    I had never heard of the project.  But then unfortunately so much new information only confirms or vivifies the atrocities to the mind that it's a mixed blessing for the receiver. So much to do...everywhere.

    They are doing very important work and I'm always impressed with your and troutfishing's diaries, as well as others more randomly informing us of humanitarian deficiencies.

    Also that they have the funding for the technology is terrific, and I'll make a small donation when I can.  I like to support the ALCU and SPLC locally.

    I think one of the great battles that we are soon going to encounter is the technology censorship that has been attempted several times now with "protection" legislation. With the increased warnings and remarks about cyber-terrorism recently, there will be renewed restrictive attempts.  While they are valid, to an extent, the authoritarian rightwing and some plutocrats will put strong influence and megabucks into a sweeping reform effort to serve their own ends.

    We all know the tremendous abuses that have been created under the very generalized terrorism threats.

    So strangely, so ironically, in the sixties and seventies especially, poverty was frequently an issue that was discussed and documented in the traditional/mainstream media.  Today it's largely ignored except in a remote, generalized sense and the point of view is mostly one of not wanting to help the impoverished and destitute but rather how little can we do as a nation to give the impression that we are addressing the problem.

    More: Some men think the Earth is round, others think it flat; it is a matter capable of question. But if it is flat, will the King's command make it round? And if it is round, will the King's command flatten it?
