Thanks for posting, LR. I like the material included in the article about the Parker case. The Williams poem has always seemed extraordinary to me. I'll add Emily Dickinson's definition of poetry here, one of my favorites: (paste) "If I read a book and it makes my whole body so cold no fire can ever...

That's a good website, Jim. Thanks for posting this. It's so ironic that the non-white contingent in the BUSHKO murder mill is just as tainted as the Caucs. Elevate a black woman to Sec'y of State and what does she fight for? A dumb rich kid from Texas who thinks Africa is a country. Meanwhile, the ...

A POSITIVE SUGGESTION OR TWO

Some good commentary, and positive recommendations from a woman who works for peace and tolerance. Her response to the horror, murder and lies of BUSHKO is refreshing. After reading bonhonato's tolerance postings, I thought of this article: http://www.commondreams.org/archive/2007/11/20/5352/ The co...

Triva bit: ( interesting to me-- a person who knows nothing of the Harry Potter books, but who saw the first movie-- at a friend's prompting . . .) Michael Gambon, who plays Dumbledore, is heterosexual . . . Sir Ian McKellan, who was offered the role but turned it down, is openly gay . . . ( link-- ...

TRADOC and new war deployments for U.S. soldiers

Haven't been to war yet, soldier? You're about to get on the plane for Iraq. The story: ( in ARMY TIMES) http://www.armytimes.com/news/2007/11/army_allfight_071118p/ I particularly like the general's comment that "wearing a shoulder patch . . ." will "lend credibility" to the combat situation . . . ...

I was drafted for Vietnam in 1965, and two subsequent times also. The third time they discovered I have only one functioning eye. I do not exaggerate. And that discovery depended on a Major who happened to be hanging around the Oakland Afees Induction Center. One of my good friends had already gone ...

War resisters-- 200 of them-- have fled to Canada since the Iraq War started . . .

God save the Queen! ( You, m'dear) I've got to buy one of these little bookies. Glad to be of service. Best to you and LR-- and I'll be around soon. I'm headed to the monastery for my annual retreat.

A fine little skit, LR.

EVE OF DESTRUCTION ( Scott Ritter)

My favorite Iraq ( and other) war truth-teller, ex-marine Col. Scott Ritter and U.N. Chief Weapons Inspector, has written another fine overview. This one catches the hubris, the swollen, misshapen U.S. ( and Cheney-warped) version of Iraq, Iran, and the world to come. Anyone remember the old song," ...
