Politics: Homework

Guess what day it is today, kids?

Here's a hint: a book is being published today, written by perhaps the best investigative journalist working. Want to see how the 2004 U.S. Election was stolen? The full depth of Ken "Kenny-Boy" Lay's financial depravity, complete with a list of potential future cell-mates? The reasons for Terror Alerts and who benifits most from the atmosphere of fear? The future assassination of Hugo Chavez, and the explanation why it had to be done?

Unlike another, ah, person (sort of) who is publishing a book today, you won't see a dagger beside "Armed Madhouse" by Greg Palast.

If you can't afford it, get it in to your local library. In fact, even if you buy it, get it in at your local library anyway. If you can afford it, buy two and give one to the local library. Hand them out on the frikkin' street corner if you have to.

6/6/06 just wasn't a number. Does anyone remember the 666th day of the new millenium (October 29, 2002)? Did anything of note happen on that date? Not as far as i can see.

The Demon Haunted World is a great book. It's hard to imagine, even after reading it, that the core subject is UFO sightings. The core idea is about insanity, and how to avoid it.

Check out (if you haven't already) Martin Gardner's "Fads & Falacies in the name of science" too. It was written over 50 years ago, and to see some of the seriously misgotten ideas from then still holding sway now is just amazing...
