1492. As children we were taught to memorize this year with pride and joy as the year people began living full and imaginative lives on the continent of North America. Actually, people had been living full and imaginative lives on the continent of North America for hundreds of years before that. 1492 was simply the year sea pirates began to rob, cheat, and kill them.

Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

Wise words of warning…

This one’s for TransCanada Corporation and transnational ConocoPhillipsin solidarity with the hundreds of thousands (maybe even millions) of concerned citizens on both sides of the Canada/U.S. border opposed to the Keystone XL pipeline extension.

Seriously—don’t say you haven’t been warned.

Power to the People…

New York, USA

Today was John Lennon’s birthday. In 1971, forty years ago (wow, that went by fast) he recorded and launched the song Power to the People.” I can’t help but wonder if and how he might be supporting the Occupy Wall Street protestors if he was still with us today…
