Reminds me of Daniel Berrigans Poem "SOME"...

Some by Daniel Berrigan

Some stood up once, and sat down
...Some walked a mile, and walked away
Some stood up twice, then sat down, "I've had it" they said,
Some walked two miles, then walked away. "It's too much," they cried.

Some stood and stood and stood.
They were taken for fools,
They were taken for being taken in.

Some walked and walked and walked.
They walked the earth,
They walked the waters,
They walked the air.

"Why do you stand," they were asked, "and why do you walk?"

"Because of the children," they said,
"And because of the heart,
"And because of the bread,"

"Because the cause is the heart's beat,
And the children born
And the risen bread."

An unparalleled benchmark
in documentary filmmaking.
An amazing soundtrack.
Powerful imagery.

Arundhati Roy's speech strikes to the heart -
every word poiniently and poetically
weaving an intricate tapestry of our modern global ache.

Western citizens, hear her clarity in objective voice;
be confounded by it's compelling incisiveness.
These 64 minutes will rattle your cage....


"The term "anti-American"
is usually used by the American establishment
to discredit and, not falsely -
but shall we say inaccurately - define its critics.

Once someone is branded anti-American,
the chances are that he or she will be judged
before they are heard,
and the argument will be lost
in the welter of bruised national pride." ..<br>


"To call someone "anti-American",
indeed to be anti-American,
(or for that matter, anti-Indian or anti-Timbuktuan)
is not just racist, it's a failure of the imagination.

An inability to see the world in terms
other than those
the establishment has set out for you." - Arundhati Roy

"Eyes Wide Open" exhibit, put on by AFSC. http://www.afsc.org/eyes /

If you have not seen one, check the schedule and go when it is in your area.

Watch the video on thier page.

Watch the Documentary on PBS.



When "Eyes Wide Open" came to Seattle a couple years ago, the sea level raised because of all the tears shed! Now it is double the amount of BOOTS.

STOP THE WAR!

Wronger Than Wrong
Not all wrong theories are equal
By Michael Shermer


In belles lettres the witty literary slight has evolved into a genre because, as 20th-century trial lawyer Louis Nizer noted, "A graceful taunt is worth a thousand insults." To wit, from high culture, Mark Twain: "I didn't attend the funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying I approved of it." Winston Churchill: "He has all the virtues I dislike and none of the vices I admire." And from pop culture, Groucho Marx: "I've had a perfectly wonderful evening. But this wasn't it." Scientists are no slouches when it comes to pitching invectives at colleagues. Achieving almost canonical status as the ne plus ultra put-down is theoretical physicist Wolfgang Pauli's reported harsh critique of a paper: "This isn't right. It's not even wrong." I call this Pauli's proverb.

<snip>

Such egregious examples, however, do not negate the extraordinary ability of science to elucidate the natural and social worlds. Reality exists, and science is the best tool yet employed to discover and describe that reality. The theory of evolution, even though it is the subject of vigorous debates about the tempo and mode of life's history, is vastly superior to the theory of creation, which is not even wrong (in Pauli's sense). As evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins observed on this dispute: "When two opposite points of view are expressed with equal intensity, the truth does not necessarily lie exactly halfway between them. It is possible for one side to be simply wrong."

By DEBERA CARLTON HARRELL
P-I REPORTER

The Iraqi doctor sat on a corner of the stage, listening and smiling as Seattle grade-schoolers sang for the orphans of Baghdad.


We are children of peace. We are the children of the world.

But when they sang the words in Arabic, Enas Mohamed broke down. It was not just the lyrics, but the innocent faces smiling back.

Nah-nu awladdul salaam, Nah-nu awladdul aalaam.

Mohamed, a research coordinator at the University of Washington, cannot block her emotions when she thinks of friends and family still in Iraq, and the devastating effect of war on children there.

The Rally had happened, and the March was just getting underway, whendown the side street came the drummers leading the BACKBONE.

It was carried like those great Dragon puppets in a Chinese New Year parade.

The drummers begin to beat, the entourage turned the corner, joined the middle of the march, and became our heartbeat and spine.

Guess there were two thousand folks there. It was lively!
