Saturday, May 1, 1909 La Crosse Tribune While driving along the 1500 block of Avon Street yesterday about 3 p.m., a team of horses pulling a beer delivery wagon belonging to the Bartl Brewery became frightened at an explosion under the wagon and ran away. The explosion was a severe one, causing the heavy wagon to tip over and breaking the horses loose. The driver gamely hung on to the reins, and after being dragged about a block he succeeded in bringing the frightened horses to a stop. An investigation of the affair revealed that a bomb in the street had exploded after being run over by the wheels of the heavy wagon. Whether the bomb was put there purposely is not known, but in the opinion of a prominent northside saloon owner, it was spite work on the park of a few rank prohibitionists. He stated in an interview that Avon Street is in a ward containing many anti-saloon men and he thought that they had taken it upon themselves to destroy a large quantity of liquor which they thought would be on the wagon. As it was, the wagon contained only a few kegs of bock beer, which were not damaged. The more conservative saloon element, however, do not think that the prohibitionists would adopt such radically extreme measures.

Consuming ourselves into the hole. By Joel Kuennen CONSUME! This is what our government tells us every time an economic slow down comes-a-knockin'. Most would agree that the economy is slower than before and the economic environment around us will not be as forgiving as in previous years. Arguably, we're in quite the pickle. Some say it's because competition in developing nations has grown, others because of rising energy prices and an inexplicable world-wide food crisis — though what's inexplicable about this is not that it's occurring but that it's actually now been named a "crisis." While all these explanations for the worsening of the American economy are important factors, they ignore one fundamental flaw in our economic rationale. CONSUME! The form of capitalism followed by the United States thrives on one simple principle, that an individual act of consumption will result in the development of secondary and tertiary services, allowing for increased amounts of abstract capital. The genius of this system is that it can triple the value of an economy without increasing the raw resources available to that economy. This means primary, secondary and tertiary businesses which provide everything from raw material (cow for beef), to packaging (the Styrofoam container and the napkin companies) to appropriate services (garbage truck to haul away excess) find it conducive to over-produce their goods, allowing for "product loss" to become one of the conditions of


business. In crass brevity, the more waste, the better for all. Therefore, policy makers believe that to stimulate a sluggish economy, all they need do is throw some cash into the consumer cycle. That way, all levels of the economy will feel a small but needed increase in sales, in turn boosting consumer confidence for the next eight months. After which time, some analysts believe our economy will correct itself. US capitalism, however, has been in an interesting era of consumption, one where levels of production far exceed that of consumption, and because of this/in support of this we have become a throw-away economy. This allows for the increased development of secondary and tertiary service industries in a classic "bubble effect." There is no real need for the service, however, because of the wastefulness of our economic habits they can be supported nontheless.This also results in the over-production of throw-away items — goods that are cheaply made, and quickly replaceable. Enter, "negative savings." Houshold's spent .5 percent more than they earned in 2005, resulting in the newly coined phenomenon of "negative savings." A negative savings rate hasn't been seen by this country since the Great Depression. Some economists (excluding Allen Greenspan, the last Fed Chairman) point to the varied ways Americans "save," i.e.: stocks, bonds, securities speculation which aren't traditionally tallied in the Saving's Index, as the reason behind the negative saving statistics. However, as we can see this is directly due to the over-com-

modification of capital. By that, I mean all that "abstract capital" produced by secondary and tertiary businesses is being consumed by the public as throw-away goods. The simple fact is that we spend more of our income on consumables and "junkables" than we ever have before. Again, as Capitalism advances into old-age, its base of capital is coming from the overproduction of goods and the services that surround it. This "government bribe," as some have called it, of $300 or $600 is nothing significant in the game of capital and will be saved by no one. Bush wasn't intending for people to save it

though, if that were the case he could have put the money towards our future directly by setting aside a Social Security trust fund. Sadly, this type of social liberalism mixed with fiscal conservatism which succeeded in supporting so many millions of Americans throughout the last century has all but disappeared from the political consciousness. In the end, this "economic crisis" will fizzle out, our economy will adapt and let's hope that we do it, not only with the basic self-interest charaterized by American capitalism, but with an awareness and flexibility due to our great economy. Oh, and SAVE!

Q&A with the Pizza Delivery Guy

Our Income

SS: Have you always had that, or is this in response to the raised gas prices? CW: When I first started two and a half years ago it was 75 cents that Jeff and Jim’s paid us. We had free delivery. They raised that about a year ago to a dollar, and that was the delivery charge so the customer was paying it. And then just a couple months ago they raised it again to $1.50 because of the increase in prices. SS: Gas now is more expensive than it’s ever been. Is that hitting you in your pocketbook? CW: Oh, definitely. I’ve noticed a big change. There’s a lot more money going into my gas tank and a lot less into my pocket, for sure.

Martini of the Week

SS: Do you think the customers realize this when you bring a pizza to their door?

Beeline Martini

CW: Umm, some of them might realize it. I know I’ve had customers give me a lot of extra money and be like “Hey, go get some gas. I know it’s high.” The majority, I’d say, don’t really realize it because they’re not driving around every day like we are.

monday-friday - $3 By Adam Bissen

Now open Tuesdays! Closed Sundays. HAPPY HOUR Monday - Friday, 4-7 Sure, increased gas prices are making your commute to work more expensive, but what if your entire job involved commuting around town? Chris Wilke, a 22-year-old manager and delivery driver for Jeff and Jim’s Pizza, spends his nights crisscrossing the city and has noticed his paycheck burning down with every mile. He told Second Supper all about it in under 20 minutes.

SS: How do you feel when you walk away from a house when you’ve been slighted like that?

Chris Wilke: On an average night probably about 50 to 60 miles, and most drivers work three to four nights per week.

CW: Not very happy, obviously. I don’t know, tipping is not mandatory by any means, but people do need to realize that it’s our job and we’re putting the gas in our car. It’s hard for us to make up for that.

CW: We do have a $1.50 delivery charge for each delivery we take, so that goes right into our pocket for gas compensation.

Great Study Environment right across from Onalaska High!

CW: Um, yeah, lately. I don’t know if it’s because of the high gases prices or just the economy in general but tips have gone down a lot, probably cut in half, my tips anyway. I used to average three, four dollars a delivery. The last couple weeks I’ve worked it’s been a dollar, two dollars per delivery.

Second Supper: How much does a typical delivery driver drive per week?

SS: Does Jeff or Jim reimburse for any of that?

ireless Free W et! Intern ig Ten B NFL, rk! Netwo

SS: So some people realize gas is more expensive. Have there been any changes in the opposite direction, where people tip you less?

SS: What’s the best tip you’ve ever got?

A mediated fellow.

By Brett Emerson In March, I scored a pretty good chunk of tax return money from the government honey pots. This time, I resolved not to blow it on expensive distractions, as I historically have done with my springtime loot. In making this decision I was religiously grateful that I have more or less ended my lifelong crackbaby relationship with video games. The government may bring its public service announcement wrath upon heroin and ecstasy and methamphetamines, but it’s becoming increasingly rare to hear people warn against the sublime perils and similar addictions of Final Fantasy. As a high school student, my limited cash flow required my gaming tendencies to remain old school. My raids on the local pawn shops did little harm to my well-being. Soon after I got a job and began to make my own money, this changed. Suddenly, I was drowning in a PlayStation flood, spending whatever money that didn’t go toward rent or bills on games. Most of my acquisitions sucked. Worse, I knew it, even while buying them. I’d walk out of Best Buy with some B-list Game Boy title, get into my car, stare at the package, and wonder what the hell I had just done. But I’d still take it home, and play it through the end, losing not only 30 bucks but also a week of my life. All the drugs in the world couldn’t screw me up this badly. Since I’ve made a conscious effort to purge many such compulsions from my day to day nonsense (I’m still working on the Internet), my life is a little less paycheck to paycheck and much more prepared for random financial calamity. I’m sure my parents approve. This growing foresight has already paid off in one significant dividend. After the Hanson rock fiesta, I came home and discovered that my computer wouldn’t start. Start. Reset. Start. Reset. Shit. I had already guessed that a replacement for this dinosaur would likely factor into my near future. If I hadn’t become a writer with weekly deadlines, I might not have cared. Being without a computer wouldn’t have killed me. But now there was work to be done, albums to be reviewed, Benjamin Clark Adventures to chronicle in high, drunken prose! A glorified


word processor was no longer a vestigial accessory of my modern jet-setting lifestyle; it had become much closer to vital. Somehow, I managed what could be the most financially responsible act of my life. My former computer righted itself the next day and squeezed out a few final weeks of life, giving me a small window of time to avoid making a half-cocked purchase. (You never want to wind up with a Wal-Mart computer.) After I spent an unusually level-headed period in deliberation, my computer took its permanent silicon dirt nap.The next day, I walked into Best Buy and dropped nine Franklins like I was Rich Uncle Pennybags. Because I hadn’t blown my tax money and was prepared, it didn’t hurt a bit. Such events are rare. We’re conditioned to need, obscenely beyond our actual requirements, often beyond a rational expectation of luxury. People don’t often speak of “wanting” the dangly stick carrots – you don’t get what you want, if you only want it. No, we “need” 80 gig iPods, PlayStation 3s, Don Knotts film collections on Blu-Ray. Ours is a culture that walks a tightrope slicked in bullshit, strapped between blatant gimme gimme and the illusion of modesty. The word “need” is a vital tool in this deception. Kids throwing tantrums get it. We used to hustle our parents into giving us more worthless crap than we had use for, providing a Samaritan ego boost in return. In the end, Mom and Dad felt as though they were paying for a heart transplant, not some molded plastic turd that won’t hold our attention for a week.As adults, we’ve so internalized this childish desperation to the point where we need no one but ourselves in order to be con men. The next hundred dollar outfit I buy will save my life, and I’ll never buy another thing as long as I live. Right. Though induced need has always been a problem, it has been significantly mutated and fatally accelerated by modern commerce’s fixation on constant, unending upgrade (which is why I stuck to console gaming). Every new technology is now rendered obsolete before it comes out of the box. How can any sense of satisfaction be possible? Even the oft-praised advent of music piracy is one more step into the muck of the nihilism of need – proving that you don’t have to pay for something to be trapped by it. In fact, the lack of cost in piracy makes the process more compulsive, more hopeless. The current state is goddamn depressing, but there is a remedy. Slow down! If you can’t enjoy what you have, why get it at all? Rock that LCD iPod. Break out your old clothes. Punch Soda Popinski in his shriveled pink nuts, NES style. Go outside. Play with your friends. Stop worrying. You know what I’m going to do with my economic surplus check? I’m going to put it into my bank account, where it’s going to stay until I use it for rent. I might buy a few books, fill up my gas tank, pick up some groceries, maybe work on my car. With the time I save in not obtaining the same old crap all over again, I’m going to read. And (kind of) sing. And write. Because that’s what I need.

DELIVERY GUY, from page 6 CW: Best tip I’ve ever got? Um, I’ve gotten a couple $10 tips, I think a $15 tip one time. But those are mostly when we’re delivering to the hotels and it’s some out-of-towner that comes in. SS: They’re used to paying that. CW:Yeah, they’re used to paying for that, and they think we have cheap prices so they appreciate it. SS: Do you ever show up to a couple voluptuous blondes in nightgowns, like all those movies I used to watch in high school? CW: [nervous laughter] Uh, no, not really. SS: Any cool non-monetary tips? CW:Yeah, a few. There’s always people offering me beer and things. I actually got a couple lottery tickets, scratch-offs, too. They were already scratched off so I knew they were winners, so it wasn’t a guessing situation. That’s just kind of weird. SS: How do you make a pizza delivery guy’s day? CW: Well, just be nice and understand that they’re driving around and appreciate what they’re doing for you. They’re doing you a favor. You don’t have to leave your house, so just appreciate what they’re doing.

Reviews - your guide to consumption Oberon Ale Bell’s Brewing Company Kalamazoo, Michigan I know some people whose summers can’t start until they sip their first Oberon.There are worse ways to mark the passing of seasons, I suppose (and it’s reinforced every time I watch the Milwaukee Brewers wilt away like a September geranium). Seeing that iconic orange label on grocers’ shelves always reminds me that there will be good times up around the bend. No matter that I actually dislike summer beers — and summer wheats in particular — I’m never disappointed when someone passes me an Oberon. The beer pours Ratings: a rich straw color, and enticing par8.5 of 10 ticles of wheat and 7 of 10 yeast float in the brew, rare from 7 of 10 an American mass brewer but always 7 of 10 appreciated. It’s a 8 of 10 highly carbonated beer with a thick, Total: foamy head— and if you want it to stick 37.5 of 50 around for a while keep your lemon

Jamaican Spiced Rum $12.00 / lbs. at the Briar Patch

wedges out; this beer’s so good it doesn’t need anything else mucking up the taste. Seeing all the bubbles rise up the glass, I’m struck by how much it resembles ginger ale. Like most Witbiers, Oberon has a citrus-y odor, but it doesn’t taste excessively fruity.This is an American pale wheat ale, which is the Americanized version of the lauded Hefe Weizen. Thankfully Bell’s doesn’t succumb to typical Yankee excess. It’s not exceedingly sweet like Leinenkugel’s Sunset Wheat or “lite” like its Summer Shandy.The Oberon spreads across the tongue evenly and warms the mouth with a nice malt balance, while the generous yeast content makes this a much more flavorful beer than other summer wheats. As if to accentuate its differences from other warm-weather beers, the Oberon has a vaguely grassy aftertaste, reminiscent of a Pilsner, but it finishes clean and doesn’t cloy to the mouth. Enjoy a few bottles with your Memorial Day grill out. I could also recommend it every time you finish mowing the grass. — Adam Bissen

Ahoy wenches & scallywaggers! Prepare yourselves for the ambrosia o'even ye scum o'the sea. Arg... That's all the pirate I got, but this Jamaican Rum Spice, a fullbodied peaberry, with a semidark complexion can shiver my timbers any morning. Jamaican Spiced Rum is always a treat, weather it be in a truffle, ice cream or on the rocks. Rum is a liquor derived from the fermentation of sugar cane and most importantly, boiled down sugar cane, or molasses. Spiced Rum is made when cinnamon and more molasses (sometimes caramel) are added to the fermentation process. This mimicry of the Caribbean classic provides a good opportunity to distinguish the flavors. At once, it's a rich, full-bodied cup with a darkly-sweet molasses prominence, yet to add some levity, tinges of cinnamon float about your senses. The aroma of this coffee reminds me of crimson wood from the tropics, that hint of cinnamon car-

rying the "tropical" aspect a long way. The gulp is luxurious, refreshing and rewarding, coating your throat in a dark molasses-like drink. This brew is also highly drinkable for long periods of time. This is often the test for a good cup, "How many cups until you can't stand it anymore?" This brew passes the test plus more. So go ahead, start your day with a cup of Spiced Jamaican Rum coffee , after your first drink, you'll see palm fronds spread over your head, your shoes will dissolve into thin air and your body will slowly sink into sun-warmed sand. A fantastic hallucination to have, especially in these quasitropical months. — Joel Kuennen


Bibliophile Ric Flair: To Be the Man by Ric Flair, Keith Elliot Greenberg, and Mark Madden Ah, summertime, a time to relax with some light reading while soaking up some sun. Enough with all those deep novels that make you ponder the existence of human nature, summer reading is all about moot points concerning small affairs of the ever shrinking flesh that require little brainpower. Or even better, escapism, with the chance to live vicariously through a character far more glamorous than yourself. And as far as I am concerned, nothing could make your mind work less than reading the stories of one of professional wrestling’s greatest showmen ever. I originally grabbed this book off the library shelf for the irony factor, but little did I suspect I would be sucked in by the man dramas that exist behind the scenes in the world of wrestling. It's got it all; drinking, drugs, womanizing, ass kicking, getting paid, getting laid and all while styling and profiling. It’s pure macho emotions, unfiltered by the intellect, and bolstered by unnaturally high levels of testosterone. If Bukowski were to loose about 50 IQ points and get all hopped up on 'roids, this is the book he’d have written. For those not in the know, Nature Boy Ric Flair is a feathered helmet of platinum blonde hair with a face that resembles a donkey. In the ring, he thrilled audiences for years and was involved in headliner matches on the biggest tickets, holding the title more than anybody else. He wrestled all the big names and constantly gave the crowd their money’s worth. When he gives interviews on wrestling shows, it is long-winded shouting boasts full of his personal catch phrases that leave his face a shade of crimson with eyes bulging out of his head and veins throbbing in his neck. Such intensity! And Mr. Flair effectively captures that intensity in the pages of his book. This book is also a gossipy tell all of a who’s who in professional wrestling over the past 30 plus years. Bring on some trash talking! If you need a book to read at the beach that will be the perfect antidote to the obnoxious sight of overly muscled future gym teachers flinging balls around, then enter the macho mind of Ric Flair, I promise you won’t be disappointed. Woooo!!!

Film Reviews THE COUNTERFEITERS (FÄLSCHER, DIE) Director: Stefan Ruzowitzky Cast: Karl Markovics, August Diehl, Devid Striesow Writer: Stefan Ruzowitzky, based on the book by Adolf Burger By Nicholas Cabreza Ah, The Counterfeiters, an otherwise mediocre movie staking its claim to immortality by picking up the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. Presumably, the Academy awarded The Counterfeiters an Oscar because it's set during the Holocaust, but just because a film takes place during one of the most horrid times in human history, that doesn't make it any more powerful, emotional, tragic or any other adjective that should describe a film about the Holocaust. Despite its setting, a movie still has to work to earn its keep, and watching The Counterfeiters is the kind of numbing experience that leaves you feeling no more entertained than you were when you entered the theater. Telling the story of Operation Bernhard, the largest counterfeiting scheme in history, The Counterfeiters slides by on cruise control, hoping the audience's interest will escalate simply

Second Supper vol. 8, issue 116

because the heroes are Jews and the villains are Nazis. The film revolves around Salomon "Sally" Sorowitsch (Karl Markovics), an introvert and expert counterfeiter. He's captured, however, and winds up in the Sachsenhausen concentration camp, where he and dozens of other trade-skilled Jews, under Nazi command, work on replicating British bank notes, the influx of which would ruin the British economy. Sally's lethargic demeanor and unwillingness to work with fellow inmate Adolf Burger (upon whose memoir the film is based) in sabotaging the operation make it impossible to empathize with him. I wonder why the film didn't revolve around Burger, an expert counterfeiter himself, whose family was killed in Auschwitz, and who, still alive to this day, has lived with knowing that his family was killed while he was rewarded with warm food, a soft bed, and showers for cooperating with the Nazis. The Counterfeiters is less about redemption and survival and more about manipulation and cowardice. The final scene offers something for the audience to dwell on, but the film never feels anything more than average because, unlike Oskar Schindler, for example, protagonist Sally is someone who isn't willing to stand up and fight.

Cabin Boy (1993) Directed By: Adam Resnick Starring: Chris Elliott, Ritch Brinkley, Brian DoyleMurray, Andy Richter Written By: Adam Resnick Odds are that if a person knows who Chris Elliott is, it’s because of one of two things. The person may be an aging Generation X hipster who used to watch Elliott’s thirtysomething paperboy antics in the delightful Get a Life. But like most people, this person was probably just grossed out by Elliot’s little nub hand in the less delightful Scary Movie 2. I present here a third option, a triumph of buffoonery which easily trumps the latter and at the very least matches the former. With thinning hair and a full beard, Elliott plays an insipid, spoiled “Fancy Lad”, on his way home from the Fancy Lad

Academy. His Nathanial Mayweather begins as a schoolboy dick in a powdered wig who winds up on the wrong boat. It’s a piece of flotsam named The Filthy Whore, occupied by four salty old bastards and their gleefully moronic cabin boy (Andy Richter). Upon discovering the stowaway, the sailors set to debasing him, which only gets worse once he accidentally gets the cabin boy killed and lands The Filthy Whore in Hell’s Bucket. In this magical place, the crew encounters a glacial monster, a tobacco spitting flying cupcake, a Hindu virgin killer, and the most gentlemanly half-man, half-shark of all time – CHOCKIE! While evading the abuse of his crewmates (and making them fish stick kitties), the new cabin boy also develops a one-sided infatuation with a woman swimming around the world whom he pulled aboard against her will. At first Nathanial is all thumbs, boxing the air in frustration. But soon enough, he becomes a Cabin Man, and she gets all doeeyed and stupid. It’s a little hard to watch. The stylistic influence of Tim Burton slips through from time to time – which makes sense, as he was one of the producers. The comedy, however, is entirely unique. Andy Richter is hilarious here, and has the best line of the movie. “Your captain is in dire need of a holiday,” Nathaniel notes, to which Richter’s dimwit responds, “You mean like Halloween?” PRICELESS. The grimy old sailors are weird and glorious in their bleary-eyed mistreatment of the bratty cabin boy. And Elliott himself is perfectly miscast in the lead. This movie is true buried treasure. Where did Chris Elliott go?
