4. I hope you'll be able to enjoy this brilliant comic, "Marc Maron Live" for our times --Martha Sullivan

I called the Comedy Store to confirm that there ARE 8p and 10p shows on Saturday, June 16th as well as Friday, June 15th (the website is a little confusing), and also found out that it's cheaper to buy tix at their box office rather than on-line (e.g., the ticket processing fees).

Check it out at:
You can find out more about Marc at: (including archives of his Air America "Morning Sedition" show)

* If you saw him at the Saturday Night Beach Party Blowout at last summer's DemocracyFest (at SDSU), you KNOW what a treat it is to see Marc Maron live -- and he's coming back to San Diego in 2 weeks for 4 full shows! Hope you'll try to make it to one of them, as Charlie and I plan to (Saturday 8p, most likely) -- we need to give him a warm, San Diego progressive welcome once more AND we get to enjoy one of the funniest, most perceptive and RIGHT ON comics currently working.

5. "CARE ONE" By Kathy will be doing a presentation and asking sign a resolution in support of SB 840. Universal Health Care. [address removed]
