• We can't quit medical marijuana

• Gavin Newsom is expected to need a lot of facelifts

• After 30 years of mind-numbing work for the city, living a long and unhealthy life is the best revenge

• Turns out health care reform was a terrible idea

• We didn't ban toys in Happy Meals soon enough

• This one guy, Fred, keeps having to go to the emergency room

• The GOP is poisoning our water

• Zombies

• Politicians who can't say no to the unions who don't really love them

Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
