More Poetry



BREAD
The soft warm dough
is kneaded in rhythm
on the countertop
one turn swoosh-on-flour
two turn give us this bread this
wheat soy rye oat French &
English muffin
fold and press push & turn
big elastic basketball
bounce it bounce it one
swoosh two swoosh smell the salt
smell the yeast
There's some flour on your nose
not sin
but sustenance
give us this day
deliver it to us
fold it press it turn it
rest it in the bowl & cover
It rises like a living thing
punch it down punch it down
cut it shape it
shove it in the oven
Make it bake it give us this
Our day
Deliver it to us
-----I.S.

Icey rain and then snow this morning

No sense and no heart


"Commanders believe the new approach will make U.S. forces better positioned to combat sectarian violence, but they acknowledge the new approach is riskier and will likely mean more U.S. casualties in the short-run." It's a lame duck sending in sitting ducks. To save his ego he will let our young men and women be killed in a war that was based on deceit. For shame.

Amy Goodman


On our public access TV station the news program 'Democracy Now' covers some news the other stations don't touch. It is important to get balanced news and this program is valuable. Amy Goodman is not the typical newscaster. She is really smart.

Oh Happy Day!


A woman is the speaker of the house for the first time! She raised 5 children of her own and at the opening of the 110th congress yesterday she surrounded herself with children. This is a good sign for our country. Women are needed to bring good balance to the workings of government in my humble opinion.

Mark your calendar


January 11 is the International Day to Shut Down Guantanamo. There will be protests all over the world, including England, Australia and Holland. In the US major protests will take place in Washington DC and New York City, plus dozens of cities throughout the country, including outside the US Southern Command in Miami.

The biggest may be this:

On January 9-13, a first-ever international delegation of former prisoners, families of current prisoners, US lawyers and human rights activists will travel to Guantanamo, Cuba to hold a conference on prison abuses and march to the Cuban-side security gate of the US Naval Base to call for the closure of the illegal prison. The protest in Cuba is part of the January 11 International Day to Shut Down Guantanamo, the day that marks the 5-year anniversary of the first prisoners being sent to Guantanamo.
