Well, now that the Waco Wackos have gone out in a media wet dream, it's time
for the awards. Pay no heed to the 300-pound Police Chief openly necking
with his 295-pound wife in the back row.
BEST ALTERNATIVE STRATEGY
My bass teacher, Jeremy, for suggesting that the FBI's hostage negotation
team be replaced by a team of Televangelists. Imagine Oral, Falwell, and
Billy doing dueling Bibles with Koresh! Although I can picture Swaggart
saying, "So you tell 'em that if you fuck their wives and daughters, they'll
better off because YOU'RE the sinner?! Damn! And I've been PAYING for it!"
BEST FBI STRATEGY
Trashing Koresh's car (I didn't know Jesus drove a souped-up black Camaro).
A tie between Herb Caen:
"David Koresh is hardly the first rock guitarist to announce he's
and the FBI hostage negotiator who took Koresh's expletive-filled call
when the Camaro was being trashed:
"That doesn't sound very Jesus-like."
