Avoid the eggshells

You can put your trust in Elaine Lite to vote the way she’s promised to vote once elected on Nov. 6 to City Council. You won’t have to sit on eggshells during a Council meeting and wonder whether she’ll vote to turn your neighborhood into a high-rise hell or let a Texas corporation put a curb cut and 23-story piece of Atlanta on Biltmore Avenue.

Elaine, the publisher of Critter magazine, is running for the people who already live here—not the developers who want to cash in on every square inch of undeveloped space in our city.

That’s why she’s got my vote (www.electelaine.org).

— Heather Rayburn

  1. I think Heather Rayburn should team up with the Davids every week and start one big “Vote Elaine Go Veggie” chain letter wankathon that can be covered by the Xpress.

    Thanks for helping shake out the flakes, Jason. Did you hear Mandala Freeborn’s question about anti-grafitti enforcement at City Council last night?

  3. I think it’s the food they DON’T eat, Jason. Now iffen they wanna be MOUNTAIN vegetarians and eat cornbread and pinto beans with wild onions, mabbe a mess of polk salad and some creasy greens mabbe I could respect them as vegetarians. Iffen they eats RAMPS, I’ll stand up and salute ’em (but not from downwind). But ANYBODY can eat tofu! That jest don’t get it. Real veggies don’t eat no fake food like tofu.

  4. MtnDow: What was aid about the anti-grafitti taskforce?

    And for the love of God, Ralph, please stop with the “I’m such a mountain-boy routine.” I find you ten-times mmore annoying than Bugg, and that is saying a lot.

  5. Well, thanks, Chuck! Please make sure Jason sees THAT, you’ve made my day. ;-)

    Huh, Jason? Huh? Huh? Chuck don’t like me more than he don’t like you.
