The Public Stoning of Martha Stewart: A Lifting of the Veil

Members of the mainstream press flew into Martha Stewart with more than their usual viciousness following her setting out as a political victim. Having nothing substantial to use against her, they have given negative connotations to her success, mocked the domestic skills upon which she has built her life’s work, twisted what she said and misquoted her, and made hateful remarks that could not have gotten past the editor in the days of ethical media practices. . . .

November 3rd Nationwide Day of Action

Over 30 cities across the nation are mobilizing for a time of popular outrage and widespread non-cooperation if Bush is elected, if the elections are canceled, or if there is overt election fraud again. No matter who wins, we will be uniting to open up a new political space to define democracy as grassroots and participatory.

What if on the day after the presidential election people from all walks of life across America mobilized in their communities to go beyond voting and demonstrate our visions for a truy democratic society? Because the crisis of our democracy did not start with Bush and won't end with Kerry, the Beyond Voting campaign is calling for our election year debate to expand beyond Democrats versus Republicans to the larger issue of whether the U.S. will be a Democracy or an Empire. No matter who wins, we will be uniting to open up a new political space to define democracy as grassroots and participatory.

Prevent the Theft of our Election

New Info proves that Central Tabulating Computers have modems connected and are open to manipulation. ie- all this stuff about vote challengers is just a diversion, because one person can change the state total from their home computer. Take the day off of work to help save our country. Yeah sure conspiracy nuts- they can’t steal it- wrong. We now have evidence that certainly looks like altering a computerized voting system during a real election, and it happened just six weeks ago.

Concerned citizens around the country need to get off their duffs and do something to save our country. Namely go down to their polling places and ask that the modems be disconnected. Take a zoom camera and take pictures for evidence.

Fidel Castro and the Cuban Revolution

When I was very young, I remember my family taking my uncle to Logan International Airport in Boston. One side of the Sumner Tunnel had been blocked to traffic due to security situations, because Fidel Castro was due to be passing through at any moment. This was the very day that he made his famous speech at Harvard University.

One city, many worlds - Miami Journal #3

It's Halloween evening, and Miami Beach is bustling with twenty-something party-goers and parents shepherding their costumed children through pastures of candy. The Democratic Party office on Lincoln Road, a glitzy pedestrian mall traversing the island, has its doors flung wide open, rainbow-colored Kerry/Edwards propaganda spilling out onto the sidewalk.

Downtown Miami, by contrast, was dead silent by the time I left the ACT office on Biscayne Blvd at dusk. Vacant lots, empty homes and office buildings, and new construction sites make for a dismal landscape of urban decay and impending gentrification. Developers are trying to extend the flashy atmosphere of Miami Beach to downtown, catering to upscale young professionals that might possibly want to live where they work. But for now, most everyone who can afford to lives away from downtown, and far from Overtown, the adjoining historically Black neighborhood.
