Clay Bennett Has Already Lost. He Just Doesn’t Know It Yet.

posted by on June 9 at 14:49 PM

I guess that letter from our attorney worked after all:

U.S. District Court Judge Marsha Pechman issued a handful of rulings in favor of Clay Bennett’s lawyers on Monday, one week before the opening of the city of Seattle’s trial with the Sonics.

Of six pretrial motions filed by the two sides, the city succeeded only in allowing author Sherman Alexie to be included on its extensive list of potential witnesses.

The Sonics Death Watch cannot be stopped!

They needed legal the very second they hired the amazing Adrian! Ryan.

Maybe we should make your statue idea a bit broader, maybe a guy jamming pencils into his eye sockets or something? That way it could serve as a monument to ALL of our unreadably bad writers, and we wouldn't have to commission a separate piece for Mudede.

Let's hope recent reactions to my yelling at Seattle City Hall today, Tom Carr's assistant Attorney Tom and Tim Burgess's assistant.... when I was again requesting help with and from the city.... this time about 9-11 Media Arts, SIFF, and the burning of the Texas Govenors Mansion.... don't all link the death ray from hell on the site they may want to put Shermans Statue at.....

Please tell Jen Graves I'm still not sure what to do withlive girls theater and Circus Tracks....

I'm wondering...
( what's he wondering???!!!)>{echoes of mephistophe-lees}

If it has something to do with the fact that the poster child looks....

JUST LIKE MY DAUGHTER EMILY pre-pubesanc face...

and the FUN HOUSE SHOW coming up with


...and my other daughter Melody's sad clown face halloween costume ....

and Harry Schneider's look-a-like picture on the Seattle Post Intelligencer's Tuesday May 27, 2008 front page article.

There... I have mentioned my family, and not someone elses and somebody knows why.

Bryan Crawford... If I can meet up with you about our music and Low Earth Orbiter can your sticks still kick ass like your Karate Chops can break wind pipes?

...working to bring you more consistant analysis...

Then again, this danielbennettkieneker fellow makes some good points...

Keep this up, danielbennettkieneker, and I'm going to tell Richard Lee that you killed Kurt Cobain.

@5 ... you need to read "the lone ranger and tonto fistfight in heaven." then you will realize the silliness of your ways.

It's because I HAVE read so much of Alexie's work that I am able to so confidently proclaim him to be an overrated waste of pulp. People kept telling me how great he was, so I kept digging for that pony.
