History or his story

Today I came across a nice interview conducted by Charlie Rose on public television with two Iraqis. Their subject matter had do with whether Iraq was better off five years later as a result of the United States invasion and occupation. I hope you take the time to listen to this as it’s quite informative and not supportive in general of much of the baloney that we’ve been fed by our government and the United States press.

Dynamite birthday

Today is the birthday of Alfred Nobel who actually invented dynamite. He intended it to be used for peaceful purposes.

I’m indebted to Brother David Steindl-Rast once again for this information. Brother David’s Gratefulness.org always has interesting information that makes me glad to be alive.
