SAGITTARIUS

(NOV. 22 – DEC. 21)

Peace, dude. Sagittarius is the hippie of the Zodiac. This intellectual, yet jovial, archer is a laid-back, warm and friendly freedom-lover. Sagittarius has probably been voted Most Likely to Wear a Flower in Their Hair, Most Likely to Still Play Vinyl or Most Likely to Make Millions off a Business Started for Fun in Their Garage. Far Out! All that good-lovin karma comes back to you thrice, ya dig?

Sagittarians also are known as the philosophical Zodiac sign. Well, heres something to ponder, Sagittarius. Sagittarians are ruled by their hips and thighs; and their ruling planet, Jupiter, claims Ganymede as one of its four moons which just happens to be the largest moon in our solar system. See the connection? Now, that will get ya philosophizin.


TELECOM SAGITTARIUS

KEVIN MARTIN (DEC. 14, 1966)

Our Telecom Sagittarian is FCC Chairman Kevin Martin, who was nominated to be a commissioner by President Bush in April 2001, and promoted to FCC chairman in March 2005, to replace Michael K. Powell. A North Carolinian, born and raised, Martin obtained a B.A. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (where he was elected student body president), a masters degree in public policy from Duke University, and a J.D. from Harvard Law School. He is a member of the Florida Bar, District of Columbia Bar and the Federal Communications Bar Association. Before joining the FCC, Martin was a special assistant to the president for economic policy. Martin also served on the Bush-Cheney transition team and was deputy general counsel for Bushs presidential campaign. Martin previously was an adviser to FCC Commissioner Harold Furchtgott-Roth and also worked in the Office of the Independent Counsel. Martin, a new father, is married to Catherine Jurgensmeyer Martin, who used to work for Vice President Dick Cheney, and now serves as deputy assistant to the president and deputy White House communications director for policy and planning. It seems that lately, though, most of Martins time has been spent presiding over higher-profile marriages. Just like a real wedding, the guests will go home empty-handed with bouts of post-party depression, as the happy couple frolics off to enjoy the honeymoon. Mr. Martin, will you be around for awhile? This party left a big mess and we need help cleaning it up.
