VIVA LA FIESTA!
Burn old Zozobra!
its ... ITS: Virtual Santa Fe!
-- The Sun: The Little Paper that Would --
and, Bookshelf, The Little Column that Could ....
'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.
1. Greg Pleshaw's history of the Sun
(Note: The paper has since been purchased from
James by Sean and Betty Townshend, who are NOT anything like Mr. Tomarelli. But, we include it here, because
we want you to have a feeling for the history of the Sun. When I was in high school, Skip Whitson's first
incarnation was that of an UNDERGROUND newspaper, complete with Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers cartoons and
discussions of sex, drugs and rock& roll. Thank god we've all put those behind us, eh?)
2. Visit Santa Fe ONLINE!
3. Or let the NM Film Commission talk you into shooting in SF!
Hell, everybody else does. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito swaggering
down San Francisco Street by the La Fonda so's they can get Bishop Lamy's
Cathedral in the shot still MAKES ME WANNA PUKE! Go back to wherever the
hell it is you polluted before, boys! Leave Santa Fe to the nativos!
(native-reared -- tolerance is a very SF thing, and it's sure screwed US!!)
4. Hook up the OXEN! It's the Interactive Santa Fe Trail!
5. Buy some Native American souvenirs! A virtual rendezvous...
6. There! Now, you can virtually WALK Santa Fe ...
And, unless you watch your step, the acquisitive bastards
who now own it will HAVE you afoot and homeless until you can escape ... VIRTUALLY
in this case, thank goodness! Welcome to the Rape of the West, folks! We's been
Aspenized. Well, thank God we don't live in Missoula!

last updated on FIESTA, 1996! "eeee! Burn the @#$#$#$!" [authentic dialogue]
and yes, kiddies, La Tortuga (el Econolinoyana, for you Spanglish Buddhists)
survived her caving under the weight of so many bros during the '92 Fiesta,
and sits here in Oregon, having been purchased from Harry earlier THAT night.
