Michele and I are back from a 10 day trip back to the east where we witnessed by brother’s marriage to the fabulous Sarah Kinsman. The ceremony was beautiful, with quite a large posse of various Quinn and Kinsman relatives and friends in attendance. Got many photos to put up from that, as well as side trips to Fort Revere and Indian Well State Park – so as soon as our shoddy DSL connection is back up again, we will post em.

Congrats to Nate and Sarah, hope you are not getting too sunburned in St. Martin!!!!!

Found an important news source that claims to “offer our readers a unique and accurate map of how the world works, unfiltered by preconception or ideology.” Read the latest article COUP D’ETAT Michael C. Ruppert explains “The Real Reason Tenet and Pavitt Resigned from the CIA…”

David Horvitz sent me a link to his latest project, Memories of Amache. Normally I do not have the patience to read much online, but the subject matter and combination of images and text, even with some of the typos, kept my attention. I am reminded of my brief trip to the Japanese American National Museum, and how just standing in the reconstructed barracks from an internment camp I was overwhelmed with grief, as if I could feel the collective memory of pain that had become embedded in the structure. Although we debated this at the museum, the internment of the Japanese Americans is not unlike that of the Jews by the Nazis, and not unlike what had the potential to happen to the American Muslims after September 11th. I have been reading Avishai Marglit‘s The Ethics of Memory which explores the “healing power of the truth in the case of communal memories.” Maybe David has read this too.

Colorado man, very very upset about a Zoning Board decision, armor plates a bulldozer, welds himself in and – armed with a gun – proceeds to raze a concrete batch plant, the town hall, a bank, a library, and local newspaper offices. He is still inside the bulldozer.
