The Bushwacked Band won’t leave the stage


Cheney is still beating the drums of war, Bush is still warbling on, Condie and the rest are still hitting discordant notes that are only music to the ears of the war profiteers … and meanwhile Iraq suffers and burns as this staticide travesty that far exceeds Vietnam is allowed to continue.

Timely Reminders

"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse than what it was, before the crusade began. By thinking primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions, to create occasions for evil to manifest itself."
-- Aldous Huxley

"The only war that matters is the war against the imagination. All others are subsumed by it."
-- Diane DiPrima, "Rant", from Pieces of a Song.

"It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
