And in the green corner......

The Global Outrage of an Educated Man........vol.62
Like a lightweight fighter, this is going to be all jabs.
"Talk as much philosophy as you like, worship as many Gods as you please, observe ceremonies and sing devotional hymns, but liberation will never come, even after a hundred aeons, without realizing the Oneness." Sankara
"A heart without affection is like a purse without money." Benjamin Mandelstamm, Russian Jewish writer & Hebraist
Here are some original thoughts:
The revolution will not be televised, because Rupert Murdoch already owns the channel. It has to start in the small towns and on the internet and spread indiscriminately like cancer. The truth must live on despite the stem cell destruction of minds by ignorance and indifference.
The morning she left, the atmosphere took the shape of my emotions. There was a downpour into the downtown of my soul covered in pavement. I was without an umbrella for the first time in nine months, for I was without her.
Watching a Blunt on Austin City alone on a Saturday night in early June, thinking about the last night before Halloween and how we found our seats in the dark only to be told that we've chosen the wrong ones, we had been corrected, and the year has gone away, like you, the setting sun.
But lately, I have been asking myself, how do I cut loose something that I may have never held?
Now for something completely different.......
Hamas is grabbing control of Palestine. An extreme radical Islamic state is rising up against Israel with what is shaping up to be a very hot summer.
The U.S. says that Iran is arming the Taliban. Is Cheney behind that one? By the way, we once armed the Taliban, so they could fight the Soviets, should we then attack ourselves?
Where the hell has North Korea been?
Changing the subject again........
Watching the wandering eyes of men as beautiful women pass them by on Nicollet avenue is the simple truth of summer and like watching little boys not getting what they want during Christmas.
The beauty of the flow of prose from the pen of Charles Frazier in his 2nd novel "Thirteen Moons" is like being able to watch the rising and setting of the sun being performed in a single sentence.
And again.......
The immigration scare tactic seems a lot like the Nazi's Xenophobia exterminating any other than the Aryan race. None of the 9/11 hi-jackers were from México, they were legal citizens from Saudi Arabia.
"A person should be more concerned with spiritual than with material matters, but another person's material welfare is his own spiritual concern." Rabbi Israel Salanter
