Bolton's nomination considered by Foreign Policy In Focus.

Wolfowitz, his history up until the time he was handed the Pentagon from Foreign Policy In Focus.

Thanks to Helen, I've learned that the Administration propaganda videos aren't shown by the national media as such, they're shown by "local affiliates" to fill (as I've said repeatedly) expensive air-time with free product. And she puts some of the blame for the misinformation dissemination where it belongs...with the media. (Reconsidering my position, I now also firmly believe that it's the government's obligation to mark the material as being produced by them. A little bug, like those annoying network identification bugs, that stays on-screen for the entire run of the "report" would work. But mostly, I still blame the media. If they're going to use the stuff, they really do have an obligation to say where it came from.)

The transition from a Big Business economy to one where the employees organized...and had the power. And then, the move to transition back, from The Multinational Monitor.

Bonus: The military-industrial complex.

(Actually the current issue is packed with good stuff.)

Shorter....

Republicans reach out to minority students and students decline to be reached.

When did this website come back to life? I recall trying here a month or two ago and I could have sworn it was down.

I'm pleased to see you're writing again.

Sometimes I'm writing, sometimes I'm quiet, sometimes I'm breaking the blog. :) You probably caught me on one of those days.

Thanks!
