That is when it matters who is President or Governor or Police Chief.  That is when you will wish you had voted. 



 Hunter wrote that paragraph for the introduction to the 2nd letters book.  It was edited out, but I kept it pinned to my wall.  One day we decided to put it on a flyer and pass it around.  I included that page as an insert in the first Woody Creeker issue. 

At the democratic assembly, I voted for all the seats up for election (not senate yet, 2008 is when we will finally get rid of our dunce of a senator Wayne Allard who was named one of the worst senators by TIME mag. The horror the horror!).  I’m inspired by a woman running for attorney general of Colorado named Fern O’Brien.  She started this new career when she went to law school with 3 children at age 36!  So I voted for her and am paying attention to her campaign.  I’ll probably lend a hand.  She appears to be doing a fantastic job. More on that later.  I’m thinking about hosting a couple political training sessions at Owl Farm as the campaigns start.  We must take back congress this year and in 2008 or I get the sense that we will be screwed.  But, then again, Hunter has been saying that since before I was born.


As for Lisl Auman, our bright and Shining Star: She has a great apartment and just got a promotion at work.  She is tan rested and ready.  You go girl!!!


I’m sleepy, see you tomorrow at DU.

love, Anita Thompson
