Ken Kesey is spinning in his grave

I CAN MAKE MONEY OFF MY UNCLE'S FAVORITE BAND BUT YOU CAN'T .... Kit "kashing in" Kesey.

Passing time in the makeshift vending village — which on Friday afternoon was inhabited by at least 200 people and dozens of dogs — is a tradition among many Deadheads and Furthur followers.

But officials with the Eugene police and parks departments and Kesey Enterprises, which manages the city-owned amphitheater, agreed to work to prevent anything from spinning out of control this weekend outside the venue.

“There’s only one way that you can vend in a park and that’s with a permit,” police Lt. Doug Mozan said.

Kit Kesey, president of Kesey Enterprises, cited both public safety and health concerns — such as selling alcohol and food without a license — as reasons why officials decided to take measures to deal with the parking lot crowds.

“We’re just trying to manage an event properly here,” Kesey said. “I know it’s been part of the culture for a long time, but an open-air vending market is not what we want to see.”

Yeah, I kind of pissed Zane Kesey off. He is calling me now.
I wish I was the headlight on a northbound train.

This is such bullshit.

FurtherFlower67 is there, and she mentioned dieing some shirts.

I don't think she could have brought to many on the plane.

Either way, hope she's OK, and having a blast regardless.

Its a shame because so many people rely on lot vending. Not just the vendors, the concert goers too. I always get my souvenirs on the lot. Its so much more genuine that way.
Let us all look kindly on our neighbor.

That is so #$%%ing pathetic! I read news reports around the country of children's lemonade stands being busted by the local police due to permit requirements -- even when the kids are on their own front lawn.

I urge someone to get their Kids to set up just a lemonade stand and see if Kesey -- the douchenozzle -- will have it busted because 'its' not what we want to see!"

Zane posted on Thursday that it was the band that was banning vending.I posted on his page the more that comes out on this it appears to be Kesey Incorporated that is behind the vending ban. This set him off. Once Furthur posted saying that it was the venue and the city I believed them.

How's it working out for you??


To be honest, I'm beginning to hate Obama as much as the wingnuts who accuse him of being a socialist-fascist secret-Muslim terrorist sympathizer hellbent on avenging the colonial atrocities inflicted upon his African tribal ancestors. These nutcases should love the guy. He is a quintessential instrument of the establishment.

In a familiar pattern, Obama caved in to Republicans yet again last week or so, this time reversing position on promises to set responsible air pollution standards -- you know, as recommended by scientists. I knew early on he was going to be a puppet of Wall Street -- his campaign financing ensured that -- but I at least expected him to throw progressives a bone on environmental policy. Instead, when you strip away the empty rhetoric, he's been every bit the industry shill as Bush. His handling of the BP oil spill was embarrassing, and he's done virtually nothing in regard to promoting alternative energy and addressing climate change. Instead, he's getting ready to approve a pipeline from the Canadian oil tar sands -- the second largest carbon store on the planet -- to US refineries. As a prominent NASA scientist put it, this is "game over" for any distant hopes of stabilizing the climate.

The extent of Obama's fealty to Wall Street has been stunning. In the latest debacle, his administration isn't batting an eye to new revelations of criminal practices at the Securities and Exchange Commission, where it has been revealed that the federal agency charged with regulating banks and financial institutions that wrecked the economy has been systematically destroying documents related to investigations of their corruption and malfeasance. Apparently this has been going on for years, and nobody gives shit. Incredible.

I can't figure Obama out. He doesn't stand for anything and has absolutely no backbone. Just seems like he's going through the motions, perfectly content to settle for whatever hopelessly compromised and disastrous "negotiation" he gets from the opposition. Given that he has continually alienated his supporters yet still has any hope of re-election is a sad testament to the sheer absurdity of the candidates favored by the Republican/Tea Party. Collectively, they're like some ridiculous caricature created by The Onion.

I no longer see any point in bothering to vote in presidential elections. It's a waste of time to wait in line and fill out a ballot. None of the candidates in any way represent the present or future interests of this country. This is no longer a democracy answerable to its own people. Our nation has devolved into full-blown plutocracy, and if trends continue, it's headed down a path to fascism.



BTW, Zane is a GREAT man who is caught in the middle of the bands GREED and his cousin's responsibility to their greed


Have a GRATE day,

Your Pal,

THE DIRTY WOOK
