Unoccupied outdated cop cars left at the curb. Provocateurs take the bait.

F*%K Charlie Hebdo

…as I said at the time, the shootings were an atrocity, free speech should be sacrosanct, but I don’t have to be a supporter of Charlie Hebdo. Here’s their “oh so clever” view of  the refugee drownings.

Who are the adult human beings who think this is funny? Who are the people who pay money for this?

Screen Shot 2015-03-04 at 2.37.09 PMTurns out some folks started a Twitter #MariaWStewart a while back. Shall we bring it back to life? Add your favorite quotes, your thoughts, research discoveries. Other ideas, suggestions? And maybe we can also get enough people in on the search to actually find a documented picture of her!

Right Wing Death Cult?

WTF?! Who are these people who see this as *necessary* legislation? I’m beginning to think there is a mass rightwing mania of some sort. Dare I say it– a sort of Christian death cult? Their own toddlers are already shooting themselves and their parents. Now adults can bypass training, even licenses (!), and just walk around armed to the damned teeth.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but this is bleeping insane. I find myself trying to read these faces. What is going on in their minds? Am I encountering people every day who think this way?

Danny Schechter, The News Dissector 1942–2015

DannySchechterIt really is sad to imagine the world henceforth without the great journalist, activist, thinker, teacher, filmmaker, writer, blogger, TV producer — on and on.

He was brilliant, fearless, kind, funny, generous. A man in full — devoted father and reliable friend. I had the privilege of being interviewed by him a couple of times, mostly in connection with Free South Africa work. But I remember his early days back to WBCN in Boston.

He was a force for integrity, fairness, human rights, and justice every moment of his life. And he had a lot more living, working and dancing to do.
