ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

Drunk & Disorderly

My fellow alumnus from the University of Missouri is a mental midget. Of course, I don't know when we decided that Music grads should dictate public policy in the area of science, but it seems like actors, musicians, and journalists are now the new cognoscenti of the 21st century.

Sheryl Crow (one of the most over-rated musicians of our time) is calling for all of us to limit our toilet paper to 1 square - or perhaps 3 on occasion - while at the same time she's cruising around the US in three tractor trailers, four tour buses, and six cars - all the while boozing it up on (no doubt) chilled liquor.

From The Smoking Gun (via Drudge):

When it comes to Sheryl Crow's touring requirements, if it's Tuesday, this must be Bombay. Gin that is. The rock star's performance contract includes specific day-to-day instructions on what kind of booze Sheryl needs in her dressing room (TSG has never seen such attention to detail in any other concert rider we've posted). For each show, Crow requires 12 bottles of Grolsch beer, 6 bottles of "local" beer, and a bottle each of "good Australian Cabernet" and "good Merlot." As for the harder stuff, promoters are directed to purchase specific booze depending on what day of the week the concert falls, as the below rider excerpt reveals. Additionally, when the global warming warrior hits the road, her touring entourage (and equipment) travels in three tractor trailers, four buses, and six cars. Now that's a carbon footprint!

But, hey... she gets a pass because she has to spread the message (and cash in on the movement)!!!
