Thomas Frank’s new book out August 5

Seldom do I promote an author’s book unless I’ve read and am personally recommending it but Thomas Frank’s new book, The Wrecking Crew, explains the conservative approach to de-governing and dismantling the US government more fully than any book before it.

Think, ‘Katrina response’ or ‘no response on 9/11’ or ‘ bin Laden who?’ or ‘reconstruct Iraq’ or ______  (fill in the blank – I know ya can – there’re a million of ’em.)

It’s 11:25 am edt here and I’m waiting for Fresh Air to come on at noon with an interview with the author. Fresh Air’s interview will be available on their site probably later today in case you miss it on the radio.

Here’s a link to Mr. Frank’s site where you can read about his book and order it if you like:

Update 5:30 pm edt: okay, here’s NPR’s link – you can read or listen:

Have you a long lost love?

Of course you do! Don’t we all? The one that got away…the one you still pine for just a wee bit perhaps?

So I got out my Prismacolor oil pencils and my Rexel Derwent watercolour pencils the other day and set about symbolizing lost love within a 9″x11″ rectangle of paper…and here’s the result:

As Henry Kissinger said

US Vilifies Faithful Old Ally

By Eric Margolis

As Henry Kissinger cynically noted, being America’s ally is more dangerous than
being its enemy:  http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article20417.htm

Princes, Paupers, Pilgrims & Pioneers: Our Predecessors & Me

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel are essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
