    Singer’s 2010 rider demands recycled toilet paper, offers promoters “greening” tips

    AUGUST 11--Touring the United States and Europe this year, Sheryl Crow arrives at venues with an assortment of environmental demands certain to vex concert promoters, according to a review of the musician’s 2010 backstage rider.

    The document, excerpted here, actually has a 2-1/2 page “environmental portion” to be “strictly followed and policed.” Seeking to “minimize the overall environmental impact of our tour,” Crow demands that only biodegradable cups and dinnerware be used by the caterer. Produce should be “organic and purchased from local suppliers as much as possible.” And for the five backstage “watering stations,” water “must be sourced from a local spring water vendor.”

    According to Crow’s rider, her tour party travels between gigs in two 45-foot buses, while her equipment is packed into two tractor-trailers.

    Crow, 48, also offers promoters “venue greening suggestions.” She wants “traditional light bulbs” swapped out for compact fluorescent bulbs in “all offices, dressing rooms and common areas.” “Eco-friendly cleaning and bathroom products” and “post-consumer recycled toilet paper and paper towel” should also be used. Crow’s rider also notes that, “We strongly encourage you to use renewable sources and/or to buy sustainable energy credits where possible. Many local utilities offer ‘green power’ as an option--please check with yours and opt in.”

    The document also details how Crow’s backstage hospitality room is to be stocked. The singer needs an assortment of “biodegradable non-petroleum cups” and 24 “disposable napkins made of 100% recycled fiber.” Crow’s rider also lists a wide variety of drinks and snacks that she needs, including organic coconut water and two bottles of Cabernet Sauvignon (“Sheryl’s Favorite” is Stag’s Leap Artemis). Two “good quality, dark, organic chocolate bars” are described as “***VERY IMPORTANT***”

    Sheryll Crowe is as green as her boyfriend is clean. Sorry, Bubba.
    I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad

    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

    Here's some real disappointing green news for conservatives:

    One of my coworkers just tried to sell me Amway products, and gave me a pitch about how all their home cleaning products are now "green".

    I told her that as I was from Grand Rapids, I trust nothing associated with that company except their hotel.

    It doesn't disappoint me and I'm conservative. Amway is a Ponzi scheme.

    I thought it was a pyramid scheme?

    Eh, it's a scheme either way. Those Amway people are also rather scarey from the ones I have met.
    Liberals are proof that evolution is only a theory. Nothing that stupid could evolve past a monkey.
