Southeast Kansas and Northeast East Oklahoma Deadheads Unite. 98.9 KKRK out of Coffeyville Kansas has started a new forum on their website radioresultsgroup.com specifically for the Dead. Not much action going on but due to an increasingly large amount of requests for the Grateful Dead during their Live at Lunch show they created a Dead thread in their forums. Last week two tickets were given away to the Chautaqua Hills Blues Festival if you answered the trivia question correctly. Only one person replied and won the tickets. Also we are getting kind of bored with only two or three people being active in there. So if you are in the area tune in or log in because there will be more prizes given away. Oh yeah it's kind of weird hearing Sugar Mag or Box of Rain on the radio in this part of the country.

Thanks ~ yamadog, I will certainly give that a try! $2 a gallon. Whoo Hoo
Yamadaog, We live in a capitalist country and these companies are service/product and ultimately profit driven like most public and private companies. Gas prices are going up for a host of reasons, most of which most people do not understand. Growing demand, limited supply, limited refining capacity, and fast growing middle class in Asia are all contributing to the higher gas prices. $2 gas is history and we better get used to it. Go ask a big oil company that earned $1bn last year to only earn $500mm this year. It isn't going to happen. Alternative energy sources are not the answer either because all that does is reduce the supply of gasoline and cause further inflation. Just like ethanol is doing right now to food prices. I don't know what the answer is, but boycotting isn't going to get it done.
Copy And Pass Along...
Here's the idea: For the rest of this year, DON'T purchase ANY gasoline from the two biggest companies (which now are one), EXXON and MOBIL.
If they are not selling any gas, they will be inclined to reduce their prices. If they reduce their prices, the other companies will have to follow suit.
But to have an impact, we need to reach literally millions of Exxon and Mobil gas buyers. It's really simple to do! Now, don't wimp out on me at this point...keep reading and I'll explain how simple it is to reach millions of people!!
I am sending this note to 30 people. If each of us s end it to at least ten more (30 x 10 = 300) .. and those 300 send it to at least ten more (300 x 10 = 3,000)...and so on, by the time the message reaches the sixth group of people, we will have reached over THREE MILLION consumers.
If those three million get excited and pass this on to ten friends each, then 30 million people will have been contacted!
If it goes one level further, you guessed it..... THREE HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE!!!
Again, all you have to do is send this to 10 people. That's all!
(If you don't understand how we can reach 300 million and all you have to do is send this to 10 people.... Well, let's face it, you just aren't a mathematician. But I am . so trust me on this one.
How long would all that take? If each of us sends this e-mail out to ten more people within one day of receipt, all 300 MILLION people could conceivably be contacted within the next 8 days!!!
I'll bet you didn't think you and I had that much potential, did you!
Acting together we can make a difference.
If this makes sense to you, please pass this message on. I suggest that we not buy from EXXON/MOBIL UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES TO THE $2.00 RANGE AND KEEP THEM DOWN. THIS CAN REALLY WORK.
Keep it going
Dr. Albert Hofmann - January 11 1906 - April 29 2008
It saddens us to confirm that Dr. Albert Hofmann passed away at his home in Burg outside of Basel, Switzerland today, April 29 2008 at the age of 102 years. Dr. Hofmann was at his home with two of his caretakers, he passed away at 9am local time.
Dr Hofmann follows his late wife Anita, who passed away this past December. We do not have much more information at the moment but we will update this note once more becomes available.
We send out condolences to his family and friends and as you all to join us in celebrating the life of one of the most important scientists of the last 102 years. Dr Hofmann's discoveries have touched countless people and brought tremendous change to the world in more ways than can be counted. We are very glad that Dr Hofmann could still witness the early stages of new studies with LSD that will start in Switzerland in the near future. This matter was very important to him, we are grateful to all that were involved in getting approval for this study.
We thank you for all you have done dear Dr Hofmann, may your ways be blessed and peaceful. We will keep your spirit alive and will continue with our work.
The Albert Hofmann Foundation

Happy birthday to all who have shared their love and magic with the world. All who have are "famous" in their own right, and by their own right. This is the thread that binds us all. Thank you.
Happy birthday TL!
