12 Blotter 13 Straight Dope 14 News of the Weird

of Latinos here, illegal or legal, is just not high enough yet to be a threat at election time. Certainly much of the outcry against SB 1070 is hyperbolic, chiefly the complaint that it’s a “your papers please” law. The law as written explicitly states that a drivers license in most cases will be enough for law enforcement to presume someone is in the U.S. legally. But the law is onerous in that if a suspect doesn’t cough up some ID — even if they’re perfectly legal and just out for a walk and happened to leave it at home — they can be detained for a lengthy immigration check. I suspect in the worst case, law enforcement officers seeking to intimidate might use such a lengthy detention to break up families and send a message that certain people should just pack up and leave. For example, how many pre–teens carry ID? In any case, a potentially draconian law which depends on the good intentions of the police to keep it from becoming actually draconian is a bad law by definition. While most of my dispute with SB 1070 has to do with Fourth Amendment issues, the racial issue cannot be ignored. The law actually

requires a form of racial profiling from Arizona police, in that they are duty-bound to check the immigration status of anyone they suspect of being in the country illegally. And how else would police be expected to suspect someone of being an illegal immigrant, if not for their ethnicity? Their haircut? Their shoes? Their vehicle? The entire exercise devolves into absurdity very quickly. (And of course there’s the inevitable flip side: All those freckle-faced, fair-haired, paleskinned white people who will be pulled over and asked for ID so that police departments won’t be accused of racial profiling. If you’ve been to an airport lately you know what I’m talking about.) In these matters, context is everything. Sadly, one thing that is sorely missing today in American society and media is any real discussion of context. So here’s the context: SB 1070 is just one of several measures Arizona has passed this year which specifically target Latinos as an ethnic group. The others include: • Teachers with “heavy accents” are no longer allowed to teach English in Arizona public schools. (No word on whether those with Brooklyn or Southern accents can continue teaching.) • No more classes which “advocate ethnic solidarity” will be permitted in Arizona public schools. Those who would say SB 1070 and the above pair of measures are all just isolated examples sound similar to Jim Crow–era

largest hole in the ground. That’d be like admitting I can tell a great YouPorn clip from a so–so one just by looking at the thumbnails — who’d cop to that? Nevertheless, in order to at least sound somewhat authoritative, I’ll confess that I did stay in Arizona a couple times. I hauled drywall on a truck out to Sun City one summer (though I couldn’t figure out why those geezers would add bedrooms in communities where their kids can’t move back in with them), and later I earned a J.D. there (though I still dunno why I carried out such a fool’s errand as that.) I’ve been there. Long time, G.I.

So I do have a good sense of why even the Joad family rolled through without stopping. And the first thing we masses need to get about the drunken–redneck uncle of the states is that even though 25 percent of it lies (or, at least fibs & breaks treaties) within various Indian reservations, it is, clearly, the single biggest quasi–closeted klavern west of Hayden, Idaho. These crackers are in it for the long haul, like Eichmann’s kids and David Duke. Heck, back in ’87, car dealer–cum– impeached Governor Evan Mecham (aka “Mr. Pickaninny” — Google it) rescinded Klanizona’s MLK

This is how out of control the immigration issue is in America: The governor of Arizona is making an endorsement in the Georgia governor’s race.

Karen Handel, currently jockeying for position with John Oxendine at the top of the crowded Republican field, is touting her recent endorsement by Jan Brewer, the Arizona governor who signed the controversial SB 1070 anti–illegal immigration law. No one who has followed the issue is surprised by this. As far as I can tell, two other Republicans in the race, Nathan Deal and Savannah’s Eric Johnson, were actually the first to leap aboard the Arizona bandwagon before the ink was even dry on Brewer’s signature. This is meat–and–potatoes Republican politics and no doubt devastatingly effective, if the various polls showing broad approval for the Arizona measure are to be believed. Other Southern states, even ones with miniscule Latino populations, are jumping in on the immigrant–bashing act. The most notorious example is the recent ad by an Alabama gubernatorial candidate who insists “we speak English in Alabama” (prompting the inevitable sarcastic chorus of “Oh, really, when did you start doing that?”) Immigrant-bashing is effective because it’s easy. Scapegoating is always easy; that’s why people do it. Even if many Georgians are mistaken in thinking that all people of Latino heritage are illegal, regardless of how long they’ve lived here as citizens, there’s little downside to supporting such legislation simply because the number

There’s crazy, then there’s Arizona crazy There aren’t many things one really needs to know about California’s cranky, highpocketed, white–shoe–and–belt–wearing, prune–munching neighbor to the east. I know, I know, “need” is a strong word, as in, “your mother needs a hip replacement,” or “I’ll need another drink if I’m gonna have to carve the turkey.” But there are two things that people do need to understand. And mind you, I wouldn’t claim expertise on a state deservedly nicknamed for the world’s


make a right. If this is the best argument SB 1070 supporters can make, they will likely lose their upcoming defense against the recently–announced Department of Justice lawsuit. But I doubt that supporters of SB 1070, like Karen Handel, Eric Johnson and company, really care whether the law stands or not. To them, the point is to use the law to divide, to polarize, and to get votes. It’s cynical, it’s effective, and unfortunately it sows the seeds for future unrest to come. Too bad the late, great Hunter S. Thompson isn’t around to weigh in on the issue. He would have had some twisted fun with it. Below, in honor of what would have been the good gonzo doctor’s 73rd birthday on July 18, find the Thompsonesque musings of Lance Hendrickson.

holiday, and in 1990 these benighted bran–grazers rejected a ballot initiative to put it back. Whereupon, the NFL yanked the ’93 Super Bowl. Didn’t matter. Dollars (and national ridicule) be damned. They hate brownish people. Why they migrated from Pittsburgh and Schenectady to walker–through their last days smack–up against a failing country spilling–full of the very brownish people they detest, I’ll never fathom. If it weren’t for the second thing to know about that Fourth Reich, it’d merit no mention. The second thing, though, is what’s causing a ruckus. (Good Arizona word, that: “ruckus.”) For whatever reason, they’ve left off hooting at Hee–Haw reruns and ranting over at Luby’s Cafeteria about affirmative action and welfare queens and whatnot, and they’ve gone ahead and operationalized their long–conjured “final solution.” See, they’ve enacted a law (or, what passes for a “law,” in a state where 40,000 warrants now go unserved in one county because the Shurff ’s deploying his Deppitys on day–long McDonald’s kitchen stakeouts, hoping to scoop up Cheech Marin on the one day he didn’t bring his three–ring binder full of

identification documents with him). Reeee–publican Governor Jan Brewer (read: Leni Riefenstal sans the camera) signed Senate Bill 1070. It basically orders every publicly–employed fartknocker with a badge and a Glock 9 who squares up in front of anyone driving an ’88 Chevy Astro within six blocks of an El Pollo Loco to haul said “anyone” off to the pokey by the sombrero, unless said “anyone” produces, upon gunpoint–demand, a birth certificate better than Obama’s. That is to say — and let’s be clear — all the cops, jailminders, and notaries public in Klanizona must now hassle everybody who’s ever said “no se,” and give ‘em the Albert Louima treatment with a Maglite if they can’t cough up proof of a Flagstaff address or a 780 credit score right there on the roadside. It’s an embarrassment , this Jim Crow reprise — at least to everybody who didn’t vote for Orville Faubus, anyway. So, now, the Justice Department’s roused itself for the first time since Martha Stewart’s perp walk, and it’s filed suit to... er... stop it, somehow. Hallelujah. Go get ‘em, Mr. Attorney General. Be like Ike, and give those honkies a good tanning. Schnell. cs

news & opinion

apologists who said the same things about poll taxes and literacy tests 60 years ago. Taken individually, an argument could be made for each of those measures. Taken as a whole, the measures added up to a specific attempt to keep African Americans from voting. Clearly — and anyone who argues differently is either being disingenuous or is being paid to do so — Arizona’s recent laws are intended to do the same thing: target people of a particular ethnicity. Regardless of your stance on illegal immigration, on the Constitution, or on the Obama administration, this is morally wrong and therefore indefensible. I also grow weary of the juvenile red herring that SB 1070 is necessary because of the federal government’s inability to control illegal immigration. Not even a child would think this a convincing argument, though they may give it a shot in a desperate moment. The federal government is clearly not doing its job, but two wrongs never

JUL 14 - JUL 20, 2010 | WWW.CONNECTSAVANNAH.COM



Republicans and Democrats get ready to square off in the primary election July 20 by Patrick Rodgers | patrick@connectsavannah.com

The candidate signs and campaign commercials have been popping up more frequently over the past few weeks, which means it’s time for part one of this year’s political drama to unfold. Primary elections are Tuesday, July 20. While we aren’t endorsing anyone, we present this roundup of all the candidates in hopes that it helps you decide who to support when you make your voice heard at the polls. As of July 2, there had been over 1,200 early votes cast (668 Republican and 593 Democrat), but if you’re holding out for the big day. here’s some information to help you choose from among this year’s crowded field of candidates.

Governor There’s no shortage of people who want to take over for Sonny... Jeff Chapman (R) – As a free market loving State Senator repping the 3rd District, Chapman made a name for himself with a scathing editorial against the deal between the Jekyll Island Authority and Linger Longer. Nathan Deal (R) – Deal was added to the list of corrupt politicians by the group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington after he preserved a lucrative no–bid contract for his business that earned him more than $150,000 in state tax dollars. Karen Handel (R) – The former Secretary of State has spent a lot of time battling attacks from Deal for her al-

leged membership with the pro–gay Log Cabin Republicans several years ago. She’s passionate about illegal immigration. Receiving a late Sarah Palin endorsement would seem to be a huge bonus for her. Eric Johnson (R) – The hometown favorite wants to improve public safety and stop illegal immigrants from attending in–state colleges, but can he get past ethics charges stemming from his failure to disclose hundreds of thousands of dollars he made from state contracts with his firm? Ray McBerry (R) – McBerry is a Pro–Life Constitutionalist who supports the Second Amendment and touts his past as an educator on his website. What he doesn’t mention is that he resigned from a teaching job after an inappropriate relationship with a female high school student. John Oxendine (R) – Opponents of the former Insurance Commissioner call him “Georgia’s Blagojevich” and it’s been reported he’s accepted over $120,000 in illegal campaign contributions. Otis Putnam (R) – His website says “Regular Guy Runs for Governor.” Putnam has been an employee of Wal–Mart in Brunswick for the last 13 years; is a direct descendant of the Revolutionary War General Israel Putnam; and believes that we need to put prayer back in public schools. Thurbert Baker (D) – The Attorney General opposed Sonny’s plan to sue the federal government over Healthcare Reform and wants to use proceeds from electronic bingo to fund education initiatives. Roy Barnes (D) – If Roy’s name looks familiar it’s because he was Governor once already. He’s running TV ads saying that the state can’t recruit new jobs if everyone is laughing at us for being backwards. Um, thanks? Bill Bolton (D) – Bolton has run for Mayor of Marietta

twice as a Libertarian and this is his third run in the primary for Governor as a Dem. He’s pro–public transportation, wants to protect civil liberties and fight tax loopholes. Carl Camon (D) – The Mayor of Ray City, Camon shares something besides experience as a teacher with Republican Ray McBerry – allegations of misappropriate behavior with female students. Randal Mangham (D) – The State Representative is an attorney who last year was found liable for $625,000 in legal malpractice damages and was also found to owe $11,000 in back taxes on two homes he owns. Paperwork is not his strong point apparently. DuBose Porter (D) – This veteran state politician and newspaper man from Dublin started his campaign in tandem with his wife Carol, who is running for Lt. Governor. She’s doing better in the polls than he is, but he’s a staunch supporter of education. David Poythress (D) – This former General served as the Secretary of State and the Labor Commissioner in Georgia, and he pledges not to accept his salary as Governor until the state’s unemployment rate is below seven percent.

Secretary of State The job includes supervising elections and maintaining public records... Brian Kemp (R) – He’s the incumbent, nominated by Sonny to replace Handel, but he’s got some opposition from within his party to keep the job. Doug MacGinnitie (R) – Doug is running on a traditional conservative platform, and is particularly worried about the disenfranchisement of military members’ absentee ballots.


Attorney General The attorney and legal advisor for the state... Sam Olens (R) – The Atlanta–based attorney received the endorsement of Glenn Beck’s 9–12 Project network for his constitutionally conservative views. Preston W. Smith (R) – The former State Senator wants to overturn “Obama–Care” and enforce illegal immigration laws more strictly. Max Wood (R) – Wood supports Arizona’s immigration law, thinks

health care reform encroaches on civil liberties and wants to protect the Second Amendment. Ken Hodges (D) – The former Albany DA was sued last year over alleged misconduct in the handling of a questionable case against a man named Charles Rehberg. Rob Teilhet (D) – He has an impressive list of endorsements from political and community leaders around the state. We know because his campaign sends more press releases than any other candidate in any other office.

State School Superintendent

arts are a crucial part of a well–rounded education. Joe Martin (D) – According to SurveyUSA.com, Martin has a 10 point lead over the competition. He was inducted into the Georgia State Univ. Business Hall of Fame. Brian Westlake (D) – A product of the public school system and a former Marine, Westlake is an award–winning high school social studies teacher.

U.S. Representative – District 12 The battle for Barrow’s seat... Mike Horner (R) – This retired Air Force officer was inspired to run for office after attending a Tea Party rally in Washington D.C. He wants the “toothless Republicans” out. Ray McKinney (R) – This self–made business man came in 2nd in the Republican primary last year. Will his campaign have what it takes this year? Jeanne Seaver (R) – Seaver is successful local business woman with support from the Tea Party who wants to make history as the first U.S. Congress-

Vote on July 20th

There is a delegation of Swedish public officials and business people visiting Savannah this week from the city of Boras. The group is here to discuss shared economic development opportunities with officials from the City of Savannah, the Port Authority, and local business people, including giving a seminar on “waste to energy” technology they’ve developed. The “waste to energy” program takes household waste and converts it to energy, including harnessing methane, which fuels public transportation in Boras. The technology not only reduces the amount of trash that ends up in landfills, but also generates revenue for the city. The project is so successful that only about four percent of domestic waste in Boras is sent to the landfill, according to a 2007 report done by the Technical Research Institute of Sweden. “It’s a neat way of preserving the environment while making money off people’s waste and looking at the possibility of starting that discussion in Savannah,” says Bridget Lidy, who was among a group of Savannah officials and staff who went to Sweden last year. Although international travel by council members continues to be a hot button issue during the recession, this visit from the Swedes, and any economic prospects it creates, is a direct result of a trip taken to Sweden last year by City Council members Larry Stuber and Mary Ellen Sprague along with several City staffers.

Getting geeky in Savannah In two fun developments on the local tech front, the Georgia Historical Society (GHS) has a new web app to make finding historical markers more fun, and the City of Savannah is hosting a new podcast to share news. Last month, the GHS unveiled it’s new historical marker web app, developed by local firm Smack Dab. The GHS spent a year documenting and mapping all the historical markers in the state in order to create the app, which works with Google Maps to show where all the markers are. The map is searchable by keywords – like “Johnny Mercer” or “Civil Rights” – and shows relevant markers across the state (map.georgiahistory. com). It will also help you plot driving directions based on markers, so the next time you hit the road, you can stop along the way and learn about state history. There’s an iPhone app coming soon as well. Last week, the City of Savannah’s Public Information Office unveiled its newest tech endeavor, a podcast that you can subscribe to via iTunes or an RSS feed. The podcast, which will be released twice a month, features news, events coverage and more about life in Savannah. The first episode, which is available now, discusses water restrictions, the Savannah Youth Council and free concerts in Johnson Square. For more info, visit the city website (www.savannahga.gov).

The value of higher education As if being a historically significant educational institution wasn’t valuable enough, Savannah State University released a report last week detailing its local economic impact in 2009. According to the study, which was conducted by Selig Center for Economic Growth, SSU had a local impact of $136 million on the local economy, a $9 million increase over 2008. The study found that the university helps create over 1,200 full– and part–time jobs locally, with 427 on–campus and more than 800 in the private sector, supporting the institution and its students. “Savannah State is an educational and economic asset to the area,” says Dr. Earl G. Yarbrough Sr., President of SSU, in a release announcing the study’s results. “The report emphasizes the growth, vitality and financial stability that Savannah State brings to the region during this period of economic recovery.” cs


Reconsidering grass My neighbor’s front lawn is brown; every green leafy thing has died. It looks as if a horrific drought or plague singled out his property while the surrounding yards are verdant. It was, however, not an act of nature that brutally killed the plant life between his house and the street. It was an herbicide, applied by the homeowner himself. The motive for this extreme measure: a dislike of lawn care. Somehow, it made sense to him to unleash a toxic chemical upon the plants with their offensive habit of growing. When he did that he tipped a row of dominoes, effecting beneficial insects, birds, toads, and other wildlife moving through the yard, exposing pets and people to the toxins, and adding contaminated runoff to nearby wells and marshland. Among the implications and the reactions to this man’s drastic deed is a potent idea: the concept of lawns is ripe for a revolution. Over 67 million pounds of pesticides and herbicides are applied to lawns in this country each year. That these chemicals are more extensively used in suburbia than on farmland is mindblowing. Lawns receive between 30–60 percent of the water consumed by residences along the East coast. The percentage skyrockets to over 70 percent in the Southwest. Emissions from gasoline powered lawn equipment comprise approximately 9 percent of one type of air pollution in the United States. Grassy, emerald green yards are a big environmental problem.

Among those calling for a lawn rebellion is an organization not often associated with radical behavior. The venerable Garden Club of America has taken a bold stand in favor of “greening” our yards by relinquishing the need to keep them perfectly green. For example, the GCA declares that watering the lawn is a waste of precious water and not to worry if during a summer drought your grass gets brown and crunchy underfoot. “...It is probably

but a moderate rain quickly revitalized the lawn. This illustrates several things: 1) The Garden Club is correct about the resurrecting power of grasses. 2) There are creative and useful alternatives to grassy spaces. 3) People will take issue with an apparently lifeless lawn (or one that is misbehaving in any way). Prepared for resistance, the GCA is promoting their plan as The New American Lawn. Patriotism! Civic

dormant and will recover when it rains.” When I lived in Florida, during a dry month I did not water my lawn and indeed the centipede grass took on a tawny hue. “Your grass is dead,” my neighbors moaned. It was an interesting possibility. I began planning more flower and herb beds and gravel pathways,

pride! Peer pressure! These people know a bit about marketing. These are the people who once encouraged the very lawn aesthetic they are now attempting to overthrow. At the beginning of the 20th century the Garden Club of America expended a lot of effort and money selling Americans on the importance of a weed free, single grass, neatly manicured lawn.

Their mission was greatly assisted by the invention of the lawnmower, the garden hose and a proliferating number of chemicals geared to the pursuit of the perfectly controlled yard. The New American Lawn is insouciant about weeds. As the GCA points out, “Nature abhors a monoculture.” Clover, once a villain in the lawnscape, is welcomed for its ability to add nitrogen to the soil. Moss, if it appears in shady spots, is lovely and doesn’t need mowing. Wildflowers provide nourishment for bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. The Garden Club recognizes that we have a dysfunctional relationship with our lawns. We love them and yet we have addicted them to dangerous chemicals. We love them, yet we are indoors most of the time. It’s time for a new appreciation for the green spaces around our homes. Less is more. The expense and labor of lawn tending can be greatly reduced if you don’t pump up the grass with water and fertilizers and mow less often. Whether or not you enjoy spending time in your yard, it can be hospitable to birds and other creatures. We don’t have to give up lawns, but we do need to relinquish our manic domination of nature. Then as the Garden Club promises, “You will have clover and dandelions and be able to walk barefoot safely with your pets and children.” It will be good. It will be the New American Lawn. cs For more info: www.gcamerica.org/ pamphlets/lawnbrochure.html

Blotter All cases from recent Savannah/Chatham Police Dept. incident reports

Middle school crime spree!

There has been a rash of crimes committed by 12 year olds in the past few weeks. In the first incident, a pizza delivery person called police after being held up at gunpoint for two pizzas and some breadsticks.

The delivery person arrived at the destination with an order only to discover that it was an abandoned house, at which time a 12 year old brandishing a shotgun stepped out and demanded the food. Police later located the suspect riding his bike in the area. In the second incident, a 12 year old stole a car from a parking lot during the late afternoon or early evening. Later that evening, police were notified by the owner that he had located the vehicle while driving around the area with his brother. They attempted to stop the driver of the stolen vehicle, who then bailed out from the car. The owner chased down the

• An officer responded to a 911 call hang up and upon arriving at the residence spoke with the homeowner, who stated that his 19 year old daughter was either drunk or on drugs. He said she was the one who called 911. The officer was invited in to speak with the young woman. He immediately noticed the smell of alcohol and asked her if she was alright. She said that she had an argument with her boyfriend earlier and got drunk. The officer asked her how old she was and she stated 19. He then asked her why she called 911 and she stated that it was because she was scared of her father. She was arrested for underage drinking and en route to CCDC made numerous comments about only being drunk and that she didn’t kill anyone.

She stopped the subject and asked if he was aware that it was a violation of city ordinance to urinate in public. The subject, seemingly hoping for a warning, said that it was his first time ever doing something like that. The officer asked him for his information, and he gave her what turned out to be a misspelled last name, as well as a false date of birth and social security number. The officer tried to run his information, but found no records. Eventually, his correct information was ascertained and he was charged with disorderly conduct, public indecency and obstruction. He was transported to CCDC.

• An officer on patrol stopped at the intersection of 36th and Drayton and saw a man standing in front of a tree with his hand in front of groin area. As the officer tried to figure out what was going on, she noticed that there was a wet stream on the ground in front of him, and that he was in the midst of urinating on the sidewalk.

• An officer was dispatched to a hospital in reference to an injury report. A woman was grilling out on the 4th of July. She opened a side vent to add more charcoal and then when closing the vent, flames flared up, shooting out the side and burning her hand. The burn caused the skin to peel away on her hand. She was given a

suspect and held him until police arrived.

CRN. • A grocery store was robbed on a Saturday morning. Around 8am, officers were dispatched to a call of a robbery in progress. Employees said that they had been opening the store when a black male with a mask and handgun entered the store. He made everyone get on the ground while he removed money from the register. At some point during the robbery, a customer was pistol whipped and his phone was taken. The robber then walked out the front door minutes before police arrived. They later found and arrested the subject, recovering both a handgun and a shotgun. There are other suspects still at large. cs

If I take a piece of pizza that’s been sitting on the table awhile and microwave it for one minute, would that kill bacteria and decrease the chance of food poisoning? —David Chattin-McNichols First, can bacteria really just land on your food while it’s sitting on the table? Second, what’s the best way to kill bacteria? Third, is a microwave a suitable tool for bactericide? The first question is easy. Yes, bacteria not only are found on floors, tabletops, and other surfaces, they drift around in the air too. Scientists collecting air samples for 17 weeks in San Antonio and Austin, Texas, recently found 1,800 types of airborne bacteria. Next question: killing bacteria. Alcohol will do the trick, which may lead pizza lovers to think: problem solved. Unfortunately, the alcohol concentration needed to kill bacteria will go a long way toward killing you. Sealing bacteria off from oxygen will suppress some, but anaerobic bacteria can do fine without. The best method is heat. Milk is pasteurized by heating it to about 162 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 seconds. But even that’s not a sure thing—some bacteria thrive at temperatures up to 167 degrees, and certain bacterial spores, such as Clostridium botulinum (responsible for the deadly botulism toxin), can survive for hours at 212 degrees. Will a microwave kill microbes? Sure. Microwave ovens use electromagnetic radiation to heat water molecules. It’s the heat, not the microwaves, that’s lethal here. (Some contend microwave energy itself is fatal to bacteria, but that’s unproven.) The key is making it hot enough uniformly enough for long enough. If the food heats unevenly, a common problem in microwaves, some bacteria may survive. My assistants Fierra and Una sprang into action as follows: 1. They assembled 30 petri dishes containing agar gel (a bacteria nutrient),

plus an impressive collection of graduated cylinders and other lab equipment. 2. One Pizza Hut Meat Lover’s Pizza (Fierra’s favorite) was ordered. Upon delivery three swabs were taken of the pizza and applied to three petri dishes. Additional samples of pizza were diluted with distilled water, in ratios of 1:10 and 1:100, and applied to two more pairs of dishes—making seven dishes in all—just in case the pure pizza swabs gave rise to such swarming masses of microbes that we couldn’t count the colonies individually. 3. The pizza was allowed to sit in the open air for four hours. Then three more swabs of full-strength pizza were applied to petri dishes, as were two each of the 1:10 and 1:100 dilutions, for a total of seven more swabbed dishes. 4. The pizza was microwaved in a 1,000-watt oven for 30 seconds on the highest setting. Another seven dishes. 5. The pizza was microwaved on high for 30 additional seconds. More dishes. 6. Control swabs were taken from distilled water; another control dish was exposed briefly to the air. 7. The petri dishes were set aside (in sealed bags to prevent dehydration) for one week at 75 degrees, then examined for bacteria. Results: • The undiluted samples taken from the freshly delivered pie generated 11 bacterial colonies. (Nothing doing in the diluted samples.) We’ll take that as our baseline for normal, generally harmless bacterial infestation. • The full-strength samples taken after the pizza had been sitting out for four hours generated 28 bacterial colonies; two more showed up at the 1:10 dilution. Probably all were harmless, but I figure triple the bugs = triple the risk. • The samples taken after 30 seconds of microwaving produced 17 bacterial colonies; the 60-second samples produced only three. The diluted and control samples produced nada. Conclusions: (1) Heating the pizza for 30 seconds was relatively ineffectual. (2) Heating it for a full minute killed most of the bacteria but not all. Having exhausted the science budget, we didn’t go in for another round of testing, but we suspect that at least two minutes of microwaving would be needed to ensure 100 percent bacteria eradication, at the possible cost of rendering the pizza inedible. (3) Fresh pizza has its share of microbes, most undoubtedly benign— still, you never know. Care to join me for a light supper of guaranteed-sterile agar gel? cs

news of the weird Lead Story

“Why are you still alive?” is the question doctors ask Ozzy Osbourne, the hard-rock singer and reality-TV star, who says he is now clean and sober after a lifetime of unimaginably bad habits. In June, he started two new ventures: undergoing the three-month process of genetic mapping (to help doctors learn why, indeed) and becoming a “health advice” columnist for London’s Sunday Times. At various points in his life, the now-cholesterol-conscious, vegetarian Osbourne said he drank four bottles of cognac a day, smoked cigars like they were cigarettes, took 42 prescribed medications and many more “backstage” drugs that he could not even identify. Osbourne also has a Parkinson’s-like genetic tremor, was once in a medically induced coma after an accident, and endured anti-rabies shots after famously biting into a bat on stage (“I thought it was a rubber toy”).

as qualification for office. When one contrary fact after another about his record was pointed out by reporters, Kirk explained, “I simply misremembered it wrong.” He admitted that, contrary to his numerous public statements, he was not actually “in” the Iraq Desert Storm war; did not actually “command the Pentagon War Room” when he was assigned there as a Navy Reservist; and was not actually once Naval “Intelligence Officer of the Year.” He is now vying for the U.S. Senate seat once held by Barack Obama. • In May, Douglas Ballard and Joseph Foster were indicted for selling fraudulent loans in exchange for bribes, while they were vice presidents of the Atlantaarea “faith-based” Integrity Bank. The bank opened in 2000, touting Christian principles, giving Bibles to new customers, and encouraging prayer at employee gatherings. (The bank closed in 2008, thought then merely to be the victim of sour real-estate loans.)

Our Litigious Society

“If Google told you to jump off a cliff, would you?” asked a Fortune columnist, describing the lawsuit filed in May by Lauren Rosenberg, asking for damages of more than $100,000 against Google Maps after she was struck by a car. Rosenberg had queried the map service for a “walking route” between points in Park City, Utah, but a short stretch of the suggested route lacked sidewalks. Rosenberg was hit while walking in the street. Though Google and other map services “warn” users against walking in the street, Rosenberg’s route was delivered on her Blackberry.

What About Our “Human Rights”?

• Update: News of the Weird reported in 2005 on a Welshman’s invention of the “Mosquito,” a device that emits an irritating, pulsating, very-high-pitched noise and is marketed to shopkeepers to drive away loitering children and teenagers, since the pitch is audible to them but rarely to anyone older than in the mid-20s (because audio range contracts as we age). In June, following an investigation, the Council of Europe declared the Mosquito a “human rights violation,” in that the sounds it emits constitute “torture.”

Least Competent People

• Jihadists: They blow themselves up by mistake (such as Pakistani terrorist Qari Zafar did in June); they botch airline shoe- and underwear-bombing and buy the wrong fertilizer for urban car bombs; they brag too much; and they watch far too much Internet pornography. Evidence amassed by Daniel Byman and Christine Fair, writing in the July/August issue of The Atlantic, has led them to suggest that America and its allies should treat jihadists as “nitwits.” It is possible, the authors conclude, that there has not been a truly competent jihadist terrorist since Mohammad Atta led the Sept. 11, 2001, missions. • Matadors: Christian Hernandez, 21, making his big-time bullfighting debut at Plaza Mexico in Mexico City in June, ran from the ring trembling in fear at the first sign of his bull. He was then coaxed to return but once again fled and submitted his resignation. Though Hernandez was contrite (“I didn’t have the ability. I didn’t have the balls.”), he was arrested for violating his contract and released only after he paid a fine. cs By chuck shepherd UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

40 OZ. TO FREEDOM

San Diego’s finest is subtitled “A Tribute to Sublime,” and that’s what they do: With lead singer Dane Scott channeling the late, self–medicating Bradley Nowell, the band plays the fierce, fast and fiery skater–punk and reggae/ska/ dub/rap that made hyper–kinetic Sublime (briefly) the Biggest Band in the field. “The hardest part about being in a Sublime tribute band,” Scott has said, “is remembering all the lyrics. Sometimes Bradley rapped so fast, it’s hard to even tell what he’s saying.” Terry Davis is the bassist; Mark LeBlance plays drums. If you’re reading this far, you already know that 40 oz. to Freedom – the title of the first Sublime album – is a reference to a fat bottle of malt liquor. Listen & learn: www.myspace. com/40ouncestofreedomband At 10 p.m. Wednesday, July 14 at the Live Wire Music Hall, 307 W. River St.

THE PRESERVATION

There’s something very cool about a band that channels the Kinks and the Buckaroos, the Rolling Stones and the Strangers – and gets it right. And leaves you yearning for more or the same. Austin’s The Preservation walks that line time and again – the guitars are alternately heavy and delicately chicken–picked, the vocalist (not sure if it’s Andy, Ben or Mario) has the weedy, trouble– in–mind timbre of a young Jerry Garcia. Yet The Preservation isn’t a noodle–all–night jam band (not that there’s anything wrong with that!) – the group’s songs are sharp, pointed and baited with enough hooks to lure anybody in from the deep.

‘Brooklyn Triple Duo Tour’

It’s borough–palooza at the Sentient Bean this week: Three dynamic duos, all from Brooklyn, all featuring just guitar and drums. But the similarities end there. As most red–blooded rock ‘n’ roll–loving men know, there’s not much cooler than a long–haired girl playing killer electric guitar. And if she has a strong, throaty and slightly seductive voice, even better. She Keeps Bees (pictured) is a Brooklyn duo based around the songs of Jessica Larrabee, who – believe me – could front a full band and bring down every house on the Eastern Seaboard and beyond. Think Chrissie Hynde or P.J. Harvey coffee–ground with a bit of early, pre–alcoholism Grace Slick. Her partner in the group is drummer Andy LaPlant – yes, it’s like the White Stripes in reverse, and yes, it’s electrifying, bluesy, and totally addictive. The bill also includes The Naked Hearts, with singer and guitarist Amy Cooper and drummer Noah Wheeler. Starting to sense a pattern here? Cooper is a professional photographer, Wheeler a trained jazz bassist, but they’re clearly throwing their passions into The Naked Hearts – the music is dark, tenay and his band open for Jake Owen at the Beaufort Water Festival ...

moody and extremely well–crafted. Like Larrabee in She Keeps Bees, Cooper is a vocalist and frontwoman who demands – and deserves – your attention. There’s a bit of role reversal going on in This Frontier Needs Heroes, Brooklyn siblings Brad and Jessica Lauretti. He plays acoustic guitar and sings; she does the drumwork, plus harmonies and percussion. The twosome’s tunes are like those of midnight Texas doom songwriter Townes Van Zandt, or the winsome and woeful Jeff Buckley. There’s usually a sonic twist thrown in, keeping TFNH just a nose ahead of standard–issue acoustic acts. This triple–bill comes highly recommended, dear reader.

Mr. Sharpe — sat on the floor, played bongos and harmonica and sang a few harmonies. He was back in all his loose–limbed glory when it was time for the full–on band performance, dressed in his trademark white trousers and jacket, long red scarf draped around his neck. Before long, the jacket came off, and Ebert did the rest of the show shirtless. He likes to do a sort of standing–in–place, Native American dance. Most of the Zeros’ songs are a pastiche of psychedelic–era rock ‘n’ roll, country rock and other stuff from the golden age of the hippie. And they’re simple sing–a–longs, with repeated choruses and a lot of percussive sounds and audience–participation handclapping. That’s fine, because there are so many musicians on the stage, including two guitarists, a trumpet player and an accordionist, that everybody gets a cool solo sooner or later; each tune takes on a slightly different texture. In fact, Stewart Cole’s trumpet gives the music an otherwordly, Man of La Mancha on mushrooms feel.

Beards, bliss and beach balls Tonight we’re gonna party like it’s 1969. The vibes were so positive Sunday night in the Trustees Theater that any criticism of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros — the traveling ragtag hippie band that recently wowed the masses at Bonnaroo and Coachella — will have to focus on the music, not the event itself. This was what used to be affectionately called a “love–in.” “Loose” doesn’t begin to describe this show. During an informal opening set from Magnetic Zeroes pianist Tay Strathairn, most (if not all) of the other members of the group drifted out and joined in. Three or four tunes into the set, the audience — about 700 people, by my estimation — broke loose and crowded the area in front of the stage. Beach balls appeared out of nowhere. And there everyone stayed, dancing and whooping it up, until the show ended nearly two hours later. During the opening set, dark–eyed frontman Alex Ebert — the erstwhile

40oz to freedom

fri july 16 – 9pm, FREE Vocalist Jade Castrinos has one of the strongest instruments in the band, and when she and Ebert sang duets and back–and–forths, it was sweetly reminiscent of Grace Slick and Marty Balin in the glory days of Jefferson Airplane. The weak link, surprisingly, is Ebert himself, whose thin, reedy voice unfortunately brought the Airplane’s Paul Kantner (a famous non–singer) to mind. Ebert certainly has a strong stage presence, and he knows how to work a crowd, but too often – if you really listened – he seemed to be doing a weak Jim Morrison imitation. And his between–song patter – “Ownership is a figment of your imagination. So if somebody takes something from you, don’t take it so fucking seriously” – was almost comically Morrisonesque. When the concert ended, a bit past the Trustees’ usual bedtime of 11 p.m., half of the audience was onstage with the band, feeling the love and having fun, dancing to the Zeros’ rather mindless communal beats. Party on, dude. CS

an ey’ says Karen Morg rn tto a l a tri a ng ei than b ‘Comedy’s harder

by Bill DeYoung | bill@connectsavannah.com

“As Seen on Court TV!” Karen Morgan doesn’t use that phrase on her promotional posters, but she could: As a trial attorney with a high–profile Atlanta law firm, she made her first–ever TV appearance on cable’s most realistic reality show. That was quite a few years ago (her specialty was medical malpractice suits). These days, Morgan is a standup comedienne, so good that she was twice a finalist on Nick At Nite’s Search for the Funniest Mom in America – bringing her full circle, back into the bizarro world of reality TV. She was, of course, a mom by then – as a matter of fact, that’s why she left the lawyer biz. Morgan performs, with fellow comedian Nancy Witter, at the Lucas Theatre Saturday. The show is called Laughs For Lemonade, because it’s a fundraiser for Mom’s Lemonade Fund, a support group for ovarian cancer research at Memorial University Medical Center. Morgan, her Boston–born husband and their three children live just outside of Portland, Maine. A Georgia native – she was born and raised in Athens and graduated from UGA – Morgan speaks in a very familiar, honeyed drawl – sort of a cross between Paula Deen and Nancy Grace (that is, if Nancy Grace had a sense of humor). You moved your practice to Maine when you got married. How much of a culture shock was that? Karen Morgan: I was in the thick of it in Atlanta, and then I moved up to Maine where there’s only a million people in the whole state. So the way I talk, I very quickly became an anomaly.

I’ll never forget the first day I had a court appearance. It was snowing; I’m used to going to court in my suit, my pantyhose and high heel shoes. My husband said ‘Well, you’ll have to wear your L.L. Bean boots, because that’s what everybody wears up here, in the snow.” I wore those, and I put my dress shoes in my briefcase. As I was walking into the courthouse, evidently I dropped one of my little dress shoes in the snow. I didn’t have time to go back and find it, so I’m standing there in court with my nice suit on and my L.L. Bean boots and my briefcase. I thought “I’m gonna have to argue this motion in this outfit.” I looked around, and everybody in that courtroom had on L.L. Bean boots. I was the only one that had them on with a skirt, but I felt like “OK, this is a good place to be. I like this place.”

Karen Morgan: The answer is, you have to have a bump in the middle, and the bump is called “Have Three Children in three and a half years.” Motherhoood sorta bumped me off the sanity track, the track of doing anything normal. But after I had children, I wasn’t afraid of nothin’! Comedy’s harder than being a trial attorney, it really is. It’s very challenging, but I’m not afraid. I had babies in a room where 18 people saw my bottom. You just have to go with it. Nothing scares me any more, and nothing embarrasses me, and the fear of failure is just not on my list any more. OK, but what happened? Karen Morgan: I was home with these three babies and I told my husband, “I have got to get out of this house. I’m gonna kill you, I’m gonna kill the dog – I won’t kill the kids, but you’re in danger.” There was a little comedy club that was having a standup comedy class, and so I said “That sounds kind of fun.” I signed up, I went and I just loved it – mostly just to get out of the house. My teacher for that class was a guy that had a lot of connections down in New York, and he told me that Nick at Nite was having this contest for the Funniest Moms in America. He said “I know you’re new, but I’m going to send your tape in.” I got to the final seven out of a thousand people; we ended up doing the TV special, and that’s how I met Nancy, who I tour with. And I’ve been doing it ever since. There’s a YouTube clip from America’s Got Talent, from a few months ago, where judge Howie Mandel is saying to you, “you weren’t that funny.” You look horrified. What’s the story with that? Karen Morgan: Talk about not being afraid or embarrassed! That was an interesting piece of editing. He didn’t even say that – that’s the irony of how they edited it. It probably would’ve helped if I had seen America’s Got Talent before I went there. Because there was a guy who was a speed–eater, another guy doing a drill through his face. Those people got through, I didn’t. I had a nice, five–minute conversation with all three judges before, and afterwards. I may be opening for Howie Mandel this year. He didn’t ever say “you weren’t that funny” – I think they edited that in from another performer. And the clip that they used with my face scared like

that was from the buzzer sound – it scared the crap out of me. Ironically, none of it is reality–based TV. With television, I’ve learned that you just can’t rely on anything. They edit how they want to. Of course, they didn’t put it in the nice things that people said. With Funniest Moms, did you have to tailor your act to mom–styled humor? Karen Morgan: At the time, my kids were pretty small, I was in the house with three kids. So I write about what’s going on around me. My material was actually perfect timing for that particular contest, because I was writing about “the trials of motherhood that require you to either laugh or cry.” These days, I don’t talk about that kind of stuff. There’s no more bottles and diapers, because my kids are out of bottles and diapers. In the second year of that particular contest, they wanted the next Roseanne. And you know what? I ain’t it. And I knew going into it that I wasn’t gonna change my material or change my personality. If you’re not yourself, you come across as being disingenuous, and it’s not funny. Men tend to be a bit leery of female comics. Should we tell them that you and Nancy aren’t really doing “chick comedy”? Or “mom–com”? Karen Morgan: If there’s any man– bashing going on on the stage, it’s our own husbands, who are really good sports. I have a 20–minute bit about my husband’s vasectomy, and thank God he’s a good sport. The best comedy has a pretty big grain of truth in it, and we just sort of manipulate what we need to. Nancy’s remarried; she has an older husband and they’re in a different part of their lives. She talks about being a little older with her husband, and what’s funny about that. It’s all life stuff; it’s all about marriage, parenting and everyday–observation stuff. Men should not be afraid at all. They should come with their wives and be prepared to laugh.

This week’s specials in the theater department are both musicals – a bit of light summer wear, if you like. Kimmi Sampieri is directing The Last Five Years, Jason Robert Brown’s successful off–Broadway one–act, at Muse Arts Warehouse. There are just two characters in the show, which has little dialogue – they sing about one another, alternately and each from a different perspective, about the rise and fall of their romantic relationship. Both Jamie (Ryan McCurdy) and Kathryn (Brittny Hargrove) tell the tale in reverse chronological order. As the songs continue, they meet in the middle — when things were blissful. According to the director, it’s easy to follow this Rod Serling–esque timeline. “I’ve seen it where somebody shows you a date, flashed on a screen,” Sampieri says. “I don’t think it’s important to know the date, or necessarily the time of year even. Because when it’s important, it’s obvious. It’ll be told through the emotions of where each character is, and once you get the gist of it, probably the third song in, if you’re not familiar with the song you will realize at that

King, an Alabama native who’s lived up Athens way for 25 years, recently retired as assistant director of the University of Georgia Library. Coleman spent a good bit of time doing theater in Athens in the 1980s and ‘90s, and that’s where he met King. Last January, she co–starred in his Savannah production of I Do, I Do. “The person who was originally going to do it wasn’t able to, so he called me to see if I could,” says King. “I had already done that show with him twice, and although it had been a few years, we were used to working with each other. He thought I could do it, and I did. I pulled it off.” CS

There are plenty of “Aha!” moments in Armstrong Atlantic State University’s production of the classic Agatha Christie mystery The Mousetrap. Everyone’s guilty, and everyone’s innocent, and with each new stretch of dialogue you’ll be absolutely certain that someone has just implicated himself (or herself) in the throttling death of one of their fellow characters. The Mousetrap is indeed a game of cat–and–mouse. The cat in question is police sergeant Trotter (Kevin Buttimer), who’s arrived at a lonely country hotel to look for clues in a recent grisly crime in London. Things get worse from there, as one of the guests at Monkswell Manor also turns up dead, and it’s up to Trotter to question each member of the eccentric assemblage to find out who’s got something to hide. Guess what? Everybody does! It’s a motley crew of standard–issue British oddballs: There’s stuffy Major Metcalf (Alec Caldas), imperious old Mrs. Boyle (Mary Elizabeth Hawks), flighty youngster Christopher Wren (Josh Warnock), mysterious Miss Casewell (India Kirk), and the proprietors of Monkswell Manor, newlyweds Giles and Mollie Ralston (John E. Wright and Erin Meals). Into the mix comes Mr. Parvacini (L. Black), who may be the weirdest character ever to walk across a Savannah stage. Parvacini is dressed in black, sports a bright, white Albert Einstein wig and a Dali–esque moustache, and speaks in a sing–songy accent of indeterminate origin. During intermission at the performance I attended, most of the lobby conversations seemed to involve theories as to who done it.

Before you go assuming well, it had to be Col. Mustard in the library with a candlestick, bear in mind that The Mousetrap is the longest continually–running play in history — it’s been on London’s West End since 1952 and is still going strong — so old Agatha knew a thing or two about edge–of–seat plotting. It is, to quote Homer J. Simpson, fiendish in its intricacies. The AASU cast is clearly having fun with this theater warhorse. To a performer, the British accents stay true from start to finish – something of a rarity, especially in college productions – and the characterizations are fleshed out with appropriate body language and little bits of business. The play may be a bit talky, but things are never slow. Black’s Parvacini is a delight, mostly because the character laughs at inappropriate moments; Warnock’s Wren comes off like one of those youthful, artistic twits portrayed by Graham Chapman in countless Monty Python sketches. Although he looks a bit like Leonardo DiCaprio in a bowler hat, Buttimer gives Trotter the proper amount of police–official gravitas; likewise, Kirk’s Casewell remains aloof and mysterious even as those around her are falling to pieces. A big shout–out to director Peter Mellen, whose brilliant set design makes the goings–on feel appropriately claustrophobic, all the better for an audience waiting with bated breath to see the mousetrap — and The Mousetrap — snap shut. cs ‘The Mousetrap’ continues July 15–18 at AASU’s Jenkins Hall Theater.

Tim’s restaurant hopping turns up intriguing and satisfying meals. He picks some experiences every week to share:

Staring into the fridge last week, I realized I had assembled something of a “summer survival kit.” You can, too. Lay in these staples and be the gathering place for a quick summer cool down. Chilled wines: Chilled wines are refreshing, but grow even more so when the flavors are less sweet to tart. Rose is an obvious choice and tends to satisfy the red wine drinkers. Consider the Aussie blend from Turkey Flat Vineyards or the aromatic French blend, Routas Ros Rouviere. White wines like Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay are go–to chillers; don’t overlook affordable French wines like tart Bordeaux Blanc or lip–smacking Picpoul Pinet. India Pale Ales or Pale Ales: Pale ales are generally less hoppy, but the bitterness and citrus characteristics both beer styles offer refreshing, palate cleansing options for beer drinkers. My current fav IPA is Raging Bitch, a Belgian–influenced beer celebrating the 20th anniversary of Flying Dog Brewery. The tongue–in– cheek, canine–themed labels, with cool artwork by Ralph Steadman, are an entertaining read while you’re sipping away. Raging Bitch adds the smoothness of a yeasty Belgian beer with a hint of smokiness on the finish to the bright hops of classic IPA. Warning, Drink one, then you salivate every time you see the label. Thanks Pavlov! Other hopped choices: Dogfish 60 Minute, Oskar Blues Dale’s Pale Ale, Bell’s Two Hearted Ale. Kentucky bourbon: Even master distillers of Kentucky bourbon admit they keep they spirits in the fridge. The sweet, caramel notes of Kentucky bourbon lends itself to be consumed neat, but chilled bourbon added to ice doesn’t suffer from the melt down – and

watered down flavor. For refreshing summer cocktails like mint juleps or whiskey sours, staring with chilled booze makes the process easier. Ditto your other spirits: Chilling vodka and gin means you get a super–cold martini! Instant julep: Mull fresh mint in a highball glass, add cracked ice, then top and stir with four ounces Wild Turkey American Honey liqueur – faster than the Running of the Roses! Mixes: For the same reason as above, I keep a ready supply of additives: tonic water, soda, whiskey sour and Bloody Mary mixes. Talented mixologists lay in a crop of garnishes like lemons, limes, fresh oranges, cherries and olives (don’t forget the blue cheese stuffed olives!). Likewise, chill some barware like martini and high ball glasses, shakers and pitchers. I do not like a chilled glass for beer – melting frost waters down the beer’s flavor. Low alcohol beers: A boisterous, high gravity beer in summer is a nap waiting to happen. This is when good hosts turn to low ABV styles like Pilsner or Farmhouse Ale. Some of my trusted session beers (under 5.5 percent ABV) include Oskar Blues Mama’s Little Yella Pils, Samuel Smith Nut Brown Ale, Stone Levitation Ale and Terrapin Rye Pale Ale. Lastly, don’t forget that in summer some folks cut alcohol consumption. Stock fruit juices, sparkling water and, of course, sweet tea to ensure you’re the perfect host! cs

Topsail Bar & Grill

I rarely ramp up expectations when heading to a new waterside eatery on Tybee Island– there are winners, and there are losers. Topsail Bar & Grill, in the former locations of Groover’s, Dewey’s Dockside, et al, falls into the winner category. Buzz had been good, but indicated the menu had taken an Asian spin – with an decidedly Korean influence. How would bibimbap play on the shrimp docks? Apparently, very well. I found a menu featuring Yin Yang rice, wok–sauteed veggies and even bibimbap. The more pedestrian offerings designed for tourista palates and less adventurous diners took on a whole new interpretation. There’s no simple burger on the menu here, but a near half–pound burger topped with sliced avocado and grilled shrimp. Korean barbecue is served savory and with a delicious mountain of stir fried rice. My grilled tuna was truly grilled! It was rare, had a definite smokey flavor and exploded with flavor when touched with a spot of ginger–chile sauce. Sauteed veggies with an ample supply of snow peas were crispy fresh and flavorful – but took well to a few splashes of sriracha sauce. My friends and I split two apps – golden brown home made hushpuppies served smelling of sweet onion and enhanced by dunking in melted butter. Crab–stuffed, bacon–wrapped shrimp are made fresh in–house, according to the owner. We were stuffed, but managed to put a hurtin’ on a pair of homemade desserts – a huge triple chocolate cake filled with mousse and topped with thick fudge sauce and a pleasantly balanced piece of Key Lime pie. I’m not a Key Lime pie fan – but will go back for another piece of Topsail’s. Three cheers for attentive and knowledgeable service. A full bar and a pretty good selection of craft beers will soothe your parched throats; bands rock the house on Saturday nights. Paddle, sail, drive or hitch hike to this barely discovered new Lazaretto Creek eatery – it’s a keeper! 4 Old Tybee Road at Lazaretto Creek/786–8686

Cha–cha–changing

Chef Chris Russell, the intuitive and imaginative driving force behind the remarkable small plates menu at Sugar Daddy’s, has taken his toque and moved on. No word yet on where he will resurface, but it’ll be interesting to see how this affects the fairly new Sugar Daddy’s. The tiny small plates wine bar had gotten a fast start, thanks in no small part to Chef Chris. Staying relevant among picky diners is tough enough – without turnover of key staff. cs

Doesn’t it seem like there’s been an abundance of those traveling burlesque/ freak shows in town this year? Yes, it does. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with that – I enjoy fire–eaters, strippers and tattooed dwarves as much as the next person – but there seems to be a new bunch of ‘em climbing off a tour bus every time you turn around. Setting up on the stage of the Jinx Aug. 13 is the Coney Island Cockabilly Roadshow, a traveling circus from New York that combines sideshow acts, burlesque dancers and a twang–heavy psychobilly band. The headline acts are Jelly Boy The Clown & the Squidling Bros. Circus Sideshow, Jason and the Punknecks, Viva le Vox, Guitar Neck, Hicky Hawkins and The Holy Roller Sideshow. Girls! Geeks! Guitars! Grittiness! Yeah, buddy. More information as we get it. Step right up!

For Lori A reminder that Thursday, July 29 is the city–wide “Living it Up for Lori” event, which will raise funds to help Rhythm Riot vocalist Lori Stuart with her medical expenses. Stuart suffered a stroke May 3 and has been diagnosed with Locked–in Syndrome. Her body is paralyzed, and she communicates by blinking her eyes. So far, these clubs are participating: JJ Bonerz, Chuck’s Bar, Churchill’s Pub, Bay Street Blues, Bernie’s Oyster House, Live Wire Music Hall, Pour Larry’s, Wild Wing Caf , Tantra Lounge, The Sentient Bean, Rock House Tybee, Tailgate Sports Bar and Grill, Augie’s Pub, Jukebox Bar and Grill, Island Sports Bar and Britannia Pub. More are signing up every day. Among the performing musicians, who’ll sign that evening’s paychecks over to the Lori fund: Liquid Ginger, Bottles & Cans, Jeff Beasley, Magic Rocks, Rhythm Riot, Hitman, Outta Your Element and others. Again, the sign–ups continue, so keep it here. CS

Despicable Me, Twilight: Eclipse, The Last Airbender, Grown Ups, The A-Team

Despicable Me When James Stewart offers to lasso the moon for Donna Reed in Frank Capra’s classic It’s a Wonderful Life, it’s purely a romantic gesture. When Gru (Steve Carell), the star of the 3–D opus Despicable Me, plots to shrink the moon to a size small enough so that he can make off with it, it’s clearly to show that he’s the baddest dude around. After all, if a supervillain isn’t feared and respected, then what good is he?

Despicable Me, one of those non–Pixar animated efforts that actually turns out to be good (happily, we’ve seen an upswing in the number of such worthy achievements, as evidenced by the likes of How to Train Your Dragon and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs), is a witty, congenial lark that obviously won’t have the staying power of Toy Story 3 but serves quite nicely as a pleasing placeholder in the cinematic summer of 2010. Sweet–natured yet also avoiding the cloying sentiment that tarnishes any great number of toon tales, this finds Gru enlisting the aid of three oblivious orphan girls to help him one–up his biggest competitor in the supervillain sweepstakes, a self–satisfied nebbish (Jason Segel) who calls himself Vector (and who comes off as the cartoon version of Kick–Ass’ Red Mist). Naturally, Gru knows nothing about children – he places their food and water in dog bowls and sets out newspapers on the floor – and just as naturally, the girls will teach him about family and responsibility. But that comes later. First, the movie has to let loose with a volley of inspired sight gags, a smattering of adult–oriented humor (note the homage to The Godfather), and some screen–pushing innovations to justify the 3–D expense.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse The Twilight Saga: Eclipse isn’t the best of three, but neither is it the worst. Instead, this adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s blockbuster book falls somewhere in the middle, between the nicely captured teen angst of 2008’s Twilight and the ill–fated emotional oasis of 2009’s The Twilight Saga: New Moon. Clearly, we’re not talking about quality to match the Toy Story trilogy, but neither are we plumbing the Police Academy depths. Detractors would disagree, but that’s because most come from that fanboy camp that cannot abide the thought of movies centered around women and their desires (see also: Sex and the City). The Twilight series (on screen anyway; I haven’t read the novels) is often only so much

melodramatic glop, but at its best, it also taps into that essence which informs youthful, blinding love, when amorous emotions are so scalding hot that the only choices that make sense to a young girl are either to be consumed with desire or perish outright (usually symbolically, as in “If he doesn’t ask me to the prom, I’ll just die!”). The canniness of the Twilight franchise is that it uses its protagonist, Bella Swan (Kirsten Stewart), to literalize these desires. Having spent the first movie falling in love with sparkly emo vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and the second picture brooding over his departure, Bella is now fully at the point where she feels that spending her life by his side as one of the undead beats anything that the human world has to offer. Others aren’t so sure. Chief among these is Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner), the Native American hunk who’s able to change into a werewolf at will. Deeply fond of Bella, he’s determined to win her from Edward, largely by offering himself as a warm–blooded alternative to the pasty, ice–cold bloodsucker (their face–off leads to the movie’s funniest line, Jacob’s verbal smackdown of Edward while they’re sharing a tent with Bella late in the movie). Yet even Edward and his fellow vampires aren’t so eager for Bella to give up her life to join their ranks: In one of the film’s best scenes, Rosalie (Nikki Reed) relates to Bella the sad tale of how she became a vampire, without any say in the matter. (Another fine scene finds Jasper, played by Jackson Rathbone, sharing his back story, making me wish we could have spent more screen time on all the vampires’ origins.) As Bella struggles with her choices – vampire or human?

Edward or Jacob? Coke or Pepsi? – other developments pose immediate threats to the Forks, Wash., community. The vampire and werewolf communities continue to snarl at each other’s collective throats. A series of slayings is taking place in nearby Seattle. The vampiric Victoria (Bryce Dallas Howard) still seeks revenge. And the vampire overlords, the Volturi, have been snooping around for reasons unknown. Returning screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg and new series director David Slade (Hard Candy) try to wrestle all this material into a coherent shape, with middling results. The inconsistent tone results in an opening act that’s lethargic; thankfully, the picture eventually hits its strides. There are a number of ingredients likely to earn titters, from some overripe lines to several of the characterizations; for my money, nothing’s more risible than the Volturi, who are supposed to be monster masters but come across as models for a new Goth fashion line. Yet for all the film’s flaws, there’s much that it gets right. The visual effects are better than in previous installments, and this allows the battle between “good” vampires, “bad” vampires, and werewolves to deliver the climactic goods when they count. (And thank God some studio idiot didn’t suggest converting this to 3–D, as every other movie seems to be these days.) Stewart again makes Bella a watchable heroine, and while Pattinson and Lautner may not reveal themselves as the most accomplished actors around, they’re nevertheless desirable for these roles, especially in the scenes in which Pattinson’s ethereal angst bounces off Lautner’s robust earthiness.

Knight And Day Cameron Diaz did some of her best acting when she was cast opposite Tom Cruise in Cameron Crowe’s underrated Vanilla Sky, but the difference between that dark mindbender and this sunny concoction is as glaring as the difference between ... well, I’m not gonna say it. The similarity between the films, though, is obvious – specifically, the fact that Cruise and Diaz again prove to be an engaging team. Upgraded from the supporting status she held in Vanilla Sky (Penelope Cruz was the lead chiquita), Diaz here plays June Havens, an innocent who gets sucked into the high–voltage world of secret agent Roy Miller (Cruise). Roy repeatedly insists to June that he’s actually an honorable FBI agent who’s been set up by his colleague Fitzgerald (Peter Sarsgaard) as a way to cover up his own nefarious actions; of course, Fitzgerald later informs the confused gal that he’s the one on the level and that Roy is a former agent turned rogue. June doesn’t know who to believe (not so those of us in the audience), although she does know that Roy is remarkably adept at keeping her alive whenever bullets whiz by and explosions are set off in the vicinity. Director James Mangold and writer Patrick O’Neill mean for none of this to be taken seriously, but even escapist popcorn fare should have some semblance of intelligence. Instead, Knight and Day is often so preposterous (especially during the CGI–heavy action scenes) that it makes The A–Team look as complex as L.A. Confidential by comparison. Luckily, Cruise and Diaz both have their movie–star wattage burning bright, and their easy–going rapport makes the whole confection go down easily.

The live–action spectacle The Last Airbender is based on the animated Nickelodeon series Avatar: The Last Airbender, and were writer–director M. Night Shyamalan really as brilliant as his admirers insist, he would have demanded that the studio retain the word Avatar in the title – that act alone could have added an extra $10 million to the coffers from ill–informed folks thinking they were going to witness a sequel to the James Cameron smash. Left to its own devices, though, it’s difficult to ascertain whether the picture will earn enough to warrant its planned sequels or not even make enough to allow Shyamalan to Super–Size his next fast–food order. The answer, I suppose, rests on how many parents will be dropping their children off at the multiplexes to catch a matinee. Because unlike most of the family–friendly films of today (especially those from Pixar), The Last Airbender has nothing to offer adults – this is strictly kid stuff all the way. That may not be the case with the source material, which has been enjoyed by viewers of all ages, but it’s unlikely anything here – beyond some of the special effects – will capture the imagination of anyone over 12. Those effects are occasionally excellent, and they’re the only things that provide any pulse to an otherwise poorly executed story of how one young lad, Aang (Noah Ringer), proves to be the only person in his world with the ability to control all four elements of air, water, fire and earth. His leadership is needed as the Fire Nation wages an all–out war against the other tribes; in order to restore balance and save countless lives (including his own), he teams up with Waterbender Katara (Nicola Peltz) and her brother Sokka (Jackson Rathbone, doing double duty since he’s also playing Jasper in the Twilight series). Shyamalan’s habit of giving himself choice roles in his own projects – which wouldn’t be a problem if he could, you know, act – mercifully ends here, since he’s nowhere to be seen on screen (of course, if someone needed to bend some hot air, he would have been perfectly cast). But focusing less on his thespian aspirations hasn’t helped his writing or directing prowess, since The Last Airbender is a clunky, soporific undertaking punctuated by some truly cringe–worthy dialogue. Then again, maybe it’s a good thing pearls of prose

weren’t wasted on this lackluster cast. No one fails to make an impression: Even Dev Patel, so charismatic as the Slumdog Millionaire, comes across as a colorless novice in his role as Prince Zuko. Like everyone else in this dud centered around the elements, he’s clearly out of his.

the inexplicably popular Big Daddy a decade ago, Grown Ups marks the umpteenth collaboration between the comedian and director Dennis Dugan. Dugan is to screen comedy what the atomic bomb was to Nagasaki, and with this film, he and the ostensible writers (Sandler and Fred Wolf) serve up a mirthless affair in which the only people laughing are the ones on screen. In fact, that’s basically the plot of the movie: As five school chums reunite 30 years later to honor the passing of their former coach, Lenny (Sandler) makes a bad joke and the others laugh. Then Eric (Kevin James) makes a bad joke and the others laugh. And so on through Kurt (Chris Rock), Marcus (David Spade) and Rob (Rob Schneider). As they’re laughing, those of us in the audience are cringing, whether it’s because of the scene in which Eric pees on Marcus’ back, or because Marcus lands face–first (twice!) into a pile of fecal matter, or because Marcus thinks he might have had drunken intercourse with a dog, or because Rob’s wife (Joyce Van Patten) is an elderly woman who enjoys sex (the film forcefully pushes the notion that old people and ugly people are only put on this planet for the amusement of past–their–prime comedians of varying skills). The most talented performers in the film, Salma Hayek, Maria Bello and Maya Rudolph, are wasted in their roles as The Three Walking Sets of Breasts – excuse me, the wives of Sandler, James and Rock, respectively (in arrested–development movies like these, nerdy schlubs always have hot wives).

TOY STORY 3 Threepeats may be rare in the sports world, but they’re even harder to

achieve in the cinematic realm. Yet here comes Toy Story 3, bucking the odds and satisfying sky–high expectations to emerge as the perfect final chapter in a trilogy that’s guaranteed to live on for generations (to infinity and beyond?) In this outing, Andy is set to go to college and has to decide what to do with the few remaining toys from his childhood, all stuck in a box that has been gathering dust under his bed for years. Luckily for us, Andy’s favorites are our favorites, so rest assured that all of the series regulars are back, including Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks), Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) and Jessie (Joan Cusack). But the first heart–tugging moment comes when we learn that Woody’s sweetheart, Bo Peep, is “no longer with us” – audiences had best brace themselves for plenty more eye–moistening incidents. Through miscommunication, the gang ends up at a day care center, where the toy–in–charge, Lots–o’–Huggin’ Bear (Ned Beatty), promises them a playhouse paradise. But things aren’t quite what they seem, and Woody, ever loyal to Andy no matter the cost to his own future, plots a great escape. In true Toy Story fashion, this allows plenty of

opportunities for Buzz to display his heroism, Jessie to show off her spunk, Rex (Wallace Shawn) to bemoan his lot in life, and Mr. Potato Head (Don Rickles) and Hamm (John Ratzenberger) to let fly with the sarcastic remarks. Toy Story 3 may look like a family film, but as it tackles issues of loss, identity and self–worth, it reveals itself as the most adult movie out there.

THE A–TEAM The film is of course based on the wildly popular TV series that aired during the middle stretch of the 1980s (’83–’87, to be exact). The series was, let’s be honest, crapola, a cheesy crash ‘n’ smash rally that often played like The Dukes of Hazzard stripped of the hick accents. Its appeal largely came from its colorful characters: the brainy Hannibal, the suave Face, the nutty Murdock and the imposing “B.A.” Baracus. This new film is occasionally cheesy in its own way, but it’s also far smarter than the series ever was.

THE KARATE KID The Karate Kid turns out to be a pleasant enough surprise. To be sure, there’s absolutely no area in which it improves on the original, yet the basic plot remains durable enough that there’s no harm done by this easy–to–take update. Jaden Smith plays Dre Parker, who’s forced to move from his Detroit home when his single mom (Taraji P. Henson) lands a job in Beijing. Dre catches the eye of a cute schoolmate (Wenwen Han), but most of the time, he’s being beaten to a pulp by a local bully (Zhenwei Wang) and his sycophants, a situation that leads Dre to despise his new surroundings. But just as he resigns himself to a childhood full of bruised ribs and black eyes, he learns that his building’s maintenance man, Mr. Han (Jackie Chan), is actually a kung fu expert. Realizing that the boy needs to protect himself, Mr. Han sets about training his young charge.

Get Him to the Greek Not as ambitious or accomplished as Forgetting Sarah Marshall (both were directed by Nicholas Stoller and produced by Judd Apatow), this is a shaggy tale containing a fair number of jokes that miss their intended targets by a wide berth. But the bits that do work are comic gold. Reprising his Forgetting role, Russell Brand again plays rock star Aldous Snow, whose popularity has chilled following the release of African Child, an album (and title track) so disastrously received that critics claim it’s the worst

thing to ever happen to Africa next to war, famine and apartheid. Now a drunken lout, Aldous is still idolized by record label flunky Aaron Green (Jonah Hill), who convinces his boss Sergio (an animated Sean “P. Diddy” Combs) that the fallen rocker is primed for a comeback concert. Sergio agrees and sends Aaron to collect Aldous in London and bring him back to L.A. Of course, nothing goes as planned, with Aldous proving to be a difficult client and Aaron having his hands full trying to keep the celebrity out of trouble. cs

SHREK FOREVER AFTER The Shrek series now stands at 2–2 thanks to the latest addition to the cartoon canon. After the first two entertaining (if wildly overrated) installments made enough money to seemingly feed and clothe the entire U.S. population, the filmmakers opted to give us a pair of desperate lunges at more filthy lucre. Shrek Forever After is at least an improvement over Shrek the Third, but it’s not enough of a step up to revitalize the ailing franchise. This entry gives us a Shrek (Mike Myers) who’s none too happy with his domesticated lot in life. Feeling stifled by his family – wife Fiona (Cameron Diaz) and three infants – and longing for the days when he was hated and feared by everyone around him, he ends up signing a contract whipped up by the devious Rumpelstiltskin (Walt Dohrn), one that leads to an alternate reality in which Shrek never existed. Thus, Rumpelstiltskin rules the kingdom, Fiona is a resistance fighter, Donkey (Eddie Murphy) is an unwilling servant to the witches that serve as Rumpelstiltkin’s enforcers, and Puss in Boots (Antonio Banderas) has grown lazy and fat. Living on the contract’s borrowed time, Shrek has less than 24 hours to make everything right. Little kids will lap this up with the same zeal as Donkey digging into a stack of his beloved waffles, but adults will find nothing new here. cs

movies

Iraq war participants rather than Vietnam War vets, but the basic thrust remains the same: Wrongly accused and convicted for following orders they cannot prove were ever issued, the men bust out of jail and set about clearing their names. As in the series, Hannibal (Liam Neeson) always has a plan or two brewing, Face (Bradley Cooper) is irresistible to the ladies (Jessica Biel co–stars as an army captain who once dated Face), and the otherwise brave B.A. (wrestler Quinton “Rampage” Jackson) is scared to death whenever he’s forced to board a plane being flown by the crazy Murdock (District 9’s Sharlto Copley). As B.A. Baracus Jackson isn’t nearly as memorable as TV’s Mr. T, but in the case of the other three actors, they’re actually improvements over their small–screen counterparts.

“Sum Sudoku” Put one digit from 1-9 in each square of this Sudoku so that the following three conditions are met: 1) each row, column, and 3x3 box (as marked by shading in the grid) contains the digits 1–9 exactly one time; 2) no digit is repeated within any of the areas marked off by heavy black lines; and 3) the sums of the numbers in each area marked off by heavy black lines total the little number given in each of those areas. For example, the digits in the upper-rightmost square in the grid and the square directly to its left will add up to 12. Now quit wastin’ my time and solve!!! psychosudoku@hotmail.com

Fibromyalgia support group

ARIES

(March 21–April 19) “Thou shalt not kill” is a crucial rule for you to follow, and not just in the literal sense. According to my reading of the astrological omens, you should also be extra vigilant as you avoid more metaphorical kinds of destruction. Please be careful not to unleash ill–chosen words that would crush someone’s spirit (including your own). Don’t douse newly kindled fires, don’t burn recently built bridges, and don’t deprive fresh sprouts of the light they need to keep growing. To put this all in a more positive frame: It’s time for you to engage in a reverent and boisterous celebration of life, nurturing and fostering and stimulating everywhere you go.

TAURUS

(April 20–May 20) The baseball game was over. TV announcer Mike Krukow was describing the “ugly victory” that the San Francisco Giants had just achieved. The team’s efforts were sloppy and chaotic, he said, and yet the win counted just as much as a more elegant triumph. He ended with a flourish: “No one wants to hear about the labor pains; they just want to see the baby.” That’s my message to you this week, Taurus. All that matters is that you get the job done. It doesn’t matter whether you look good doing it.

GEMINI

(May 21–June 20) Here’s the really good news: CIA director Leon Panetta says there are fewer than 100 Al–Qaeda combatants in Afghanistan. Here’s the utterly confusing news: The U.S has over 94,000 highly trained human beings in Afghanistan whose express purpose is to destroy Al–Qaeda. I bring this up as a prod to get you to question your own allotment of martial force, Gemini. You definitely need to make sure you have a lavish reserve of fighting spirit primed to serve your highest goals. Just make sure, please, that it’s pointed in the right direction.

CANCER

(June 21–July 22) “Give us this day our daily hunger,” prayed French philosopher Gaston Bachelard. It was his personal variation on the “Give us this day our daily bread” line from the Lord’s Prayer. I suggest you

use his formulation as your own in the coming week, Cancerian. It’s the high season for your holy desires: a time when your mental and physical health will thrive as you tune in to and express your strongest, most righteous longings.

natural wonder might do the trick, or some exalted architecture, or the biography of a superb human being, or works of art or music that make you sob with cathartic joy. For extra credit, put yourself in the path of all the above.

LEO

(Oct. 23–Nov. 21)

(July 23–Aug. 22) In a recent horoscope, I wrote about Christopher Owens, lead singer of the band Girls, and how he wore pajama bottoms during a show he did in San Francisco. A reader named Eric was disgusted by this, seeing it as evidence that Owens is a self–indulgent hipster. “Just another spoiled trust–fund kid,” he said in his email, “whose excessively privileged life has given him the delusion that he’s uninhibited.” With a little research, Eric would have found the truth: Owens was raised in an abusive religious cult by a single mother who worked as a prostitute to earn a meager living. I bring this to your attention in hopes it will inspire you to avoid making any assumptions about anyone. More than ever before, it’s crucial that you bring a beginner’s mind to your evaluations of other human beings.

SCORPIO

In a favorable review of Badger Mountain Riesling wine, Winelibrary.com said, “The sweet succulent aromas of bosc pears are woven with lilacs and just a hint of petrol.” Meanwhile, Allure magazine named S cr tions Magnifique as one of the top five sexiest perfumes in the world, even though its fragrance is like “floral bilge.” Petrol? Bilge? Both commentaries seem to suggest that greatness may contain a taint –– or even that the very nature of greatness may require it to have a trace of something offensive. I’m guessing that’ll be a theme for you in the coming week.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22–Dec. 21)

I want to see your willpower surge and throb and carry you to a ringing triumph in the next two weeks, Virgo. I hope to be cheering you on as you complete a plucky effort to overcome some long–standing obstacle . . . as you put the finishing touches on an epic struggle to defeat a seemingly intractable foe . . . as you rise up with a herculean flourish and put the stamp of your uniqueness on a success that will last a long time.

During the grace period you’re currently enjoying, you have a talent for tuning in to the raw potential of whatever situation is right in front of you; you just naturally know how to establish rapport with circumstances you’ve never seen before. That’s why your spontaneous urges are likely to generate fun learning experiences, not awkward messes. You’ll thrive as you improvise adeptly with volatile forces. It may therefore seem like your progress will be easy, even a bit magical. Some people may regard your breakthroughs as unearned. But you and I will know that you’re merely harvesting the benefits that come from a long period of honing your powers.

LIBRA

CAPRICORN

The Italian word terribilit was originally used by art critics to describe the sculptures and paintings of Michelangelo. According to various dictionaries, it refers to “a sense of awe–inspiring grandeur,” “the sublime mixed with amazement,” or “an astonishing creation that provokes reverent humility.” In my astrological opinion, terribilit is a prerequisite for the next chapter of your life story. You need be flabbergasted by stunning beauty. Where can you go to get it? A

A few single friends of mine use the dating site OkCupid to meet potential lovers. One woman got the following notice: “We are pleased to report that you are in the top half of OkCupid’s most attractive users. How can we say this with confidence? Because we’ve tracked click–thrus on your photo and analyzed other people’s reactions to you . . . Your new elite status comes with one important privilege: You will now see more attractive people in your match results. Also! You’ll be shown to

VIRGO

(Aug. 23–Sept. 22)

(Sept. 23–Oct. 22)

(Dec. 22–Jan. 19)

more attractive people in their match results. And, no, we didn’t send this email to everyone on OkCupid. Go ask an ugly friend.” According to my analysis of the astrological omens, Capricorn, you will soon receive a metaphorically comparable message, not from OkCupid, but from the universe itself.

AQUARIUS

(Jan. 20–Feb. 18) The liberation movement kindled in the 1960s wasn’t all fun and games. It ushered in expansive new ways of thinking about gender, race, sexuality, spirituality, music, and consciousness itself, but it was fueled by anger as well as by the longing for pleasure and meaning and transcendence. A key focus of the rage was opposition to the Vietnam War. The adrenaline stirred by anti–war protests was an instrumental part of the mix that propelled the entire era’s push for freedom. I’m hoping that the oil hemorrhage in the Gulf of Mexico will become a similar beacon in the next ten years. Can you think of a comparable prod in your personal life, Aquarius? A gnawing injustice that will help awaken and feed your irresistible drive to emancipate yourself?

PISCES

(Feb. 19–March 20) Here’s a thought from Piscean poet W.H. Auden: “The image of myself which I try to create in my own mind in order that I may love myself is very different from the image which I try to create in the minds of others in order that they may love me.” If what Auden describes is true for you, I suggest you try this experiment: Merge the two images; see if you can make them the same. You’re entering a phase in your cycle when you will have a tremendous opportunity to unify the inner and outer parts of your life. (And if Auden’s description is not true for you, congratulations: You are either an enlightened saint or well on your way to becoming one.)
