The official website for Randy Queen's DARKCHYLDE

Randy Queen is a friend of Bekah's, who just contacted
me wanting to join Bekah's yahoo group. He wrote me a beautiful email sharing
the nature of his and Bekah's relationship, and how
he was down south when she died and just made it up the
hill for the reception following bekah's funeral.

Bekah's picture at the wall in Sacramento. Among, I
don't know, hundreds i guess, pictures of victims, there she was. When I saw her there [i knew she
would be there, i sent in the photo for that purpose],
i was overcome. And I intend to share more about the trip, but am just a bit too exhausted right this second.

Here's a shot of the wall that included Bek's picture:

i still remember my first; it was the hollywood palladium, and the lineup was boz scaggs,
fleetwood mac, and steve miller. this before
they all hit much bigger.

j geils band - jethro tull - rod stewart - laura nyro -
bette midler - jerry garcia band - mark tanner - new
riders of the purple sage - john stewart - marshall tucker - george harrison - the whispers - harold melvin
and the bluenotes - marley festival - aswad - crowded
house - rush - yes - george carlin - oingo boingo - humble pie -

i had tickets to van morrison but it was canceled.

i went to the california jam, the west coast's
answer to woodstock...and what else? can't think now. david lindley
[i always loved his "werewolves of london" the best]

but thanks for the memories. :)

Victims of Violent Crime Week April 23-30 2006
Active.com | City of Los Angeles 5K Run/Walk for Victims' Rights

for the first time since my daughter Bekah's murder on 7/19/01,
I'll be participating in the March
on the Capital
taking place Monday in Sacramento.

I'll be wearing my marching shoes, too - the same shoes
my girl was taken out of when her killer mowed her down...

remember my girl and all victims next week, if you get a moment?

If there's a leak out of my administration, I want to
\know who it is,
so said gw in feb 2004, when the criminal investigation
into who outed a covert cia operative was launched.

now, i ask bush supporters: HOW CAN you Stand this president
and his LIES!?

hasn't he lied enough yet to convince you that he is bad
for our country, our democracy, this government that is
supposed to by, for, and of the people, and is growing
rapidly into a government that is only by, for, and of

i hope someone will respond, i really do, because i really
would like to know how anybody justifies continuing to support
this bastard with the incontrovertible evidence of his
repeated lies, to us, the people he is sworn to serve.
