A Review of An Inconvenient Truth

I was urged to see An Inconvenient Truth by an activist friend of mine. She wrote me in all caps, so she really must have meant it.

If you want a clear explanation of the science surrounding global climate change, this is certainly it. It's worth seeing for this alone, despite it's flaws. Gore's presentation is clear and well-articulated; the images of environmental holocaust and its horrific human consequences do inspire one to take action; and oh the graphs, so many graphs. It's flaws, however, are certainly present.

The Karl Rove Republican Fundraiser and Battle Royale

Who in the White House knew about New Hampshire republican phonejamming during the 2002 election? How high up does the scandal go? Could republican strategist Karl Rove have been involved?

And even more importantly, if you could have Karl Rove wrestle anyone in a no-holds barred Battle Royale, who would you pick? I went to Manchester, a city where people like their wrestling, to find out.

The city of Portsmouth attempts to censor The Portsmouth Halloween Parade

From a founding member of "The Portsmouth Halloween Parade."

I think it’s absurd, this attempt to have the Halloween parade be anything other that what already is.

The overwhelming response to the ridiculous notion to "tone down" the Halloween Parade and make it a generic tasteless piece of crap event has proven once again that Portsmouth is made up of citizens that will not tolerate any infringements on their right to free speech and expression. This is a good and simple example that our civil liberties are more likely to be eroded under city ordinances than state or federal laws.

Protesters Arrested After Disrupting Negroponte in Vermont

St. Johnsbury,VT--National Intelligence Director John Negroponte's Commencement Address to the graduating class of private St. Johnsbury Academy was disrupted twice by protesters inside the auditorium where the ceremony was being held.

Over 75 protesters gathered on the sidewalk outside of the Academy protesting Negroponte's shadowy record that spans decades including a stint as the U.S. Ambassador to Honduras and Ambassador to Iraq before his present position as the nation's number one "intelligence" overseer. Two other protesters from Vermont School of the Americas Watch were arrested as they attempted to gain entrance to the auditorium.

New Hampshire Flooding, Post Your Pictures and Stories

It's the wettest May on record, and much of the state is still under flood watches and warnings. State health officials have warned people that flood water is toxic, and what is worse, Union Leader delivery has been delayed in some areas.

FEMA has begun preliminary damage assessment according to statements released by local and federal officials.

People have been evacuated in cities and towns all over the state, and some, as in Somersworth, are being warned to boil their drinking water. In Nashua, the Merrimack overflowed and hit a condo complex. Derry has declared a state of emergency.

The Drug of War

This was written by an enlisted cavalry scout who served in Operation Iraqi Freedom II. His words define feelings of my own, as well as many other veterans and soldiers who are still serving.
