FROM YESTERDAY'S NEW YORK TIMES
To the Editor:
We have a government that engages in secret domestic spying by presidential decree; monitors personal library use; maintains secret prisons for unidentified prisoners held without recourse; engages in abusive treatment (if not torture) of prisoners; plants propaganda articles in domestic and foreign media; and formulates its domestic agenda based upon fundamentalist religious principles. It sounds more like governments that we are seeking to reform, and not the ideal we purport to represent.

I happen to know the guy who wrote this in yesterday's Times. I'm not sure I could say it better, so in this case, I'll just paraphrase. (Thanks Don!) And thanks to fellow peace activist Monique Fruglier for the eerie photograph taken earlier this month at the Bush-outta-Philly rally.
