Come With Me If You Want To Live
by Saab Lofton

"NO sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be ... Our statesmen, our businessmen, our everyman must take on a science fictional way of thinking, whether he likes it or not, or even whether he knows it or not. Only so can the deadly problems of today be solved."
--Issac Asimov (1920 - 1992)

Beware the Backlash Yet to Come
by Saab Lofton

"[Pat Buchanan's article entitled 'In the Long Run, Is the GOP Dead?'] is a fatalistic prediction that the GOP [Grand Ole Party or the Republican Party] is doomed because it can't promise enough free lunches for the inexorably rising percentage of non-white voters."
--Matt Taibbi, Rolling Stone Magazine

... I prefer the term Freedom Lunches myself ...

When the DC Comics character Green Lantern was created in 1940, he was an individual with a magic ring, but twenty years later, his back story was rewritten so that being a Green Lantern meant one was part of a collective.

Land Of The Free, My Ass !
by Saab Lofton

In Seattle, the Pike Place Market (a century old venue for merchants, craftspeople and small farmers) has its own monthly newspaper -- for the past several months, a literary serial of mine appeared in it. The serial is entitled Lady Coyote, which is about a fictitious street musician who sings for spare change and dispenses wisdom the way an ancient sage would.

Know Thy Enemy or Tea Party Hypocrisy by Saab Lofton

Know Thy Enemy
or
Tea Party Hypocrisy
by Saab Lofton

"In the case of Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, he's planning to hold back $614 million in 'performance bonuses' from the plane's lead contractor Lockheed Martin. (And you thought only bankers and financial wheeler-dealers got performance bonuses!) But it's striking that there are no tea party movements out in the streets of America demanding our money back or claiming that we're going to be broken by this."
--Tom Engelhardt, a Yale AND Harvard graduate, March 19th, 2010

Uganda and Arizona? We're Comin' Fo' Ya!

"While the wicked stand confounded, call me with thy saints surrounded."
--The Boondock Saints
