For those of you in Roswell. If you missed the very abbreviated screening of "Good Night and Good Luck" when it showed here last December for all of about 4 nights (one screening per night) at the since closed cinema on South Union,
you now have a chance to see it at the Roswell Senior Circle place on North Main (near Mescalero and next to the Rent-a-Center) on Sunday the 25th at 1:30pm. If you are a member it is free, if you are not a member one of the members can bring you as a guest. For more details contact them at 623-2311. This is Not the Senior Center on Missouri. Not sure if they will show it again next Monday and Sunday, their usual movie days. Be advised, this is Roswell and there are those who believe that Sen. McCarthy was a "real" American who did many good things.
This morning's RDR ran an opt-ed by one John Taylor that was nothing but a hate rant against those opposed to the war in Iraq. It takes the line that the media is not reporting the good things in Iraq and that U.S. troops he has spoken too are outraged at this. He doesn't list actual names, just Cpl. S, etc. He is still fighting the Vietman War and the whole piece reads like something from Faux News, or even worse. Even the headline, which is done by the paper itself and not the writers or columnists, has an exclimation mark in it. Among other things it attacks those not supporting the war as never having served, unlike the the supporters like Bush, Chaney, O'Really and the other chickenhawks. You really should get a copy and read it. Its the RDR for Wednesday, June 21st. It would be interesting to see him actually verify these stories he mentions.
War is hell and it makes people anti-social who wouldn't otherwise be so and attracts those who already are. There are legitimate uses of self defense but not the war life given us by the military industrial complex. In fact, it is not about defending people or nations at all. Unless we get past war glory, global corporatism and nation against nation, Earth and Humanity are doomed. And its not just the U.S., just that we happen to live here and it is, at least for now, the second most powerful behind global corporatism.

I was up late last night and saw something truly inspiring.
I was watching cspan and Kerry was giving his plan for Iraq. He did a great job in my book. The truly inspirational part was that when he was done he and Sen. Warner of Virginia had a great debate right there on capitol hill! I mean asking each other questions and answering each others questions. Going through all the ifs ands or buts with each other. It was an extended debate. It went on for quite some time. Both maintained decorum, respect for each other and statesmanship, without slogans, yelling, or cheap insults. It was amazing! I feared I would never see that again in my life time. God Bless them both. I wish all America could have seen it. I was a perfect example of the way things should be done. Yes, I thought Kerry clearly won but I suppose others might have seen it differently.:-)

I saw President Cheney on TV tonight saying what the Dems want to do is exactly the wrong thing. Considering his track record I would have to assume the Dems are actually right on course.
