PART ONE OF A THREE PART SERIES: “The BOregonian Bamboozle: the Newhouse Clan of New York
Journalists and Readers of the local independent media are often puzzled by the sheer blandness, the constant and annoying right wing viewpoints, and the obsessive use of government and "official" sources by the giant corporate media; actually, the reasons for this are quite elementary.

Re: Blackthorn's Overkill
Did you read Blackthorn's latest issue? It was awesome as always, with one exception: an article called Overkill. This is a letter describing the issues that I found to be discouraging in this article. If you didn't read the article, well, basically, what I have to say is that the problems we face are the results of many forces, and that we shouldn't point fingers at the innocent and powerless, and also that when we as 'radicals' use anthropology to make our points, we should look at who we get our info from.

Aside from the $40 million, Gibson's Icon is also seeking some payback in the form of punitive damages.

COMMENTARY: Stepford America, by a history professor; U.S.A. - United Stepfords of America
U.S.A. -- United Stepfords of America Why do we continue to insist that we live in a democracy - that clean elections in America are possible when every particle of evidence proves the contrary? Why do we tell ourselves that we have a political system that "works" when we are faced with two candidates who are an echo of each other? Why do we persist in believing that we are not yet living in a fascist empire? According to Mussolini, "The first stage of fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of State and corporate power."

Of course, all those who prefer to remain optimistic will ask, "So what should we do? What is your solution?" My answer is that we should stop believing that the system works and that choosing the "right" candidate in a rigged game where a "right" candidate cannot even be nominated is not a viable option.

Ronald Reagan (1911-2004): An Obituary
His Grace! impossible! what, dead?
Of old age too, and in his bed! ...
Twas time in conscience he should die!
This world he cumber'd long enough;
He burnt his candle to the snuff;
And that's the reason, some folks think,
He left behind so great a stink."

Where has the center gone?
The center has been systematically destroyed by what is now identified as "neo-con" politics and which began in the 1960's with William Buckley's "National Review" characterization of "liberalism" as "leftist". This "conservative" viewpoint took off with Barry Goldwater's "Extremism in defense of liberty is no vice," (which really says that the center constituted an attack on liberty), and continues up to the present day with Dubya's idea that "You are with us or against us," (which really means that if you object to the domination of politics by the Republican Party, as manifest in the USA Patriot Act, you are a supporter of terrorism).

Stupidity Documentary Held Over at Clinton Street Theater
Due to popular demand, the hit documentary Stupidity is held over at Clintons.


This review from Portland's Newsweekly
Williamette Week

Stupidity

In one of the most compelling and entertaining films of the year, documentarian Albert Nerenberg asks one simple question: What is stupidity? It's much harder to answer than you might think, for, as Einstein theorized, the universe and stupidity are the only things that are infinite--and he had his doubts about the former. Amazingly, there has been no real academic study on stupidity, and there are only a handful of serious books on the topic, but that doesn't stop Nerenberg from blazing forward. The result is a sometimes funny, sometimes terrifying look at the human race and the stupid things it has done over the course of time. One of the theories Stupidity puts forth is that people prefer the act of "resisting intelligence," as it makes them feel more comfortable. In other words, ignorance is bliss. Which would explain why this country is in so much trouble. Thankfully, Nerenberg isn't content with simply pointing a finger and saying things like, "Bush is a moron." Instead, he offers some surprising theories, offering much intelligence behind the veneer of idiocy. Along with Super Size Me, Stupidity is one of the most important films you can see in town this week. Don't miss it. NR (DW)

Santana Says USA = Racist For Ignoring Death of Elvin Jones
Elvin Ray Jones 1927 - 2004  (photo by Jos Knaepen) "I'm really embarrassed for this nation, and for MTV and VH1 and Rolling Stone, because it was a very racist thing not to acknowledge this most important musician when he passed," Santana said. "For them to (play up) Ozzy Osbourne and other corny-ass white people, but not Elvin, is demeaning and I'm really embarrassed to live in this country."

"When that intro comes in on 'A Love Supreme' it's like the gates of heaven opening," Santana, 56, said. "In fact, when I die, if I don't hear 'A Love Supreme,' I'll turn back; I'll know I'm in the wrong place. For me, Elvin was Número Uno, forever, for all ages, for all existence.

It is because he holds Jones in such high esteem that Santana was angry at the absence of media tributes to the masterful drummer, who was 76 when he died and kept performing until just weeks before his death.

The reason for the slight, Santana believes, is a matter of racial and cultural prejudice.

"Here in the U.S., it's embarrassing (how jazz is treated). People should be ashamed of themselves."

To me the comparison couldn't be more eloquent: Cuba sends doctors, Washington sends soldiers to prop up a US-imposed regime there...)

The movie's premise is that these large corporations have one goal: to get larger and control the system that reports the news.
