An open space for global conversation
In the late 1990s, my husband, my self and my in-laws attended one of our monthly Historical Madison County Society meetings, during which we were given a viewing of an old film shot around the county courthouse in the 1930s. What has remained stuck in my memory was this astonishing fact - there were nothing but lean and thin people present. Of course, there have been throughout history, some people who were "gravitationally challenged" - King Henry the VIII or "Chubby" of the Little…Continue

I received this forward from my eccentric uncle (who commented on this with "reads like a utopian dream which will cause a lot of miseries"). I could almost believe it, since the Chinese own all the US debt but I can not imagine such a scenario going down without a WWIII type of resistance . . . by the way, here's a google to…Continue

Bill Moyers speech at the 40th Anniversary of Ralph Nadar's Public Citizen, in which he discusses the Occupy Wall Street movement and why American's have lost faith in our government. This is long but what a quick education .
