The Missile-Dick Chicks (MDC) are going ON TOUR and need our help --
attending their performances, advertising them to others, setting up
additional gigs, places to stay, and donations as well.
This is one of the most creative offshoots of the current movement, a
continuation of the guerrilla-theater projects that the Red Balloon
Collective, the Mary Magdellan Liberation Front, the Yippies, ArtRage and
others were involved in over the years -- all women, extremely funny and
creative, and definitely a genderbending experience. (They've been going

<http://www.crawfordtx.com/>Crawford, Texas, the home of our beloved

ne'er-do-wells dare to second guess our Commander-in-Chief? For shame!
