Those Who Ignore History…

There’s “a saying in the movement that we don’t trust anyone over 30.” Jack Weinberg (24), Free Speech Movement, University of California at Berkeley, c. 1965. The correct axiom is (or should be): “Those who don’t know history are destined to repeat it.” Edmund Burke (1729-97).

We all come from somewhere else… more…

Cameron Douglas—Actor, Addict, Snitch…

In a NY Times (May 21st) article, Michael Douglas’s son Cameron (33) is cited as a cause-célèbre in “Doctors Seek New Approach for Jailed Addicts.”

The only reason that this site follows celebrity prisoners is if a gross injustice is apparent, or there’s an abiding lesson for the rest of us. The original article on this site re Cameron Douglas appeared on June 4th, 2010.  I was more generous on that occasion… more…

The Whole World is Watching…

It’s already started. The Chicago police are snatching and arresting people who have come to Chicago to protest the NATO Summit.

Austerity, Marraige & That Old Time Hate…

Corps, Gov’t, Police & Provos…

When was the last time you heard of a terrorist conspiracy case that did not include a police agent or a paid “confidential informant” (CI), and wasn’t the result of a “sting operation”?

FDA Cracks Door on LSD…

Born in the summer of ‘42, four years in front of the Baby Boomer generation, has made for an interesting journey. In ’59 at 17 I joined the US Army, 101st Airborne, Ft. Campbell, Kentucky.
