Celebrating 33 years of independence

visibly concerned about the duties
of the night shift on Thursday. Oct.

between himself and patrolman Bob
Pearl. the 110pound-or—so officer pa-

This kind of back-and-forth ban-
ter is how UK‘s police officers begin
the night. A quietly optimistic atti-
tude sets in for a group of people
who don’t know what they will see
or what dangers they may en-
counter during the night.

Costigan is an 11—year law en-
forcement veteran. including six
years as a military police officer. or
an MP, in the Marines. Other people
on this shift include Pearl. a fresh-
faced officer named T.J. Doyle. a new
officer in training. Laura Marco and
her partner. Lt. Bill Webb.

10 p.m.: Roll call. Officers pick
cars and make whatever prepara-
tions they need for the night ahead.
including making sure their vehi-
cles are properly maintenanced and
picking up enough forms for the
night to cite drivers and make ar-
rests and reports.

10:42 p.m.: Costigan begins
rolling and decides to start the night
at 10:58 by “running radar" at one of
his favorite places. in the grass off

BAGHDAD. Iraq US. ground
forces fought insurgents on the
outskirts of Fallujah early this
morning. and US. warplanes
pounded the insurgent-held city. as
a full military assault appeared iii-
creasingly imminent.

Iraq‘s interim government an—
nounced yesterday a state of emer-
gency for most of the country

US. commanders have not giv-
en a tirneline for when the major
offensive to retake Fallujah will
start. An A0130 gunsliip raked
the city with 40mm cannon fire
early today. the Associated Press
reported. and explosions from l‘S.
artillery lit up the night sky.

Intermittent artillery
blasted southern neigh»
borhoods of the city. and
orange fireballs rose
above rooftops

The state of emer-
gency was issued by the
interim prime minister.
Ayad Allawi.

The order. which ini-
poses marital law. height-
ened a sense of crisis iii
Iraq and fueled tears that
an offensive in Fallujah
would unleash ii wave of
t‘()llnit‘l‘1liitl(‘kS. which in»
surgents appeared to have already
begun elsewhere in the country.

Violence in six cities in the
past two days has left more than 80
people dead.

“This will send a very powerful
message that we are serious."
Allawi said after meeting with
cabinet ministers who approved
the emergency measure for all ar-
eas of the country except the rela
tivcly peaceful Kurdish northeast

The order will run for 60 days
but could be extended through
elections planned for January.

"We want to secure the country
so elections can be done in a
peaceful way and the Iraqi people
can participate in the elections
freely: without the intimidation by
terrorists and by forces who are
trying to wreck the political
process in Iraq." Allawi said.

“So this is a message. I hope
the terrorists get it because we are
not going to be easy on them."

It was not immediately clear
which emergency powers Allawi
intended to invoke or how they
would help his government assert

control of the country: which he
described as largely calm during a
visit to Washington six weeks ago.

Technically. the state of emer-
gency gives the government wide
powers to impose curfews. restrict
movement and suspend liberties.

But Iraq's security services
have struggled to stand up to in-
surgents who operate with better
weapons and intelligence. espe-
cially in the Sunni Muslim mid-
section of the country where resis-
tance has proved most stubborn.

US. and allied foreign military
forces routinely operate on their
own. making arrests. engaging in
firefights and patrolling indepen-
dent of civil authorities.

Twentytwo police of-

towns west of Fallujah.
and the attackers includ-
ed foreign Arabs. accord-
ing to news reports.

Many of the officers
were lined up and shot,
according to the reports.

The wave of attacks
came as insurgents
vowed to take the battle
across Iraq if 10,000 US.
and lraqi troops proceed with a
threatened offensive against Fallu-
jah. a city that has become a sym~
bol of resistance since it fell under
insurgent control in April.

The assault appeared immi-
nent. US. forces cited Allawi's
emergency decree in announcing
that they had sealed off the city
late yesterday. declaring in a state-
ment that troops were “finishing
final preparations for an assault
on Fallujah."

Senior Marine commanders
gathered troops for hollered pep
talks. invoking the 1968 assault on
the Vietnamese city of Hue. a bat-
tle that looms large in the lore of
the Corps.

“The window is closing. ab-
solutely." Allawi said.

He added that Fallujah resi-
dents “have been taken hostage by
a bunch of terrorists and bandits
and insurgents who were part of
the old regime.

“Our government is deter-
mined to safeguard the lraqé peo-
ple.“ he said. ;

.. 7 73,

By Nathan Thacher
mm IUSlC cmnc‘

If you’re feeling good
about your life. and every-
thing seems to be going your
way. you probably haven‘t
been listening much to Tom

If it‘s cold. gray or rainy
or you‘ve just been dumped.
or you‘re drunk in a dive
somewhere. then please con-
tinue reading ~ because this
album concerns you.

Real Gone. the newest
product of Waits’ prolific 30.
year recording career. echoes
with old blues and jazz. reg-
gae rhythms and rock ‘n‘ roll

~ among many others 4» all
played over remarkably de-
pressing. desolate lyrics about
the perpetual battles of every-
day life.

Waits (vocals/guitar) is
joined by Marc Ribot (guitar).
Larry Taylor and Les Clay-
pool (bass). Casey Waits
(turntables). and Brian
“Brain" Mantia (percussion)
to create songs with groovy
soul and lazy blues tunes,
with Waits' decidedly hellish

waits latst

vocal styles on every track.

On the subject of Tom's
voice: It's going to make you
love his work or hate it. His
voice shapes and takes over
every single track. It‘s impos-
sible to ignore. and it's very
possible you'll toss the disc
out the window of your car
when you hear it.

If you were to cross Louis
Armstrong, Cee-Lo Green.
Stevie Ray Vaughn and say.
Satan. then you‘d have some-
thing close to Waits.

He growls and grumbles
voicelessly. he screeches and
beatboxes. he croons seldom
and a little off-key ,_ it‘s all
hard to listen to at first.

In fact. if you’re unfamil-
iar with his harsh voice. I rec-
ommend skipping the first
two tracks at first and going
straight to “Sins of My Fa»
their." “How’s It Gonna End“
or “Green Grass." If you give
it time. his vocals become
more endearing and enjoy-
able. You‘ll relax. and you‘ll
start to hear all of the other
instruments playing behind
his voice.

depressing as ever

In this same vein. the
lyrics are very well done. if
not a little repetitive. and they
work to create very specific
imagery set iii loud smoky
bars. deserted farmlands. and
dark creaky harbors with bal-
lads like “The Day After To-
morrow" and “Dead and
Lovely" These songs are full
of poetic melancholy and
longing. and they showcase
Waits' amazing talent with

This imagery really is
much more potent depending
on your mood and mindset. as
previously mentioned. If
you're happy. you‘ll become
sad 7 but if you're sad to be-
gin with. afterward. you‘ll not
care about being sad at all.
The system works?

And the styles. tones and
rhythms. I should mention.
vary pretty widely from track
to track. “Metropolitan
Glide." “Baby Gonna Leave
Me" and "Top of the Hill“ are
a little quicker and more up—
beat and. if you happen to be
in a bar. you might feel in-
clined to get up and dance

Real Gone was released Oct. 5
badly These songs pack more
of a wallop, but it never gets
too noisy or busy to enjoy all
of the sounds at play

If you're a longtime Waits
listener. you're going to hear a
lot of the same basic songs he
used in albums like Blood
Money and Mule Variations.
though the piano is strangely
absent in Real Gone. To some»
one who hasn't listened to a
lot of older blues and jazz like
Louis Armstrong and Miles
Davis. this album will have a
very unique sound that will
be either loved or hated.

and ex-wife Pamela Anderson
were nowhere in sight. The
incident didn‘t even wind up
on Entertainment Tonight.

Lee was late to a photo
shoot at a friend‘s house high
in the Hollywood Hills on a
rainy morning when he
crossed the line ~— literally
He was nailed by a Los Ange-
les police officer for going
over the white line at a boule-
vard stop. Worse. he wasn‘t
driving his own car ~~ he‘d
borrowed a friend‘s car.

“Dude. that cop was really
workin’ me." Lee said when
he finally stepped inside the
house. clutching a ticket. But
instead of displaying traces
of his fabled bad temper that
has landed him in brawls
with his ex-wife. jail and

he was all smiles. He wished

ticket off to the car‘s owner.
jovially admitting. “Dude. I
don‘t even know what to do
with this!"

But those in the room
who feared that a pod from
Incasion of the Body Snatch-
ers may have taken over Lee
minutes later got a bit of re-
assurance that Lee had not
abandoned all of his outra-
geous tendencies. With some
encouragement. he lifted his
shirt to proudly display the
ornate tattoo on his stomach
that best sums up his last 20
years: “Mayhem."

He‘s long been one of
rocks baddest boys. starting
at age 17. when he first
hooked up with heavy metal
group Motley Criie through
his high-profile marriage to
actress Heather Locklear and
his later stormy union with
Anderson through the tragic
drowning of a child in his
swimming pool. But now Lee
has embarked on a mission to
leave the hard-driving life on
stage and not incorporate it
into his life.

Lee says he's using the
"real valuable tools" be ac

quired in anger management
class to deal with life and em-
ploys a “life coach." Gerald

earnest about this endeavor.

a camera crew chronicling
his back-to—school adventures
for an NBC unscripted series
airing next year

"It’s all part of the turn-
ing point." he said recently

“I‘ve done nothing I‘m
ashamed of.

"But I‘m cranking it down
a few notches."

“Tommyland” is the first
step. The title was inspired by
the impromptu carnival An-
derson concocted to celebrate
one of Lee‘s birthdays.

The tome is Lee‘s candid
take on the numerous
episodes that turned him
from rock group drummer to
tabloid icon.

He felt that everyone in
the media had weighed in on
his life: he illustrates his
point in typically unsubtle
fashion on the back cover of
“Tommyland.” which fea.
