Subject: [Lucy K News] Lucy Kaplansky Update 3/01

Hi guys! Hope spring is actually warm where you are, it's absolutely freezing here in New York.

I'm almost finished with my new album. My pals Jennifer Kimball and Richard Shindell each recorded the most gorgeous harmonies last week, and I'm still planning to get a couple of more friends to sing harmonies in the next couple of weeks. And we had Jon Herington come in and play some electric guitar last week, and what he played was absolutely stunning, and worked perfectly with what Duke Levine and Larry Campbell had already played. I even started joking that I'd have to call the album "Guitar Gods" because those guys were all so amazing. We're still planning for an August or September release.

(Larry Campbell, by the way, was on the Academy Awards playing guitar with Bob Dylan, he was the one standing to the left of Dylan, and he looked like such a rock star.)

Here's a first in my life: I'm now a character in a comic strip. There's a guy in Madison, WI who writes a daily comic strip in a U. of Wisconsin paper, and he's made me part of it. He's got a website, so you can actually see me (I'm in a bunch of them, but I know I'm in March 23-25 if you look in his archives). And it really looks like me!

I made a guest appearance at Richard Shindell's show in Mamaroneck, NY when he was taping for a live album with his band. We actually sang a Bruce Springsteen song ("Fourth of July, Asbury Park") which I practically forced Richard to sing because I wanted to sing the harmony, and we sang a lot of other stuff, and I heard the tape the next day it sounds awesome.

A lot of people have asked where they can find guitar chords for my songs. I don't have any thing published, but here's some web sites that have some of them written out:

I sang harmony on John Gorka's beautiful new album, "The Company You Keep", which was just released a couple of weeks ago. Also, I've been told that the Bryan Ferry album I sang on will be released in September.

And the Bob Dylan tribute album that I'm on will be out in May, but I'll have copies to sell in the next few weeks (I sang "It Ain't Me Babe", one of my all-time favorite songs). Others on the album include Greg Brown, John Gorka, Cliff Eberhardt, Suzzy and Maggie Roche, and Eliza Gilkyson (who's fantastic, by the way, if you haven't heard her).

Anyway, here's where I'll be in the next few weeks:

4/27 Wilde Auditorium, W. Hartford, CT
(860) 768-4228
4/28 Stamford Center for the Arts, Stamford, CT
(203) 358-2305
4/29 Iron Horse Music Hall, Northampton, MA
(413) 586-8686
5/3 Cecile Goldman Theater, Washington, D.C.
(800) 494-8497
5/19 The Bottom Line, New York, NY
(212) 228-6300 this is a co-bill w/the great Buddy and Julie Miller, and I'll have my band

That's it for now. Thanks again for all the wonderful e-mails!

Love, Lucy

Subject: Cruise to Clean Up Corruption

Dear Friend and Supporter:

From May 12 through May 20, 2001, Judicial Watch is embarking upon its annual "Cruise to Clean Up Corruption." This voyage aboard Holland America's MS Maasdam will be a fantastic journey filled with fascinating, never-before-told tales and stories from not only Tom Fitton and me, but our clients and guests.

With regard to Judicial Watch, we will give an account of what has gone on through the last eight years such as you have never heard.

Gennifer Flowers, one of the Clintons' female victims who alerted the world to Bill Clinton, will detail not only her own sad relationship with the former President and Mrs. Clinton, but will also entertain us in the ship's lounge. As you may know, Gennifer is an accomplished singer.

Jack Daly, the Navy Lieutenant Commander who was attacked by Russian lasers over Puget Sound, will fill us in on his saga in fighting against Russian infiltrators on U.S. territory.

Donato Dalrymple, the "Fisherman," will explain his religious experience in saving Elian Gonzalez and his legal struggle to hold Janet Reno and the entire Clinton Administration accountable for the crimes they committed against not only little Elian but the entire Little Havana community.

Morgan Brittany, famous movie actress and Judicial Watch supporter, and who formerly played the girlfriend of J.R. Ewing on the TV hit show, "Dallas," will fill us in on how conservatives exist in Hollywood, as well as her many experiences in fending off J.R. Ewing ­ a Clinton clone.

Paul Rodriguez, the loquacious and amusing managing editor of Insight Magazine and the person who uncovered more scandals during the Clinton-Gore years except for Judicial Watch (i.e., Paul exposed the sale of graves at Arlington National Cemetery for campaign contributions, as well as the early seeks of the e-mail scandal), will entertain in his usual "no holds barred" manner.

Jane Chastain, renowned columnist, the first female television sportscaster (for the Miami Dolphins), and co-anchor of The Judicial Watch Report radio show, will provide perspective on the political events of today and what it means to be a religious conservative.

Finally, Rev. Bob Rieth, my own personal pastor and founder of Media Fellowship International, will not only give us his views on the decline of ethics today in America, but how we can bring back a revival. And, for those who would like to participate, Rev. Rieth will hold Bible study classes aboard ship.

The Judicial Watch "Cruise to Clean Up Corruption" is something that most other groups have never attempted and would not dare to try, using such a wide range of speakers and clients. Last year's event was a rousing success, and many are returning.

In addition to travel to Playa del Carmen, Mexico, and Ocho Rios, Jamaica, Judicial WatchOs band of merry men and women will leave a flag in Georgetown, Grand Caman Island. By the time we are done, we will have renamed this tropical island, the "Grand Klayman Island."

Last but not least, start dieting right away because the food on these cruises is fantastic. The "Cruise to Clean Up Corruption"will be an adventure to remember!

We can't wait to see you. Bring your friends and family.


Larry Klayman
Chairman and General Counsel
