Pulled post

Thursday, September 15th, 2005

I just deleted an entry. Saved it in drafts, though.


Tuesday, September 13th, 2005

Via Crooks and Liars‘s entry, Bush Supporters Question Iraq War Tactics, here’s a link to an article by Paul Craig Roberts — who is not a leftist. Roberts published an article on Sept.6, 2005 called Impeach Bush Now. It’s available on Creators, which represents syndicated columnists. Creators is not some liberal-lefty hotbed, as this complaint […]

During hiatus, the nostalgia crept in

Sunday, September 11th, 2005

It might be that anniversary in history, but I need a break from seriousness. And what better fix than …nostalgia? ‘Twas on a lovely August evening during my “vacation” month a few weeks back, before hurricanes and Brownies blighted the landscape — it was a Thursday, in fact (I always did get the hang of […]

Politics is dead. Run for office.

Thursday, September 8th, 2005

Maybe I should have been glad about not getting tv — it actually allowed me to live in a bubble of sorts — but now I see all the relevant tv news snippets on One good move, and they hurt. For example, this latest gem: a news guy verbally sparring with some ass from the […]

Climate change and Katrina

Thursday, September 8th, 2005

Somewhere recently I read that “The hurricane that struck Louisiana (…) was nicknamed Katrina by the National Weather Service. Its real name is global warming.” Turns out that was from an article by Ross Gelbspan in the Aug.31 edition of the Boston Globe. It’s copied on Winnipeg’s Indymedia site. Gelbspan itemises a litany of climate […]

Media. Landscape.

Monday, September 5th, 2005

Although I don’t get tv, I managed to catch up on some crucial items via Crooks and Liars on Sunday. For anyone who hasn’t seen these, watch and make up your own mind. Two that stood out: The Shep Smith and Geraldo duo live on the Hannity/Colmes show (Fox, Friday), permalink to the video clip […]

Social justice, continued

Saturday, September 3rd, 2005

About that social justice thing I’ve been on about in the last coupla entries… Check out the New York Times’s In Manhattan, Poor Make 2¢ for Each Dollar to the Rich by Sam Roberts. Yowza. Does anyone think this is sustainable? Even tv (the opiate of the masses) conks out at some point — in […]

Come up for air, stand up for air

Saturday, September 3rd, 2005

Via Dave Pollard, a link to a video by DJ Paul Edge called We Will Not Be Silenced. Check it out. Justice. I think it was while reading around on the links provided by Dave Pollard’s readers that I came across the notion that Hurricane Katrina could be the environmental movement’s “9/11,” in the sense […]

Toronto Star editorial on Katrina aftermath

Friday, September 2nd, 2005

The following is from an article by Rosie DiManno in today’s TorontoStar. The Star requires registration, which might keep people from reading DiManno’s article, hence I’m quoting it. This is how America is seen abroad: an emerging third world nation. Here’s the article, in full: Tales of woe shame a nation ROSIE DIMANNO NEW ORLEANS […]
