Save the Delta

The following is not a political meeting, but what they will do has great political overtones. The more people who are involved in this process, the fewer people who will even think of voting for our favrite congressman.

Dear Friends:
Here are the logistical details for tomorrow's Restore the Delta Meeting. Please arrive at the Redwood Room at University of the Pacific at 5:45 p.m. to register. The Redwood Room is located on the second floor of the McCaffrey Center. Below you will find a link for a map and driving directions.

Best regards,
Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla
Restore the Delta

If you are driving to Stockton, here are travel time estimates. In Stockon on Interstate 5, there are nine Stockton exits.

1. Use the direct route by taking the March Lane exit rather than the Pershing Avenue Exit, which is marked on I5 as an exit for the university.
If you are driving...
Then exit at March Lane and turn...
south on I-5 left at the bottom of the March Lane exit and go under the overpass.
north on I-5 right at the bottom of the March Lane exit, away from the overpass.

2. Drive east on March Lane for approximately 1.5 miles to Pacific Avenue. Turn right.

3. Drive south on Pacific Avenue about 1 mile. You will see the most prominent building on campus, Burns Tower, as you cross a bridge.

4. After the bridge, turn right at the next stoplight onto the campus.

5. Turn right again and park in front of Burns Tower. Go inside the tower to get a free visitor's parking pass, campus map, and any other help you need.

In fact, this effort may get more converts that all of the overt political actions we talk about.

Besides, you didn't think Delta would pass on this, did you?

Yo Apollo!

Rocky here. I wuz wunnerin if I wuz ever gonna here from you again. Lemme poisonally welcum you to dis blot on behalf of duh Inner Circle. I tell you Apollo, yer gonna love dis blottin. Its duh latest ting - jest like bein in duh ring when you and me wuz in our primes.

But foist of all, fer sayin that about my Adrian, Rocky gonna mop up duh kitchen floor when he's done cookin wit dat Brillo-pad head of yers, on accounta duh fact dat duh grease from fryin duh whale meat splattered all over duh place. Heh heh heh.

Anyways, seriously Apollo, good to hear from you old buddy. Where you livin dese days? Me and Adrian and Paulie moved to Stock-town, but little did we know we bought a house built on a friggin floodplain built by sum dirtbag developer after he paid off a Congressman named ButtaPombO. I mean Jeezus - you can't make this crap up.

Toins out duh guy looks like a fat little pigeon while his cheeks are stuffed wit Abramoff dough like a chipmunk and he's got a voice like Frankie Valley. Not only dat, but dis guy ain't woikin. Yet duh little maggot got his own jet airplane, duh little maggot is a millionaire. You know what I mean?

Anyways, us Dems are gonna knock him down in November. Mebbe you'll wanna convene duh black caucus or is it duh Caucasian blacks to help us throw duh bum out?

Rocky out. Apollo in. Even saw Mr $.02 earlier. A pretty good friggin day so far!

Yo Rocky, go screw yourself, you dimwit. I'm a gonna mop up the ring with your ugly face next time. Ha, ha, just joking! Good to hear from ya. I sees youse out in Stock-town. I be over in Low-di, which is near where you is, I dink.

Anyways, what is wit dat friggin Pombo hiding dem Delta floodplain maps? He wants to do a New Orleans on all of us over here or what? What an idiot. Can't stop stuffin his fat pockets with that Grupe/Spanos dough. He always talking 'bout appropriating money for dis and money for dat, but nuttin ever gets done in this here district, 'cept Annette keeps opening those offshore bank accounts to stuff all the dough in.

Now, I got two or tree of dem accounts, too, but I won dat loot fair and square by beating your stupid ass in the ring. I don't need to be on the take like this creep Pombo.

You no what I'm gonna do, you loser? I'm gonna get the Led out and play "When the Levee Breaks". That about sums up dis here Low-di living. Too bad its gonna flood all that fine Zinfendeal wine grapes yards and things.

Oh, dat's right, I fergot, youse and Adrian and Paulie still drinkin' dat cheap Narragansett beer. Or you take a step up and start drinkin Milwaukee now? What a loser you is, I'm a gumma whip your ass again, next time around. Ha, ha!

Yo Apollo.

Rocky here. You has gotta be kiddin me: Low-di? You moved to friggin Low-di? Don't you know duh friggin Klan hangs out in Low-di fer Chrissake? You don't wanna be singin about bein stuck dere when dey put on dose sheets in duh middle of duh nite, on accounta duh fact dat dere's only one of you and lots of dese friggin morons.

Butt anyways, Jeezus Apollo - I mean we is now like friggin Jim Neighbors wit you in Low-di and me in Stock-town. You find any places to get a good cheezesteak hoagie dere in Low-di? If yes, you better give Rocky duh Low-down. Heh heh heh.

Anyways, don't tell me you wuz as dumB as Rocky and bought a house on duh floodplane too? I tink we oughta sue friggin Spanos and all his little grupees fer as many rupees as we can get, you know what I'm sayin? I mean if my house ever floods, I'm gonna sue him and ButtaPombO fer every penny dey have, includin everyting in dere on-shore AND off-shore bank accounts. On accounta duh fact dat my trophies are priceless, esp duh ones I got fer kickin yer butt.

Anyways, I jest started rightin duh scrip fer my new movie, and after a great deal of tinkin and inspired thought I came up wit Rocky VII. Dis could be my most creative title yet, you know what I mean?

You wanna be in it? Shall I kick yer big black butt dis time or let you kick my white one? I dunno - I wuz even tinkin of doin a surprise ending, like mebbe havin Paulie sub fer Rocky at duh last minit and havin him kick yer butt (cuz like I gotta fly home to Stock-town to cast duh decidin vote dat throws ButtaPombO out). Whaddya tink of Paulie kickin yer butt Apollo? Heh heh heh.

Anyways, Rocky don't drink no beer no more. I'm layin off duh raw eggs too. I been drinkin dese Mexican soda pops, cuz dey taste pretty good and we didn't have 'em in Philly. Paulie's been bringin 'em home by duh case. He sez he's gettin 'em fer free. I dunno where he's gettin 'em, butt he's been stayin out late and sumtimes not cummin home at all. I tink he's found hisself a little Chiquita, and I suspect its duh senorita at duh Mexican restaurant.

I dunno if she's legal or not. She's a cutie though. And she sure works hard.

Rocky out.
