Holiday Potluck!
Our December meeting will be a potluck on Thursday, December 10 at the old church (this is actually true). Every attendee will receive a new automobile, courtesy of the Louisville City Council. Please be sure to bring your favorite dish to share with the other proud new car owners. After the meeting, we will form a procession up and down Main street with our new cars to show them off to City Hall.

Clinton Dedicates Nebraska
President Clinton has declared that the entire state of Nebraska will be designated a National Prairie Dog Preserve. In Monday s interview with CNN, Clinton came out in favor of the embattled prairie dog, stating "I identify with underdogs, and they don t get any more under than this. Anyhow, I m not sure that anyone actually lives in Nebraska." Nebraska Governor Winthrop P. Filcher appeared on Larry King Live Monday night and verified that humans do indeed inhabit his fine state. However, he conceded that the prairie dog s need is dire, and has agreed to start human relocation next week.

Governor Filcher is accepting relocation proposals from independent contractors. As always in government, the lowest bid will win. So far, the following proposals have been accepted for review:

A final decision will be made by early December, so that residents can be out on the streets before Christmas.
