Waters on “Free Speech”
The Baltimore Icon and celebrated film director, John Waters of “Hairspray” and “bad
taste” fame, shared his views on the controversial ... all » issue
of “Free Speech” in our society and its limits. His comments
were part of a “Symposium on Free Speech,” cosponsored by the
Maryland Institute College of Arts (MICA) and the Maryland branch of the
ACLU, on September 17, 2007, in Baltimore, MD. Mr. Waters recalled his many
problems with the now defunct Maryland Film Censor Board getting his early
movie classics publicly presented; the heroics of “Grove Press” in
its censorship battles over banned books; and, generally, the matter of “Freedom
of the Press” in this country. Before a capacity audience, Mr. Waters,

varied as: Lenny Bruce; objecting to Spiro T. Agnew; Pro Peace protesters
at the Pentagon; “Red Necks;” cigarette ads; movie ratings;
the Internet; “The Block” in Baltimore City; ex-Maryland Governor
Harry Roe Hughes; MICA; and the atheist, the late Madalyn Murray O’Hair,
who he said: “loved being hated.” In his talk, Mr. Waters also
traced the history of how certain words have been held to be obscene, but
that after a period of time, those very same words have found their way
into the mainstream as a result of the evolving community standards.
September 21, 2007 Keith Olbermann Commentary
More Dangerous Bush Hypocrisy
On his first program since his appendicitis attack,
Keith delivers this scathing commentary in regards to the silly exercise
in condemning an ad by Moveon.org. So, let's see, people are dying, we can't
vote on a measure to give the troops enough rest, but we can waste time
on a meaningless stupid exercise such as this? So, do we now call for a
condemnation of the hate filled comments of Repugnican idiots such as Ann
Coulter and Michelle Malkin?
Worse yet, the question asked of the president
in regards to this idiotic crap was asked by a plant. The whole crap was
choreographed. And shame on
those cowardless 25 Democrats who fell for this horse manure and voted
with the Republicans including my idiot Senator Diane Feinstein who is
as tits on a bull.

It's just not possible." That was the sentence we heard over and over
from families who had firefighter sons, brothers, husbands and fathers
killed on 9/11, from experts on emergency

4, 2007 Your House Without You
In The World Without Us, Alan
Weisman offers an utterly original approach to questions of humanity's
impact on the planet: he asks us to envision
our Earth, without us. In this far-reaching narrative, Weisman explains
how our massive infrastructure would collapse and finally vanish without
human presence; what of our everyday
stuff may become immortalized as fossils; how copper pipes and wiring would
be crushed into mere seams of reddish rock; why some of our earliest buildings
might be the last architecture left; and how plastic, bronze sculpture,
radio waves, and some man-made molecules may be our most lasting gifts
to the universe.
