GPD inquiry finds no

The allegations of racial discrimination

Several GPD officials trying to recover
from the incident that has angered local
black community leaders reacted to those
findings with relief.
"I had no idea how this report would
come out. That's why we brought in the in investigators,*

Johnston, who is filling the position

The investigators were first
contacted May 27 and asked to
inquire into Jones' and Scott's
allegations concerning GPD's
racial makeup and minority

Scott and Jones, who have
been at GPD for a combined 34
years, brought their concerns
to Shinnamon and City Man-

ager Wayne Bowers in March.
The day after speaking with the chief
and city manager, Scott was demoted and
Shinnamon told Jones to "consider your
options," Scott said.
The City Commission then asked
Bowers to prepare a report addressing the
complaints made by Jones and Scott.
That report was released April 7, eight
days after Scott was transferred from head
of Internal Affairs to the lower-level patrol
division.

Tom Rider, co-owner of
Goerings Book Store, said he is
surprised that Internet textbook
services survive because, unlike
local bookstores that also sell
apparel and magazines, they
only sell textbooks and must fill
a large volume of orders in a
short period of time.
We couldn't really survive if
all we did was sell textbooks/*
Rider said. "I think there are
some things that sell on the
Internet, but I don't think text textbooks
books textbooks is one of them."
Rider recently experienced a
problem with an Internet book
service when a professor found
an edition of a book online that
included supplemental readings
and ordered several copies of
the book through Goerings.
When the book arrived, it con contained
tained contained only the supplemental
readings and not the text of the
book. Realizing students would
have to purchase the supple supplemental
mental supplemental readings and the book
separately, the instructor asked
that Goerings return the book.
Goerings obliged.
Rider believes that kind of
customer service makes his
store competitive with Internet
textbook services.
"People like to think that

of the future, but whether or not
it is, we'll have to see," Rider
said. "Maybe I'm wrong, but

The Alligator Department of Darts & Laurels is feeling under
the weather waaaay under the weather. I
Like, subterranean depths under the weather.
The Department is puzzled over how one could catch a cold (or
whatever die hell it is) in the dead of summer, but it does know
that sounds of tortured coughing still can be heard through the
Department's door. It has not been a good week.
According to our medical staff, our tonsils are approximately
the size of Ping-Pong balls which is better than golf balls but
still not quite where the Department would like them to be.
As a result of the swollen tonsils and the three-alarm fire that's
burning bright in the back of the Department's throat, there is a
slight problem getting messages to the rest of the Alligator news newsroom.

Right now, the Department's voice sounds something like a
mix of the voices of Joan Rivers and Miles Davis, with a little
Phyllis Diller thrown in for good measure. Verbal communication
has virtually ground to a halt.
Depending on who you talk to, that's a good thing.
So, grab your industrial-sized quantities of Chloriseptic and
lozenges and get ready to cough your way through this week's

Why don't you throw in a skit about the Ad Sheet guy. That's
never been done either.
Being in a coughing-induced grumpy mood, we stay negative
and give a the-heavens-are-going-to-have-a-field-day-wim-you
DART to Eighth Judicial Circuit Court Judge Larry Turner.
Turner declared unconstitutional part of a state law stiffening the
possible prison term for selling drugs within 1,000 feet of churoies.
Drug dealer: You sing beautifully, little choir girl. But have you
ever sung... on weed?!

Attention women: Men are pigs

Now I know that some of you girls are think thinking,
ing, thinking, Not my man! My man is different. My
man is special.* Well he's not. He's a gross, dis disgusting
gusting disgusting pig, just like the rest of us.
Sure, we can hide it for a couple of months.
We even have ways of disguising our true re repulsiveness
pulsiveness repulsiveness in ways that actually make us look
sweet.
But we can only hold out for so long before
our true colors start secreting through.
Yeah, we'll start gradually an "accidental"
fart here, a small puddle next to your toilet
there (oops!).
But before you know it, we'll change from
your ideal man to something more reminis reminiscent
cent reminiscent of A1 Bundy.
I'm even going to be so kind as to give you
warning signs that your dream man has
started his inevitable transformation into,
we 11... me.
First of all, men are thoughtless. We don't
know why that is; we never really cared
enough to analyze it.
Every time we do something nice, it is done
to hide something we know would nauseate
you at that stage of our relationship. I'll give
you an example.
You and your sweetheart are lying on the
couch watching television:
HIM: "Honey, you look thirsty, let me get
you a drink."
YOU: Wow, you are so wonderful. I would
love a drink, darling. Do you need help?"
HIM: NO! I mean it's OK. I can manage. Be
right back, pumpkin."
Then he will to go into your kitchen and re release
lease release that gaseous nubble he's been holding in
his intestine for the last hour as quietly as he
can, hoping you don't hear it.
Half the time, he will return to the living
room, forgetting to even bring the drink and
will have to return to the stench-filled kitchen
and retrieve it.
Another thing. After the initial "getting to
know you" stage, we never call just to talk.
Sure, if you leave a message on our machine,
we are obligated to call you back.
If we don't, we are well aware that we will be
cut off from any form of physical contact until
we purchase you a minimum of two dinners
and take you to a chick flick of your choice.
If your man calls you for no reason, that can
only mean one thing he's in the bathroom.
The invention of the cordless phone has dras drastically
tically drastically changed relationships much more than
most women are aware of.

The views expressed here are not necessarily those of the Alligator.

If you have complaints that your man does
not call you enough, there are two things you
can do to change this: First, you must make
sure he has a cordless phone or a phone with a
long enough cord to reach the bathroom.
Second, have him remove the Playboys that
he and his roommates have hidden under
their bathroom sink.
If you are appalled by the fact that I am in insinuating
sinuating insinuating your man has dirty magazines, too
bad. He does.

Speaking Out
We are not very original at hiding them, ei either.
ther. either. If they're not under the bathroom sink,
then they're under the single roommate's bed
with the latest edition underneath his mat mattress.
tress. mattress.
Now, if all of you are wondering why I am
telling you this, it's primarily because we're
tired.
During our last Secret Male Meeting (which
we refer to as "Guys Night Out" whenever any anyone
one anyone of the opposite gender is around) we the
men of die world voted unanimously to stop
the pretending.
We decided that with the energy we save we
could end world hunger, eliminate war and
even have enough time left over to watch
Sports Center.
We decided that even when you discover
what truly disgusting pigs we are, sure you will
still love us. Look at our fathers!
At one point in time, our mothers looked at
them ana thought, "Damn, what a gross, dis disgusting
gusting disgusting pig, but I love him so much."
Then they split a bottle of Boone's Straw Strawberry
berry Strawberry Hill and shared that magical night to together
gether together dining which we were created.
Then she lied and told him how sexy he is
while running her fingers thorough his al already-thinning
ready-thinning already-thinning hair. He belched and asked if
they were out of beer. Nine months later, we
were bom. You are going to love us regardless,
so we are stopping this charade.
We are disgusting. We are pigs.
And we are MEN!

In other words, you can't be

impartial hearing.
The Alligator's wire services
are hardly the place to hold a fair

Before we assume everything
the refugees are saying is true,
we must test their story.
Are there other corroborating
witnesses? Do the refugees have
something to gain (i.e. resident
alien and possible citizenship sta status

did the guard say that appalled

THURSDAY, JULY 8, 1999, ALLIGATOR,

Long-term plan
needed for INS
Editor: In Tuesday's editorial
"Too patriotic," the Alligator
staff brought to our attention
the grotesque, abusive behavior
of an INS agent, calling upon of officials
ficials officials to, "Fire this man and hold
him personally responsible."
"This will work out," they said.
Will it work out? Will every everything
thing everything be OK after one man is
fired? Or would firing him be
tantamount to "sweeping it un under
der under the rug.
A better response might be
agency-wide sensitivity training.
Rather than a quick, easy public
hanging, the INS should use the
incident to make its employees
better U. S. representatives.

Pavement
Terror Twilight
A few years ago in Atlanta, I was offered numerous
bribes in exchange for my Pavement tickets includ-

perfection that made Pavement such an indie standard
throughout the years. Its latest, Terror Twilight is follow following
ing following a pattern of softer and smoother is better. Closer to'
Dairy Queen's Vanilla than Ben and Jerry's Chubby
Hubby. Though maybe not as endearing as Slanted and
Enchanted, Pavement is still able to maintain that charm
that almost got me some great stereo equipment. Be Besides,

the world.

Flaming Lips
The Soft Bulletin
In the last 12 years, The Flaming Ups have been
lot of things: psychedelic punkers, surprise novelty hit
makers and ambitious experimentalists. Now, you can
add sonic-pop geniuses to that list. The Soft Bulletin
reads like this year's most engaging pop album, and
sounds like a tribute to the sheer emotional release in-

herent in sound itself. The
hooks are powerful, and its
currently unparalleled wall of
sound ebbs and flows with
pure liquid emotion. The
production is a welcomed
change from the industry's
preoccupation with 10-fidelty

indie schlock. Describing compelling space noise,
emotive music and driving fuzzy percussion only
scratches the surface of this fabulous record. Just imag imagine
ine imagine Pet Sounds by a group of disillusioned post-punk
Oklahomans. Yowza.

Whoever said traditional Celtic and West African
sounds and a thumping techno undertow don't mix is
probably kicking themselves in the can right about
now. OK, I don't think anyone ever said that, but I'm
sure nobody really thought about it either until Afro

Here's what war movies are sup supposed

So, I decided to hammer out a list

glory days when men were men,
and war was America's favorite past

All the vtor lds needs can be solved with a great soul band

By James Montgomery
The other day I had a terrific idea, something ( feel I should
share with all of you. My idea was a simple one, born of an ex extreme
treme extreme night of drinking my favorite ice-brewed ale, Mickey's Ice.
Anyway, my idea was this: Start up a soul band. Not just any soul
band, oh no. But the greatest soul band in all the land.
I couldn't believe it. Why hadn't anyone thought of this be before?
fore? before? This nation is tired of cheesy boy bands. It is crying out for a
super group to tear the roof off this mutha.
Os course, this soul juggernaut would need a name. Something
that not only rolled off the tongue, but that would definitely letthe
people know that we are here to jam. The name needed to be sub subtle
tle subtle enough for a tender slow groove, yet hot enough to light a fire
under your unfunky ass. And after much deliberation (and more
quarts), the Longwood Soul Revue was bom.
Yes people; the Longwood Soul Revue* the greatest soul band in
aN the land. I began to have visions of sold out nights at The Apollo
Theater in Harlem. A stage show that would include dancers, an

Improv troupe offers fresh laughs

By Jon Forysthe
Two summers ago, Gainesville heard its name
in the wind. Cinnamon Grin.
It came and everyone agreed that it was top
rate entertainment. Gnnamon Grin.
Now, just as quickly as it came, this group is
about to leave town and when it does, you will still
hear the whispers. Gnnamon Grin.
For you Summer B freshmen out there asking
"What the heck are you talking about, Jon?* Cin Cinnamon
namon Cinnamon Grin is not a band, but an improvisational
theater troupe. A second question you may ask is
"What the heck is improvisational theater?*
Basically, this group of seven talented players
does theatrical scenes and monologues without
preparation. They make it up right there and
then* No script. No props. No kidding.
They take suggestions from the audience and
create scenes and small tittle plays right before

course; the sweatiest bunch of musicians the world has ever seen.

and they came to me like birds on a soft summer breeze. I would
call myself the Fabulous Doo-Rag, and I would surround myself

The people that make up CG are also just as
great, if not better, than the troupe itself. There's
James Whittington, great at befuddled charac characters;
ters; characters; Justin McElwee, who has tons of energy;
Tony Seales, local "pimp king;" Darrah Barth, not
afraid to do wacky characters; Kerensa Peterson,
great at grounded characters; Ed Zeltner, the tall
one; and Matt Soule, see him try to figure out
what's going on. Cinnamon Grin.
Most of them are leaving for San Diego at the
end of summer and will show the West coast just
what a great improv troupe is. So this summer
will be your last chance to see just how genius
their improv can get.
I should know, I've been doing improv for three
years and have been a fan of CG since they began.
So, go see them, bring your friends along, and
then you too can say you saw the great improv
troupe of Gainesville; Fla. Gnnamon Grin.
CG performs periodically at Common Grounds.

We would rule the charts, pumping out jam after Jam. We
would become the nation's premiere soul ensemble. We would
date celebrities, show up drunk for award shows, and objectify
the hell out of women, all in the name of soul. Then, just as we
were hitting our peak, we would declare ourselves "bigger than

TATTOQ, from cover
From behind the privacy blinds of the designated booth,
piercer Skyyler Faith goes to work.
"Mom! You're turning red. Bright red!*
"That hurt worse than my earlobes. I guess I'll know if it
was worth it in a month," Mom says. "I'm gonna go email all
my friends and tell thenv 'Mission accomplished!'"
WHAT'S THE WEIRDEST THING YOU'VE
EVER SEEN?
Eric Carlson, 26, doesn't fit the tattoo-artist stereotype.
His cJeaiMiving lifestyle, lack of self-consciousness and goofy
sense of humor make him fpsm more suited for a Star Trek
convention than a tattoo shop.
"so, what do you do for a living?" Carlson, always talkative
and curious, asks his customer, Julia.
"I work in an emergency room," she says, wincing. She's
bent over, getting an elaborate floral pattern inked into her
sensitive lower back.
Carlson's brow furrows with concentration above his
thick, black Buddy Holly-styled horn-rimmed glasses.
"What's the weirdest thing you've ever Seen?" he asks.
"The weirdest? That would have to be ... Ouch! The guy
who came in and had to get a dildo removed."
Conversation in the busy back room halts a brief moment.
Chattering electric-motor noise from three tattoo guns
bounces off the fresh, white walls. Then, silence, followed by
a burst of laughter and a chorus of questions.
"How big was it?!"
"Did they pull it through the other end?"
"Couldn't they just, umm, give him a laxative or something?"
"No, they had to surgically remove it, actually cut around
it," Julia says. "And the weird thing was ...Ouch!... He wasn't
even embarrassed."
AH, THE OLD GLASS EYE TRICK
Wayne Lessard, 33, is in charge at Body Tech. He's been
tattooing for 20 years, the past 18 professionally.
He worked three years at the recently closed Gainesville
tattoo studio Cool World, and his new shop has been open
about a month.
He first met Carlson six or seven years ago, when they
worked together airbrushing sculptures. Lessard's arms were
covered with green and black ink with designs running and
melting into each other.
When Carlson saw them, he became interested in learning
the craft, pestering Lessard for a year before he finally agreed.
"He was a real pain in my ass," Lessard says, whispering just
loud enough for everyone to overhear. Serious when discuss discussing
ing discussing proper tattoo care, he otherwise cracks jokes constantly.
David Kotinsley, Lessard's 23-year-old working appren apprentice,
tice, apprentice, is downright reserved, unlike Lessard or Carlson.
Kotinsle/s deadpan expression is quite effective when
playing pranks on customers.
"So, you didn't even notice he had a glass eye; huh?"
Lessard asks, startling the latest victim in Kotinslcy's chair.
"Yeah, they never know until you say something," he mut mutters,
ters, mutters, eyes rolling upward and glazing over for effect as he
snaps on his rubber surgical gloves.

Patrick Hughes
Tattoo artist Eric Carlson inks his permanent creation on a customer. Carlson, 26, has recently started collection tattoo
memorabilia from the '3os and '4os and wants to eventually have a museum dedicated to tattooing's history.

IT'S ALWAYS THE BIG, MACHO GUYS
Tattoo needles are tiny, sharp, flexible things that come
packaged in rows. They're broken up and soldered onto
metal rods, fanned out for shading or tightly bundled for dif different
ferent different sized lines. The/re sterilized twice and put in sealed,
individual medical packages. When the tattoo is finished the
needles are broken off of the rods and put in a disposal con container
tainer container designed for biologically compromised sharp objects.
.The motorized guns break down into different parts that also
get inserted into a variety of ultrasonic cleaning machines before
and after every use. Tattoo shops, with their constant sprayings
of ammonias and soaps, smell cleaner than a doctor's office.
Tattoo guns hook up to an electric power source that's con controlled
trolled controlled by a foot pedal. Coils in the gun are magnetized for
split-second intervals, causing a flexible piece of metal and the at attached
tached attached needle-rod to move back and forth. The artists scoop up
inks with the gun's barrel that guides the rod and needles. The
needles puncture the top layers of skin and push in the colors.
It makes one hell of a racket. Blue and white sparks occa occasionally
sionally occasionally arc across the coils. Although a properly done tattoo
is a superficial wound that heals quickly, a scab forms, and
there is some blood. Sometimes people faint.
"It's always the big, macho guys," Lessard laughs.
Eric Weiter, who wouldn't look out of place on the offensive
line of a college football team, Has started to look a little pale just
minutes after his tattoo session starts.
"Maybe you should give that guy a break," Lessard says to
Carlson, noticing Welter's change in color. Then, to Weiter,
"Hey man, arrrrre yooouuu ohhhh-kaaaaay?"
The big man's Mps turn white and hiseyes rol back Into his head,
and Carison wipes Welter's forehead with a wet paper towel.
Weiter wakes up, bathed in sweat He walks around a bit to
get his bearings, then finishes getting the cow skull on his
shoulder without further incident.
"It's not from the pain. It's mental," Lessard explains. "You
get so psyched up, juiced with endorphins. Then the needle
hits, and you're out."
"Yeah, when I saw all the sweat on his legs and forearms I
knew he was toast," Carlson says.
JUST ANOTHER JAMAICAN EX-GYMNAST
UF student Nandi Witter doesn't faint during her tattoo. In
fact, the needle plunging into her lower back, inking in the
black silhouette of a dragon, doesn't faze her at all. She turned
18 today and is celebrating by getting her second tattoo.
"My first is*the Chinese character for dragon on my shoul-

der," she says. "I also bought a Black 'n' Mild (cigar) today,
but they didn't even card me."
All clients at Body Tech must show proof of age -you have
to be 18 to get a tattoo and 16 to even walk in the door.
Lessard's 20-year-old wife Amanda is the receptionist, and
she makes sure all clients fill out the necessary paperwork
while screening out drunks and the underage.
Amanda has had Witter sign a release form stating she is
not under the influence of drugs or alcohol and does not suf suffer
fer suffer from hepatitis, heart conditions, epilepsy or "any physi physical,
cal, physical, mental or medical impairment which may affect my deci decision
sion decision to have any tattoo(s)." This is standard procedure. An
additional release form, that has to be notarized, is required
for 16- and 17-year-olds who come in with their parents
which happens more often than one might think.
"I was 16 when I got my first tattoo," Witter says. "My mom
took me to get it, and I've wanted another one ever since."
The stoic ex-gymnast moved to Gainesville from Miami but
was bom in Kingston, Jamaica. Carlson, who used to cook at
Bahn Thai Restaurant, -starts asking her about Jamaican food.
"Well, you're not saying it quite right, but yeah, I've eaten
that," Witter laughs.
Before she leaves, Witter and Carlson discuss the merits
of dapcehall reggae. She walks out laughing, her lower back
bandaged and smeared with antibiotic ointment.
"I like this job because I get to meet so many interesting
people," Carlson says a little later.
NOT DOING THIS TO BE COOL
While Lessard dreams of opening a chain of body-modification
stores offering tanning, dothing and makeup as well as tattoos
and piercing, Carison is looking for the respect of His peers.
"I doubt a tattoo will ever have the respect of a Van Gogh,"
Carlson admits. "Say a tattooist did something as good as
any contemporary painter on someone's skin nobody
would cad him a genius or give him millions of dollars."
In Carlson's work area, next to an "Empire Strikes Back"
movie poster on the wall, hangs a framed credo from Japa Japanese
nese Japanese swordsman Miyamoto Musashi's Book of Five Rings. It
reads in part: "Practice and cultivate the science. Become ac acquainted
quainted acquainted with the art. Know the principles of the craft."
It helps him focus, and reminds him of the value he tries to
give his work.
"I figured out my whole thesis: 'l'm not doing this to be
coot,'" he says. "I guess I just want to bring as much to the art
as I take from it. Not a lot of artists have done that."

Through all kinds of weather, Gator fans have helped give Greg See a better chance at ...

One man goes to his boss and

that is too much money.
"What I give now, someday I'll
get back," the worker, who has
six kids and lives in a trailer, tells
his boss.
This tale in particular strikes
Ferguson. She e-mails it to See as
she does with all the other aston astonishing

help to brighten his days and
show him how people come in a
way immeasurable in dollars.

But I dll cannot wait for Tuesday

Chris Nandor, a Massachusetts native
and computer hacker attempted to help
Nomar Garciaparra beat Derek Jeter in
the voting for starting shortstop by trying

Nandor was caught for the second time

Nomar 14,702 on May 19.
Isn't technology wonderful?
Nandor's votes were not counted and
Nomar won fair and square, I guess. I do

Well, I guess I can auestion them.
It is, after all, a popularity contest. And
since Cleveland has the highest fan

they have four players in the starting

The reserve players are also going to be
a huge change from past years. With 16

Instead of Maddux, Glavine and

It makes no sense.
Then there is Juan Gonzalez, who is
showing his maturity by saying if he
doesn't start, he won't play. Fine. You're a

Bonds gracefully stepped down from,
