rumors about town

from the accord-kerhonksen new site:

"In response to the legal advice, the Fire District adopted a policy prohibiting the regular use of Fire District equipment for the benefit of private individuals or enterprises. He also indicated that the former policy of the fire department filling private residential swimming pools using [Accord Fire Department] equipment and calling such activity “training exercises,” has also ended."

temporary insanity

Found in a thrift store book -- Woody Allen's Hannah and Her Sisters (1986) -- several pages of notes on what I believe were meant to be TV shows. (But maybe movies?)

"Temporary Insanity: temp in NY discovers ... what? becomes unwitting participant in caper of international dimensions -- w/ Japanese? female, attractive, laid-off with degree from Yale -- maybe she knew Prez's son -- and somehow that becomes part of the story"

"Coach: comedy about Dana Kirk-like character + his run 'n gun basketball team -- set in '70s"

"Faculty Senate: A sitcom with lots of wacky characters"

Above, "76 blowjobs." More here, including every playboy centerfold and 100 special moments. don't miss. don't forget
