Stateside: Rosalea Barker Photographs The Delights Of Fall In San Francisco
- The first week of October is totally THE best time to be in San Francisco. The days might start off foggy but by the afternoon it is sunny and warm, and in the evening you get the golden-est sunsets. Thursday, October 5, was a day of protest against the Bush administration, and San Francisco's Justin Herman Plaza--down by the Ferry Building--was the site of a large gathering. By the time I got there in the evening it had mostly dispersed, but I did get to hear the Bay Area director of the 9-11 Truth Alliance speak. See... Stateside With Rosalea: Rosalea Does SF [1]

Israel/OT: News From Palestine A One-Act Play By Genevieve Cora Fraser
- Based on the life and writings of Samah Jabr - Palestinian, international and Israeli peace activists walk in a circle protesting, chanting and carrying “free Palestine” - “end the occupation” – “tear down the wall” signs. Israeli occupation forces approach and spray the crowd with tear gas and rough people up. Others stand at a distance, rifles trained on the crowd. Sounds of a helicopter can be heard overhead as shots ring out. See...

Fascism: John Chuckman Joins The Debate Over American Fascism
- The word fascism is used a lot, often pejoratively. The image that immediately comes to mind is Mussolini in a steel helmet, hands on hips, head tipped back, jaw thrust out. It is an image that influenced other fascists. Young Hitler was a great admirer. See...

Antiquities: Suzan Mazur: Italy Seeks Return Of Medea Vase Highlighted On Scoop
- Cleveland Museum's antiquities officials have failed to respond to my email request for information as to how the museum acquired the South Italian Medea vase in 1991 recently cited on this page Scoop: Cleveland's Got Prized South Italian Medea Vase [1] . The vase was part of a highly controversial auction of the Hunt brothers' collection at Sotheby's in June 1990. However, an informed source close to the Italian investigation advises that Italy will pursue the Medea along with other pieces now in Cleveland's collection of ancient art. See...

American Coup: Appeal Filed in Bilbray Election Challenge: Speaker Hastert’s Swearing In At Issue
- Attorneys Paul Lehto and Kenneth Simpkins just entered an appeal to a California Superior Court decision that prematurely ended an election contest in California’s 50th Congressional District. Just seven days after the election, Speaker Dennis Hastert swore in Brian Bilbray on the House Floor on June 13, 2006. Hastert claimed that Bilbray was the rightful winner of the close election based on a communication he received from the office of California’s Republican Secretary of State, Bruce McPherson. See...
