PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS
James Blakey: ‘I wouldn’t out too much stock in what Paul Craig Roberts writes. Here is a column he wrote where he compared be a slave in the American South and being a US taxpayer today.’
☞ Thanks! My point in offering the Roberts column was not, by any means, to endorse all his views; rather, to show that it’s not just liberals who feel President Bush has done a disastrous job.
THINGS WE CAN’T SEE OR SMELL CAN KILL US
Thomas Whitaker: ‘When you have 15 solid minutes for an interesting read, this is a photo-essay of someone living near Chernobyl, who drove her motorcycle in through the ‘dead zone’ and recorded what lifeless conditions are there now.’
☞ I meant to run this a week ago, on the April 26 anniversary of Chernobyl. It is well worth the time. And think as you go through it not just of the dramatic – a melt down. Think, too, of the perhaps more insidious . . . such as an accretion of toxic substances in things we eat.
Tomorrow, I hope: Money!
