This Week in The Stranger

Erica C. Barnett on Seven Reasons to Fear Dino Rossi
“Rossi doesn’t just oppose abortion rights. He opposes all reproductive rights—from students’ right to learn the facts about pregnancy, STDs, and birth control, to women’s right to buy contraceptives with a prescription. Rossi opposes requiring pharmacies to stock emergency contraception, which works by preventing fertilization, because some pharmacists assert, falsely, that it causes abortions. How trivial does Rossi consider women’s right to emergency contraception? On one occasion, he compared requiring pharmacies to dispense the medication to ‘forcing Safeway to carry my favorite brand of sport drink’…”

John McCain Refuses to Make Eye Contact—Again!
“Republican presidential nominee John McCain, reeling from widespread accusations of racial bias following the presidential debate last Friday, has made matters worse by slighting one of America’s best respected bands.”

Jen Graves Reviews the Art at Harborview
“Early on a bright morning last week, the intensive-care waiting area was messy with slept-in makeshift beds of hospital-issue pillows and blankets spread on couches. An older woman held her head in her hands on one side of the room; across it a red-eyed younger woman told a phone, ‘She died last night.’ The art in here is by Anne Appleby, a Montana artist who paints dusty colored panels that seem to have light inside them. Three tall paintings in an almost alien yellow-green hue hang at one end of the waiting room…”

Joan Hiller Goes Searching for the the Best Sloppy, Simple, Completely Delicious Enchiladas
“Structurally, the cheese enchilada has three main components: the tortilla, the delicious cheese guts, and—most importantly—the sauce. You screw up the sauce and the whole thing goes to shit. The sauce is the glue that holds the enchilada world together, the spicy ocean in which the tortillas with their bellyfuls of cheese swim.”

Sean Nelson on Kinky French Film A Girl Cut in Two
“The affair is an exercise in light depravity and consensual abasement: He directs her to give him head under the desk as he does his morning writing; she surprises him (on her birthday) by crawling into the room almost naked, on all fours, with fanned-out peacock feathers sticking out of her ass. Ah, love. The thing is, she’s super into it and into him—she feels neither embarrassed nor ridiculous.”

ALSO IN THIS ISSUE: the terrifying mannequin in the ladies room at the Buck; a news story about renters benefiting mightily from the home foreclosure crisis; Larry Mizell Jr. on local hiphop producer Jake One; an interview with David Berman; Paul Constant on two new political novels; lots of new film reviews; three new theater reviews; and all the usual columns and calendars.

Is that cover photo a pic of Levi Johnston, Sarah Pailin's son-in-law-to-be?

Any chance one of you ladies could share the weirdness in the Buck via a photograph, for those of us with the wrong dangly bits?

IDGI....Erica says "Pick up a copy of the Stranger. Instead of our usual front cover, you’ll find a voter registration form. "

Is it on the inside, then? I haven't picked up my actual tangible copy yet
