Papa Hemingway and FBI

IW:  They said Hemingway committed suicide because of his paranoid delusions.  Proof of this was his constant talk of being under FBI surveillance.  I mean, come on.  Until this New York Times article turned up this weekend titled Hemingway, Hounded by the Feds: Decades later, in response to a Freedom of Information petition, the F.B.I. released its […]

NYT: Fracking Poisons our Water

The documents reveal that the wastewater, which is sometimes hauled to sewage plants not designed to treat it and then discharged into rivers that supply drinking water, contains radioactivity at levels higher than previously known, and far higher than the level that federal regulators say is safe for these treatment plants to handle.

Attacking Public Employees: Will New York Lead?

A genuinely progressive governor would begin work on the state budget by correcting unfairly low levels of taxation of business, reducing regressive taxes, and increasing the progressivity of personal income taxes. The new governor instead chooses not to raise taxes on those whose wealth insulated them from the worst effects of the economic crisis and […]

MLK to O: We Must End Our Violence Abroad and At-Home

Ian writes: Today’s shooting in Arizona of Congresswoman Giffords is an awful reminder of why violence is not the answer to political disagreements.  Dr. King was widely criticized, including on the editorial pages of the New York Times, for broadening his speeches from only violence at home to include  violence abroad.

I wrote a letter to the Book Review editor in response because I thought it was […]

Opportunity embraced: Howie Hawkins, center stage | syracuse.com

For the most part, his role in the debate seemed to leave a good impression. The New York Times spoke of Hawkins’ “earnest pleas” and described him as a candidate who offered “substance.” Former Republican gubernatorial candidate John Faso was not so kind; when a post-debate caller to YNN offered praise for Hawkins, Faso used […]

Long Beach Herald prints Brown’s letter on Hawkins for Guv (G-NY)

Friends, Below is a letter of mine the Long Beach Herald printed (almost in its entirety) yesterday. The printed letter was edited somewhat for reasons of length. The letter deals with class warfare, taxation and Howie’s campaign.
