"We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies. Forgiveness is not an occasional act; it is a permanent attitude."  - Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

None Dare Call It Stolen: Ohio, the election, and America's servile press by Mark Crispin Miller, 8/05

"On January 5, 2005 Representative John Conyers of Michigan, the ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, released Preserving Democracy: What Went Wrong in Ohio. The report was the result of a five-week investigation by the committee’s Democrats, who reviewed thousands of complaints of fraud, malfeasance, or incompetence surrounding the election in Ohio, and further thousands of complaints that poured in by phone and email as word of the inquiry spread. The congressional researchers were assisted by volunteers in Ohio who held public hearings in Columbus, Cleveland, Toledo, and Cincinnati, and questioned more than two hundred witnesses. (Although they were invited, Republicans chose not to join in the inquiry.)

Preserving Democracy describes three phases of Republican chicanery: the run-up to the election, the election itself, and the post-election cover-up. The wrongs exposed are not mere dirty tricks (though Bush/Cheney also went in heavily for those) but specific violations of the U.S. and Ohio constitutions, the Voting Rights Act, the Civil Rights Act of 1968, the National Voter Registration Act, and the Help America Vote Act. Although Conyers trod carefully when the report came out, insisting that the crimes did not affect the outcome of the race (a point he had to make, he told me, “just to get a hearing”), his report does “raise grave doubts regarding whether it can be said that the Ohio electors selected on December 13, 2004, were chosen in a manner that conforms to Ohio law, let alone Federal requirements and constitutional standards.” The report cites “massive and unprecedented voter irregularities and anomalies” throughout the state—wrongs, moreover, that were hardly random accidents. “In many cases,” the report says, “these irregularities were caused by intentional misconduct and illegal behavior, much of it involving Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell, the co-chair of the Bush-Cheney campaign in Ohio."

Truth and Duty: The Press, the President, and the Privilege of Power, Mary Mapes, St. Martin's Press, 11/2005

"A riveting account of how the public's right to know is being attacked by an unholy alliance among politicians, news organizations and corporate America, from the producer at the heart of the 60 Minutes/George Bush National Guard controversy.

For twenty five years, Mary Mapes has been an award-winning television producer and reporter—the last fifteen of them for CBS News, principally for the CBS Evening News with Dan Rather and 60 Minutes. She had the bedrock of respect of her peers—in the last year alone, she broke the story of the Abu Ghraib prison tortures (which won CBS The Peabody Award) and the existence of Strom Thurmond's illegitimate bi-racial daughter Essie Mae Washington. But it was Dan Rather's lightning rod of a story on George W. Bush's National Guard Service that brought Mapes into an unwanted limelight. The firestorm that followed the broadcast led not only to Mapes' firing and Rather's stepping down from his anchor chair a year early, but to an unprecedented "internal" inquiry into the story—chaired by former Reagan Attorney General Richard Thornburgh.

Peopled with an historic and colorful cast of characters—from Karl Rove to Summer Redstone to John Kerry to Col. Bobby Hodges—this groundbreaking book about how the news is made (and unmade) will make news when it appears this fall. But this, it turns out, is only part of the story. Mapes talks for the first time about the riveting behind-the-scenes action at CBS during this frenzied period and exposes some of the largest political and social controversies that have broken in this new age of dissonance."

"Into the Buzzsaw: Leading Journalists Expose the Myth of a Free Press,"
Edited by Kristina Borjesson Foreword by Gore Vidal

“If members of the general public read this book, or even portions of it, they will be appalled. To the uninitiated reader, the accounts of what goes on behind the scenes at major news organizations are shocking.” - Publisher’s Weekly; See also: Paraview Literary Agency.

"The three largest local phone companies control 83 percent of home telephone lines. The top two long distance carriers control 67 percent of that market. The four biggest cellular phone companies have 64 percent of the wireless market. The five largest cable companies pipe programming to 74 percent of the cable subscribers nationwide. Those findings come from the Center for Public Integrity’s unprecedented examination of the telecommunications industry, the centerpiece of which is a first-of-its-kind, 65,000 record, searchable database containing ownership information on virtually every radio station, television station, cable television system and telephone company in America."  The Center for Public Integrity, Well Connected web site.

"...The Issue is Whether we Want to Live in a Free Society or Whether we Want to Live Under What Amounts to a form of Self-Imposed Totalitarianism, with the Bewildered Herd Marginalized, Directed Elsewhere, Terrified, Screaming Patriotic Slogans, Fearing for Their Lives, and Admiring with Awe the Leader who Saved them from Destruction, While the Educated Masses Goose-Step on Command and Repeat the Slogans They're Supposed to Repeat and the Society Deteriorates at Home. We End Up Serving as a Mercenary Enforcer State, Hoping That others are Going to Pay Us to Smash Up the World." - From: Media Control: The Spectacular Achievements of Propaganda, by Noam Chomsky, Seven Stories Press, 10/2002

"From what we get, we can make a living, what we give, however, makes a life."

"I could never forgive myself if I elected to live without humane purpose, without trying to help the poor and unfortunate, without recognizing that perhaps the purest joy in life, comes with trying to help others."

"The absence of coherent national health care policy is, in my opinion, one of the major disgraces of American life. Greed should not blind doctors to the devastating effect of the absence of such a policy on the American poor and middle class."

"I think that the illness is a good thing in some ways. I wouldn't want to do it again. But the time away from cycling and the time to think about what's really important in life was great. I've come back with a new perspective and a whole new list of priorities."-  Lance Armstrong after his July, 1999 victory in the 86th Tour de France. In 1996, he was diagnosed with with testicular cancer and was told by doctors it had spread to his lungs and brain. He had surgery to remove a testicle and lesions from his brain and underwent months of chemotherapy. Today, his doctors say there is a tiny chance the cancer will return.

The First Casualty of War is Truth

"War's cost is exacting. It destroys families. It leaves behind a wasteland, irreconcilable grief. It is a disease, and in the night air I smell its contagion. Justice is not at issue here: war consumes the good along with the wicked. There will be no stopping it. Pity will be banished. Fear will rule. It is the old lie again, told to children desperate for glory: Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori (It is sweet and fitting to die for one's country)."- "A Gaza Diary- Scenes from the Palestinian Uprising," by Chris Hedges. See also, "War is a Force That Gives Us Meaning," by Chris Hedges.

"...A war memorial that attempted to depict the reality of war would be too subversive. It would condemn us and our capacity for evil. It would show that the line between the victim and the victimizer is razor-thin, that human beings, when the restraints are cut, are intoxicated by mass killing, and that war, rather than being noble, heroic and glorious, obliterates all that is tender, decent and kind. It would tell us that the celebration of national greatness is the celebration of our technological capacity to kill. It would warn us that war is always morally depraved, that even in “good” wars such as World War II all can become war criminals. We dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The Nazis ran the death camps. But this narrative of war is unsettling. It does not create a collective memory that serves the interests of those who wage war and permit us to wallow in self-exaltation..." - From Chris Hedges, Celebrating Slaughter: War and Collective Amnesia, 10/5/2009

"We’re in the midst of a somewhat muted arms race, not with the Soviet Union but with the rest of the world. We’re busily trying to fabricate enemies. We shift from the North Koreans, and then we’re engaging with Iraq and Iran again, and then we take a shot at Libya. We wait for any of these people to raise their heads up and we’re ready to go against them. This means nuclear weapons. We had 600 warheads in the Gulf during the Iraq War, and if American troops would have died there in considerable numbers, we would’ve used those warheads. That’s why they were there."  1996 Interview with Phillip Berrigan by Matthew Rothschild, The Progressive.

And one morning all that was burning,
one morning the bonfires
leapt out of the earth
devouring human beings
and from then on fire,
gunpowder from then on,
and from then on blood.
Bandits with planes and Moors,
bandits with finger-rings and duchesses,
bandits with black friars spattering blessings
came through the sky to kill children
and the blood of children ran through the streets
without fuss, like children's blood.

Jackals that the jackals would despise
stones that the dry thistle would bite on and spit out,
vipers that the vipers would abominate.

Face to face with you I have seen the blood
of Spain tower like a tide
to drown you in one wave
of pride and knives.

see my dead house,
look at broken Spain:
from every house burning metal flows
instead of flowers
from every socket of Spain
Spain emerges
and from every dead child a rifle with eyes
and from every crime bullets are born
which will one day find
the bull's eye of your hearts.

And you will ask: why doesn't his poetry
speak of dreams and leaves
and the great volcanoes of his native land.

Come and see the blood in the streets.
Come and see
the blood in the streets.
Come and see the blood
in the streets!-  Pablo Neruda, 'I'm Explaining a Few Things," a viceral description of the bombing of civilians, quoted from Harold Pinter's Nobel Lecture,2005.

Vermont Guardian
"Less than two decades ago, Vermonters
could pick up a newspaper and expect solid
reporting from a locally owned business with
stakes in the community. But as Vermont led
the way toward social and political progress in
the United States, its media outlets moved in
the opposite direction, falling victim to corporate
consolidation taking shape at the national level.
Out-of-state conglomerates have bought many
of the best dailies. In attempts to keep pace
with these fierce new competitors, other Vermont
papers have cut staffing and squeezed news space
to make room for more advertising." The Vermont
Guardian will stand in stark contrast to this trend.
Through our weekly newspaper and daily Web site,
we will provide an independent perspective with a
commitment to credible investigations, & provocative
& informative stories that others either miss or
choose to ignore. Too often, today's media cast
coverage in a political rather than a human light.
Stories and subjects are tagged as "left" or "right,"
ignoring the subtleties and nuances that define Vermont.

The Yes Men
"The Yes Men are a genderless, loose
knit association of some three hundred
impostors worldwide. Their feeling today
can be summed up in one simple phrase:
Good Office Environment.

Although their name contains the word
"Men," it doesn't describe who they are,
it describes what they do: they use any
means necessary to agree their way into
the fortified compounds of commerce,
ask questions, and then smuggle
out the stories of their undercover
escapades to provide a public glimpse
at the behind-the-scenes world of business."

Independent monthly magazine dedicated
to resisting injustice, defending against
repression, & creating liberty. It sees the
racial, gender, class, & political dimensions
of personal life as fundamental to understanding
& improving contemporary circumstances;
& it aims to assist activist efforts for a
better future.
