Raises The Dead
Morticon, local Wallaby and alleged leader of the SED, amazed
the Rose Garden crowd with a hair raising threat of bringing deceased
twinks to life. In a somewhat hazy attempt to either
frighten, confuse, or kill Argon, local centaur, Morticon
threatened Argon with bringing back characters that once, but no
longer frequent SpinDizzy. Among those he threatened to
revive with his previously undisclosed powers of reanimation
were, Random, Foxchange, and of course Mozdoc. Morticon's
threats were taken lightly by Argon. It became apparent
why, as Morticon's list of dead twinks was run over roughshod
(Get it...? Centaur...rough shod?) by Argon's threat of
bringing back Merlin! That put a quick end to the debate
about who's reanimated twink would defeat the other's.
Argon asked folks in the Rose Garden, "I'm doing a survey
for @Action News. Got a suggestion for the survey for the
paper this week?"
Natasha - Elastic Coati -
"Sure. Who would win in a fight, http://remix.kwed.org/
?" / Rhea - Cybernetic Falcon -"What's your favorite
ice-cream flavor?' That's always a classic. Or...'If you could
be a color what would it be?'" ^v^ / Flutterz - Wanna
be Dread Pirate, Flower Fae - "S'who be DREAD? S'wheresa
sparklie stuffs kept?" / Maxl - Badger -
"You should ask how to factor large numbers into
their prime components, of course." / Gino - Deafie Rabbit
- "What do you use the muck for? Socializing or roleplaying?"
/ Mavra - Centaur - "Mushrooms; good and tasty, or
downright nasty and squishy?" / Ringo - Raccoon -
"Okay. Why are surveys used to gather information, when
they are traditionally inaccurate, and non-representative?"
/ Dr. Gast - Eternal Guest - "Would you rather have rot hot
pokers shoved into your eyes while listening to Richard Simmons
sing "Rocket Man", or play Final Fantasy VIII?"
/ Rown - Centaur -
||Kitty Bobo Debuts on Cartoon Network; Surprisingly World Doesn't Care
This week yet another insipid and boring cartoon debuted on Cartoon Network, alluringly entitled 'Kitty Bobo'. Despite the fact that Bobo is a rather masculine name, Bobo is apparently female - but
don't be fooled! The carton, based on notes left behind by famous cross-dresser and
part-time movie director Edward D. Wood, Jr., tells the story of Bobo, your average everyday cat-guy, who desperately wants to be a catgirl with loose morals.
Donning his dress and spiked heels to fight crime and find a date, Bobo fights 'her' enemies, a
group of aliens bent on taking over the world through corny plots that usually involve bringing famous monsters back from the dead. Despite the fact that it sounds good, Kitty Bobo is hardly anything worth watching - shoddy animation and worse writing make it just another
Cartoon-Cartoon for stoned people to break the monotony between showings of 'Scooby-Doo', 'The New
Scooby-Doo Mysteries', 'A Pup Named Scrappy-Doo', and other Cartoon-Cartoons. This, along with the much-touted 'Samurai Jack' Cartoon-Cartoon, proves that Cartoon Network still sucks, and that Ted Turner is laughing at us while he rolls around
naked in thousand-dollar bills with million-dollar hookers.
To Think About
All 'furries' aren't
just lying around fuzzling and yiffing. Some have serious
thoughts and ideas. One, Ringo, local Raccoon has some thoughts
on 'Dying with Dignity' and has been thoughtful enough to share
them with us. As Ringo states in
the paper's Abstract, 'The short title of this paper
called ‘The Good Death,’ is the direct translation of the
Greek word euthanasia. With increased longevity, issues of
suffering from chronic illness have given rise to fears of a
slow and painful death. Patients are looking to their health
care providers for reassurance they will not suffer and in some
instances asking for help to die. This paper is an historical
research project of a non-experimental design covering religion,
government, physicians, and the patient and family, to review
their influences and determine who ultimately is in control of the act of

Procedure for Submitting Articles
||Submitting a story
or artwork for @Action News is easy! Just send it to firstname.lastname@example.org,
or qmail or page Argon about it.
Most any type of story or article will be excepted.
Generally, we'd prefer things that aren't out and out lies or
flames about other folks, and have a basis in the reality of
SpinDizzy. The things reported don't have to have actually
happened, (Any more than anything that happens here does.) but
make sure you don't overstep the social boundaries and rules of
interaction that we have. These are pretty broad
guidelines, but we expect good sense to apply.
