The War Zone and The Sanctuary

A blog run by a Liberal Feminist woman who adores Music and all other Art in any form. Actually, she loves just about everything from Science to British comedy. But - she is pissed off with the Current Administration and all their Right Wing ideology and is compelled to fight their reign by setting up...A Blog ( ta da! ). All malice aside, this woman is most happy when she is surrounded by intelligent thought and witty conversation.

Sunday Night Smorgasbord


Here is a dish of things that are going around the internet.

First: Lara Logan's excellent interview with Howard Kurtz on CNN on the allegations that the mainstream media is being too negative about the situations in Iraq. She does a damn good job of showing why these allegations are really crap.

Second: I've always liked the Dixie Chicks, not because of their music-which is good, just not my type-but because they are independent women who speak their minds and who don't make nice just to fall in line and avoid criticism. They have my vote and I will buy their upcoming CD to support the ideals that they promote. Hail to the Dixie Bitches!

Third: From HuffPo and Chicago-Sun Times: there were huge protests in LA on Friday to protest the new immigration legislation that cracks down on illegal immigrants. My favorite quote:
''They're here for the American Dream,'' said Malissa Greer, 29, who joined a crowd estimated by police to be at least 10,000 strong. ''God created all of us. He's not a God of the United States, he's a God of the world.''
Good shit! But, I might add, God is not a he, damnit. There is no gender involved with things spiritual.

Fourth: Finally Global Warming is getting front page coverage on Time. This is an issue that is very important to me. Fuck, the world is too beautiful to lose out to the intrest of big business and consumer "needs." Who needs a car? Humans existed without cars for millions of years. We don't need them. Ride a fucking bike. Walk. Cars should be used for long distance transportation only. :) - alas, there are those who hold the view that a few miles is "long distance."

Alright - time for West Wing.
