This rant was first performed Oct. 20 at San Francisco's Edinburgh Castle at a party hosted by Kevin Williamson and Angeline Ferguson of Rebel Inc. -- original U.K. publishers of the novel "Trainspotting."

Boulware uses snippets of actual TV,, radio and Web site news about the Sept. 11 attacks in what the bar's Web site called his "staccato rhythmic roll" that "snared the drifting uneasiness that has befallen the country since Osama's men kicked off."

"Standing before an America: Open for Business poster, he barked satire with reflection and added spices of quiet patriotism," the site continued. "Thoughtful, and rejecting the corporate mullahs' call of Shop to Defeat Terrorism, Boulware proved he is an emerging national voice that is destined to get louder."

Boulware is a San Francisco resident and former "Naked World" columnist for Salon.
