Eileen and I ordered this book and it came in the mail yesterday. I read a bit in it and discovered that the entire book was published simultaneously on line [link to site].
I find this extremely encouraging.
I was also surprised to learn that Twain actually left a coherent implication of how he wanted his autobiography published. I always thought it was just a huge collection of preparatory manuscripts.
This makes me even more excited to read this book.
I listened to a hilarious satirical song yesterday on the Capital Steps website called Lirty Dies [link to site, link to mp3]
I love the Capital Steps. They even have an entire web site dedicated to “Whipping Flurds” as they say [link]. I especially like: “Licky Weaks, the poo tarty system & the pee tarty…”
Yesterday’s report includes information on the recent cancellation of George Bush’s trip to Switzerland due to possibly being confronted as an international war crimincal:
“…on Monday, the Center for Constitutional Rights and the Berlin-based European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights issued a 42-page document they call a preliminary indictment against Bush. Human rights lawyers say Bush could now face a lawsuit wherever he travels outside the United States. (from the report)
I have to say I support this and have been saying for years that Bush and Cheney should be held responsible for their reckless behavior in office that resulted in the deaths and torture of so many people, not to mention lying to the American public about Weapons for Mass Destruction in Iraq.
Since I am allowing myself to express my radical political views here, I might as well go whole hog and recommend a report I plan to listen to this morning: Noam Chomsky: How Climate Change Became a ‘Liberal Hoax’
