"The danger to political dissent is acute
where the Government attempts to act
under so vague a concept as the power to protect 'domestic security.'
Given the difficulty of defining the domestic security interest,
the danger of abuse in acting to protect that interest
becomes apparent."

We're Not in Lake Wobegon Anymore

by Garrison Keillor

"...This is a great country,
and it wasn't made so by angry people.
We have a sacred duty to bequeath it to our grandchildren
in better shape than however we found it.
We have a long way to go and we're not getting any younger.

Dante said that the hottest place in Hell is reserved for those
who in time of crisis remain neutral,so I have spoken my piece,
and thank you, dear reader.
It's a beautiful world, rain or shine,
and there is more to life than winning."

Public Power in the Age of Empire

by Arundhati Roy

"...synthetically manufactured fear is used
to gain public sanction for further acts of aggression.
And so it goes,
building into a spiral of self-fulfilling hysteria,
now formally calibrated by the U.S government's
Amazing Technicolored Terror Alerts:
fuchsia, turquoise, salmon pink."

you can do what ever you want,
and are only limited by my bandwidth, and space. "
Radical Reference

"Library workers are launching a project
in support of the demonstrations surrounding
the Republican National Convention.
We will offer blog, chat, street, and news reference,
responding to questions from demonstrators."
I HAVE to say it again...

Chart: Bush Ratings vs. Terror Alerts

"There are few things that are quite evident from the chart:

- Whenever his ratings dip, there's a new terror alert.

- Every terror alert is followed by a slight uptick of Bush approval ratings.

- Whenever there are many unfavorable headlines,
there's another alert or announcement (distraction effect).

- As we approach the 2004 elections, the number and frequency of terror alerts
keeps growing, to the point that they collapse in the graphic.
At the same time, Bush ratings are lower than ever."
