On and on time marches until the mania surfaces
Time foretold on canvasses
Hopes melt on time made with molasses
Even when no one's going to illegal stashes
Stock market crashes
Last word to the exit points of big fat asses
According to the popularity of fetid gases
Otherwise known as the choices of the masses
Deceit, conceit confound the compasses
Slick talk trashes
Suggests no need for the school room classes
Watch the counter as "they" "Alas!" us...

"Sure, video cameras have come mighty close to toppling careers--ask ROB LOWE. But can they topple governments" 'Video is a major revolution,' says OLIVER STONE, who joined the likes of MICHAEL STIPE, EDDIE VEDDER and SEAN PENN (married the day before) at a VH1 Honors benefit concert for the human-rights outfit Witness. Co-founded by PETER GABRIEL, it gives out cameras and fax machines in more than 50 countries worldwide, urging folks to record human-rights violations. Backstage, VEDDER, who with Sony gifted 100 camcorders to the cause, shied away from posing for a photo with PETE TOWNSHEND. 'You shouldn't get too close to your idols,' says VEDDER."

CHAPPAQUA, NEW YORK,
[AFTER JANUARY 20, 2001...THIS IS THE HOME ADDRESS THAT HE AND PROSPECTIVE NEW YORK SENATOR HILLARY WILL HAVE WHEN THEY LEAVE THE WHITE HOUSE.]
CNN, WHEN THE ADDRESS WAS FIRST REPORTED IN THE PRESS, NOTED THAT ITS PREVIOUS GREATEST CLAIM TO FAME WAS THAT IT WAS THE BIRTHPLACE OF HORACE GREELEY.
PLEASE NOTE WHAT I QUOTED OF HIM IN WHAT YOU FIND IF YOU TAKE A BRIEF SIDESTEP HERE...WRITTEN IN 1987.
AND THAT WAS DERIVED FROM SOMETHING I WROTE IN 1982 AS IS SUBSTANTIATED BY WHAT YOU FIND IF YOU TAKE YOUR NEXT FOOTSTEP HERE.
