Howard Zinn & 'The NN-phant in the Room'
07 Jul 2006
The huge omnivorous herd consumes everywhere on our earth as much as it can grab, and tramples millions of human beings to death. That doesn't seem to matter. The 'elephant boys' don't speak about the bloody pulp underneath the feet of the big animals: instead they give'm a bath in the mainstream.

The Ancient Redwoods: Witnesses to a Fading Republic
06 Jul 2006
The Ancient Redwoods are older by centuries than the American Republic itself. They are found only in the northwest coastal region of the nation.

06 Jul 2006
Three US Supreme Court justices filed dissenting opinions in last week’s 5-3 ruling in the case of Hamdan v. Rumsfeld, which rejected President Bush’s military commissions at the Guantánamo Bay prison camp.
All three dissenters—Clarence Thomas, Antonin Scalia and Samuel Alito—supported the administration’s claim to virtually unlimited presidential powers. A fourth, Chief Justice John Roberts, recused himself from the high court proceedings because, in his previous capacity as a federal appeals court judge, he had already supported the administration’s position in the Hamdan case.

Media Non-Event of 6/26/2006
06 Jul 2006
An important story was buried by the mainstream media last week: the 6/26 Senate Democrats hearing on Pre-Iraq War Intelligence. I offer this analysis of the media non-coverage of that damning (ergo, ignored) event.
