Here's an excerpt:

"And what will we see in 2003?

War, most certainly. As an idea, a reality, and a means to an end.

And war as justification - the justifications that will abound as we go forward into our uncertain future, unsure of our way, of who we want to be or who our friends are. The kind of a war that substitutes the values of life, liberty and happiness with the realities of geopolitical authority, scorched earth domestic policy, and the crushing of dissent. The kind of a war that fails to leave us unchanged, and not for the better, no matter how hard we cling to our illusions."

Here's some from the most current:

"Who is the Battelle Memorial Institute?

And what did they have to do with Tuesday's election numbers?

Glad you asked.

One of the key aspects of the November 5 debacle was the absence of exit polling data available to the media. This has usually been handled by an outfit called Voter News Service, whose sole purpose has been to supply exit polling data for the networks. Strangely, the company whose sole purpose is to provide exit polling data got to Election Day and found out their software didn't work."

Go there for the rest.
