Let’s hear it for Stanford’s band

The people who get upset with the Stanford band probably couldn’t get in to Stanford.

    Back in 1990…

    Wednesday morning, word came down from Alan Cummings, Stanford’s acting athletic director, that the Incomparable Leland Stanford Junior University Marching Band is banned from the football field until it presents an “agreeable show format.” Its format last Saturday disagreed with fans at Autzen Stadium in Eugene, Ore., where the band was booed off the field after it performed a skit that featured a lumberjack and a spotted owl.

    …In another number, as the band formed “POT” on the field, the announcer continued: “Does marijuana cure glaucoma? Some doctors think so. Some people don’t care. Some may front certain causes in order to protect their back yard cash crop. This puts a little twist on Ben Franklin’s saying: ‘Just remember, kids, an owl a day keeps the DEA away.’”

    Literally as I write this, there’s a hooting owl outside my bedroom.

    I checked the CDC site, didn’t see anything about an epidemic of puckered-anusitis breaking out, must be a local infection.

  • Sounds to me as tho they are blaming recreational users for the grows in the State and Federal forests.

    Last I knew that was a symptom of prohibition. Legal growing in regulated States won’t encounter this as a problem.

    Where is the drug war skit, Stanford?

    In regards to illegal grows in our forests I have been hitting every article I find on eco damage done to our forests and streams by these illegal grows are not done by the growers but by the police.

    All fertilizers and chemicals used to grow pot are the same ones used by gardeners and farmers all over the world and are completely safe as long as they are mixed properly before used,,and to avoid burning the plants,usually at 2/3 strength.
    The damage to the environment is when stupid cops dump them unmixed on the ground,,again,damage done by the prohibition forces being blamed on their foes.

      That may be, but would love to be able to go on a few day hike and not have to worry about running into cartel stooges.

    A sense of humor is not always appreciated, in my (repeated… over and over…) experience.
