Political Interlude

This USA Statement of Interest is a must read (in .pdf format) if you are remotely interested in and value the freedom of the Internet. It was filed yesterday, April 28, 2006.
Government Moves to Intervene in AT&T Surveillance Case
The United States government filed a "Statement of Interest" Friday in the Electronic Frontier Foundation's (EFF's) class-action lawsuit against AT&T, announcing that the government would "assert the military and state secrets privilege" and "intervene to seek dismissal" of the case.
Today I found The Elephant's Ass, a blog that contains shocking graphics of information kept from the American public since the current administration has been in power. If you are squeamish or object to reality, then stay away from Michael's blog. Its content is sickening but all too true. Photos don't lie. I want to commend Michael for his refusal to turn away from what is really going on, and I linked to his page as well as tagged it.

Apologies for the political interlude. But I can't ignore my guts. Tomorrow I will focus on something completely different, a discussion about a particularly loaded term that I propose is the cause of most of human suffering.

I'll certainly pass this on to our youngest lad. It's his kind of thing (I'm too old, fat, and only interested in pleasure. He's lean, keen and eager for the fight. Though I have to admit he's a bit of a sybarite too).
Seriously, it's a very interesting blog.

Would you believe that I had a dream last night in which an alien space thingy landed ina river (possibly the Thames, with all those new spawning salmon) and Bush and his minions caused carnage over the earth?
Honest to God. I know you're going to think I'm joshing you, but I'm not kidding.

Kippa-I totally believe you. I think we all need to pay more attention to our dreams. I think they can teach us a lot. Especially about how we are all connected. And it's this connectedness and growing sense of co-operation that could be our salvation and the Earth's salvation. I always defer to dreams and respect them, whether they're mine or someone else's. I think indigenous people hold the key to what we have lost, but sadly, as we all know, they are being exterminated along with our Earth by those who have sold their souls for power and wealth.
