Snail mail to Mr. Brian M. Carney, of the editorial board of the Wall Street Journal:

64 year old woman here, oldest of 10 with Polish & Swedish grandparents, 12 years of nuns as teachers, so you know I’m not some whacko.

“Brutal systems have played a prominent role in many countries, including the U.S”. But that is true. Why can’t you “work for constant improvement”, as Deming said? Instead, “there you go again”, gloating over the bigger mote in the Soviet eye?

“If you cannot distinguish between levels of evil, you are a cause of evil”. What the heck does that mean? Little Cuba more evil than Huge China? Or, “what’s a few stirred-up Muslims compared to ending the Soviet Union and freeing all of Eastern Europe”; I’m paraphrasing Zbigniew Brzezinski in a The New Yorker article long ago.

Have you read George Crile’s book, Charlie Wilson’s War? Maybe you’ve got “a comfortable sense of moral superiority”, but I’m with Andy Rooney: we were just plain lucky to be born white here.

“...cruel and arbitrary power lay at the heart of a system that purported to redress inequalities but instead etched them in stone”. Marijuana’s been classified as more dangerous than cocaine for how long now? “Free market”, I hear over and over, but marijuana’s still not allowed in. “Free society”? I remember a William F. Buckley, Jr. column where he was too afraid to risk getting marijuana for his sister, I think it was, who wanted some to counteract chemotheraphy.

“60 Minutes” showed how FL sentenced a lawyer with a wife and 2 daughters, to jail for 25 years for having too many pain pills. 3 months the cops watched him, no selling to anyone else, he was just in terrible pain, but he’s still in jail, with a morphine pump we pay for, as Rush laughs all the way to the bank.

Since you’re at the WSJ, I assume you know what all this financial stuff on http://www.fromthewilderness.com/free/ww3/02_11_02_lucy.html means.

And have you seen http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-8260059923762628848 and read Jim Marrs’s book,
Inside Job?

“India Nuclear Bill Receives Support” was in the WSJ too. “President Bush has made better relations with India a cornerstone of his foreign policy agenda.” I did not know that, did you?
Jim Marrs tells about India catching some Israeli agents pretending to be Arab terrorists. Any relation to the above?

9-11 was never investigated. You’re about the 50th media person I’ve asked, and it’s as silent as Germany before WWII. Stalin sent dissidents to the Gulag; we dis’em and snow’em with Brangelina.

We wouldn't be in Iraq if Colin Powell had resigned. We object strongly to AARP magazine
putting him on the cover.
A Derrick Z.Jackson column in the Chicago Tribune 1-10-05: "Powell said of the tsunami,
'The power of the wave to destroy bridges, to destroy factories, to destroy home, to
destroy crops, to destroy everything in its path is amazing. I have never seen anything
like it in my experience.' Yes he has. It was in Iraq. The tsunami was us".

Was 9-11 us? Have you seen
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-8260059923762628848 Read Jim Marrs' book,
"Inside Job"? Where's Miss Marple when we need her?

Re: the Palm Beach Business section story on Quality of Jobs in FL
First thought-any senior citizen would tell you he or she was just glad to have a job.
And $50,000+ of public money went to pay 2 professors whose
salaries we also pay, went to to turn out paperwork that does what for the Common Good?

If the state of FL really wanted more engineers, they would hire some to move the freight
tracks, and perhaps Witham airport, out west the highways, and commuter rail into the population centers. And to do the Everglades Restoration plan, get the rivers and canals clean, etc.

I was a nurses’ aide in high school and then college-low pay, on my feet, emptying
bedpans, cleaning up people who had defecated in bed. But it was a
very interesting job. Of course it was low status. And that survey also seems
to imply that taking care of tourists and old people is just not as good as doing “high tech”.
Which as a housewife who has now done “nothing” for 30+ years, I resent. So when a
friend sent me this, I thought it might be food for thought.

FL Republicans are creating yet another “activist” bureaucracy? Like the $300 million board for Scripps? Now Jeb, Pruitt, and the Speaker, get to choose 11 more appointees, to hand out an additional $95 million?

Is that “Anti-God”? Not using that money to clean up Lake O, seems like a sin of omission. Pregnant women have to make sure the water they drink isn’t a toxic reaction of chlorine and agricultural chemicals. But “Pro-Life” is on the license plates.

God should be in the FL Constitution, but not His Works? The River of Grass, natural springs, rivers and beaches teeming with life, mangroves, coral, and shoals building storm barriers are all sold off to make FL a High Tech Mecca? Jihad.

Oh,yeah, who were those 3 Saudis who flew out of FL without taking off their shoes? And Jeb went right away to those flight schools and took all the records? Sorry, I foolishly watched http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-8260059923762628848

In reply to Richard Cohen of the Washington Post, 6-14-06

I’ve heard the NY Times helped get us into War in Iraq. But you think they’ve done a “heckuva job”? I’ve also heard whoever was in charge back when Jews were disappearing in Germany, downplayed the horror.

Is that true? A German friend told me if the U.S had taken in all the Jews who wanted to come here back then, there wouldn’t have been the need for Israel. So was the same family the owner of the NY Times back then?

I don’t know the Times. The Chicago Tribune infuriated me, way more than occasionally, in the 33 years we lived in the 2nd most Repub. County in the U.S, DuPage, in IL.

Would George Ryan have become governor if the Trib hadn’t praised his “get things done” skills so much? The truck license scandal was not really investigated when it should have been. The wife of one of their political reporters worked for Ryan.

Newspapers choose what is fit to print, where to place it, and if there will be follow-up or connecting dots. The Trib loved Polls, maybe still does, but we are supposed to be “one nation”, and I feel sick that we are constantly divided into categories.

Newspapers seem to want to be popular, more than they want to print news. Has that hole in the Pentagon shown on
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-8260059923762628848 been in any newspaper yet?

If the Washington Post is such a great newspaper, wouldn’t they have been at the Pentagon on 9-11 taking their own photos? Have you seen any printed, on what day, please?

We were in Italy when 9-11 happened, and assumed our Free Press would find out everything. I don’t know the reporters you named who were let go, but did they investigate 9-11?

William Thomas, who explains what always happened to errant planes, before 9-11, on p.62 of Jim Marrs’ book, “inside Job”, calls himself an investigative reporter. Do you know him?

http://www.fromthewilderness.com/free/ww3/02_11_02_lucy.html has all this info about shorting, and short selling, and says the CIA and Wall St., have always had a close connection. I did not know that. Has the WSJ given its timeline and
investigation of all that?

Thank you

Letter to Maureen Dowd at the NY Times:

It’s sheer pleasure to read your columns; thank you so much.

But did I miss something? I foolishly watched:
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-8260059923762628848, and haven’t been able to sleep since.

If that’s the real hole in the Pentagon on 9-11, how would a Boeing 757 leave the adjacent windows and grass outside, untouched?

That silvery flash from an obstructed parking lot video satisfied you?

I’m 64 and addicted to newpaper comics, but I don’t think blogs have asked about that hole either. Why not?

Rudolf Vrba, the Holocaust survivor who escaped to prove it, said “the strength of the Final Solution was its secrecy, its impossibility”.

Jim Marrs’ book, “Inside Job”, esp. William Thomas on p.62 and the seismographic evidence at Columbia University, and the financial stuff on http://www.fromthewilderness.com/free/ww3/02_11_02_lucy.html; all dismissed as “conspiracy theory”?

On 9-11, the Pentagon seems to have been like the hospital in “The Godfather” when Michael went to see him. It’s too late to stop the murders, but should we allow them to get away with it?

George Crile’s book, Charlie Wilson’s War, showed what one Congressman and one CIA agent could pull off, for 8 years.

Now I notice that report on voice synthenization went out of the news real fast; Bush suddenly goes to India; Orrin Hatch leaked NSA info 2 hrs. after 9-11, etc., etc., but the NY Times sends 50 reporters out to solve the mystery of the Clinton marriage?

"The New Yorker" , in Jan. or Feb, I think, had an article quoting this pope at a cemetery
in Germany. I can't remember exactly, but he said something like all the people who
wreaked revenge on Germany for WWI , were responsible for WWII.

That Holocaust survivor who recently died, said the monstrous thing was that nobody believed it.

Richard Cohen of the Washington Post seems truly horrified that Hitler could happen,
but doesn't wonder about 9-11?
I'm a 64 year old woman; we were in Italy till October in 2001, and I thought like
everyone else about 9-11.

Then I watched

If that is the hole in the Pentagon, why was there no hue and cry by the Media?
If there is seismic evidence of 2.1 before each tower went down, why hasn't Columbia University told us?
William Thomas on p.62 of Jim Marrs' book, "Inside Job", describes what happens in the
Pentagon when a plane goes off course. Who turned the whole place off on 9-11? And why have they all been rewarded?

How could the Church not see, you ask? But you don't see anything alarming in that
video? Too hard to believe that Nazi-equivalents could have allowed, aided, and enhanced
9-11? And our "Free Press" doesn't want to look.

Another eze column for Geo. Will. Critique Al Gore. Throw in a word I had to look up, “indirection”. Is he calling Lincoln, and Gore, deceitful? Who fooled all the people that a Boeing 757 made that hole in the Pentagon? http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-8260059923762628848

Lincoln should have done emancipation sooner? 5 years almost. Still no explanation of why the Pentagon on 9-11was like the hospital in “The Godfather” when Al Pacino’s character went to see him.

Read William Thomas on p.62 of Jim Marrs’ “Inside Job”’.

The seismograph at Columbia University registered 2.1,
twice, spiking before each trade tower went down. Has anyone at any newspaper, which brag that they give us in-depth news, explained that?

And who was the young man in the Pentagon basement coming and going to Cheney?

Joe Wilson pointed out that everybody knows his wife’s name, but nobody knows the name of the person who put those 16 words into Bush’s speech. Our “free press” should be telling us about who got us into War. Leave Al Gore in peace. Thank you

David Brooks writing on the savagery of our enemies, was in the newspaper the same day as the photo of the new Chilean president, who was tortured by Pinochet; who was put in power by us? On September 11, 1973?

PalmBeachPost, 5--31-06, article by Alan Gomez and Dara Kam, “Gov signs hi-tech incentives package”

Is this like affirmative action? “Gov. Bush sets aside $200 Million for Burnham Institute”, with another $45 million to incentivize other minority, oops! hi-tech companies to move to FL?

A forever sales tax holiday for companies buying research and development stuff? Tax breaks for space industry companies too? And $35 million for the Kennedy Space Center? Look up at the pretty rockets, Johnny. No, you can’t swim in the river.

“During times of abundance, it is smart to reinvest some of these one-time revenues back into our economy to attract capital investment and create high wage jobs, that in turn, generates recurring revenue for state and local government”: Governor Jeb Bush.

Wasn’t it Repubs that fought high-wage union jobs tooth and nail? Unions demand payment from “their” workers, and decide who will be allowed onto a job site. Now Repubs restrict what businesses can come in, and take our taxes for “their” chosen industries?

Unions were often accused of “strongarm” tactics. Jeff Atwater seems to be warning Burnham that they who hesitate to commit are lost.
