Subject: Clean-up: Joplin, MO

How does a disaster like Joplin get cleaned-up? Do people actually sift through or does it get bulldozed and piled-up and burned like a funeral pyre or loaded into dump trucks and dumped into landfills? Is the metal used for scrap? ...separated from phosphorus and nonphosphorus metals? Are like the old aircondition units recycled properly?
I mean, how does a monumental disaster like this get cleaned-up in an efficient, environmentally sound and sustainable manner?
And, how much is the cost, who's paying and who's getting paid and receiving the payments?
Where's the reporting on this?
Thank you.

Dear Dave, Molly and Clayton,
What is your best attribute as a Fox & Friends anchor? (w/out using the answer: "my producer")
What is your best asset as a Fox & Friends anchor? (w/out using the answer: "my producer")
What qualities behind-the-scenes, off air, off camera, add to your success on-the-air and in front of the camera?
What non-formal, non-news-industry experience or practice as a young adult helped prepare you for an anchor on Fox & Friends?
Would you feel as comfortable on-air, on camera on the Fox & Friends set in jeans and a tee shirt and your choice of shoe as in designer, powerhouse, professional clothes (standard for the standard)?
With Don Cannon being a 1 and Keith Oberman being a 10, what number do you best identify with using a 1 - 10 scale?
Could you read off  the prompter w/ a couple martini's under your belt? Do you need all of the script ready to roll or with your producer in your ear could you deliver unwritten, unedited BREAKING NEWS and elaborate off the top of your head if your producer has a seizure and you can't cut to break?
Finally, if you were a smoker, would you smoke Marlboro Lights or Natural American Spirits (organic tobacco with no additives or preservatives)? Or, even if not a smoker, would you rather be exposed to second-hand-smoke from Marlboro Lights or Natural American Spirits (organic tobacco with no additives or preservatives)? ...or doesn't it matter?

When Egos GO BAD: Elway

With the NFL lockout in full swing, John Elway must really be bored.

Somehow Elway -- the Denver Broncos vice president and Hall-of-Fame quarterback -- became aware of the Fort Collins, Colo., punk band "Elway," and decided he's just not cool with the group using his surname.

The Broncos legend's lawyer has requested that the band change its name, but stopped short of suing or issuing a cease and desist order.

The band, to its credit, was mostly amused. In a statement released via, the band acknowledged the letter and suggested Elway had better things to do in the wake of the Broncos' disastrous 2010 season.

"We have no intention of changing the name again. We love the name, regardless of what connotations are inferred by the listener. Surely, if the Dead Kennedys could become one of punk's most popular bands without incurring litigation, Elway can keep their moniker and continue making so-so music for our dozens of fans to enjoy."

Score a point for Elway -- the band, that is. And now the group has now received more press than it ever would have had Elway minded his own business. There have to be quite a few people perusing the band's MySpace site, rocking out to songs like "Wolf Shirt," which to be honest, isn't a bad little jam.

Anyway, it's better than anything Elway or his team have produced in the last year. Maybe he's jealous.

Last nite was the first nite I watched Mike & Molly. (I thought his character was a UPS guy? is that another show?). At any rate, it was really fucking funny and I'm glad to hear this Pittsburgh boy is set-up for another season ... (what a life). ..

And, you know, I probably never would've tuned-in to begin with if I hadn't been tuning-in WDVE Morning Show everyday.

Best of Rusted Roses,

Subject: Bear's Recordings: Flying Burrito Bros opening for the Grateful Dead + Grand Theft Parsons

this is the concert March of 69 when the Flying Burrito Bros opened for the Grateful Dead atthe Avalon Ballroom ... Bear taped it and held the masters and the rights and finally w/ some help released it and the Ameoba people helped it get out and it's on a double disc but if you haven't picked it up yet --- here's the concert (one disc - maybe 2).

also, how about the movie w/ Johnny Knoxville playing Phil Kaufman called Grand Theft Parsons ... you dudes = only in L.A.
