I think you will enjoy this.

You're probably still a racist, however.

With Libby's lawyers making the administration look worse than Fitzgerald ever did. Though I wonder how much of the evidence they're using was uncovered by Fitzgerald in the first place.

I seem to remember Fitzgerald catching a lot of flack for being a supposed partisan hack.

One of the highlights of Ivan Kral's DVD / video, DANCING BAREFOOT is the electrifying clip of Patti's appearance on a PBS television special, (which aired in the summer of 1978), entitled THE NIGHT OF THE EMPTY CHAIRS.  It was a show put together by Leonard Bernstein, and featured many well know artists, writers and performers (such as Arthur Miller),
reading from their work and speaking out against political oppression in other countries, as a benefit for Amnesty International.  Unfortunately, the clip used on the DANCING BAREFOOT DVD is only about half of Patti's performance, so here is the text of the entire reading, which was a piece written by the Czech band, The Plastic People of the Universe. 

Art Buchwald introduced Patti with the following remarks, which Patti took violent exception to, right in the middle
of her performance.
 

Art Buchwald:   Even rock bands are not spared from
political reprisal.  To tell about one group, called
The Plastic People, in Czechoslovakia, is Miss Patti
Smith.  Joining Patti, is her guest guitarist, Ivan
Kral.   


Patti Smith:  In the sixties there was a piece called
HUNDRED PER CENT that the Plastic People of the
Universe writ.  After a decade of harassment,
censorship, mace, lice - they were arrested in the
Spring of 1977.  All their work - the technology of
their work - everything built on blood and sweat, was
confiscated, which brought another blow in the face,
which mouths the tongue of love.   Rock 'n' roll: the
universal language of freedom.

General Off-Topic Board / I'm starting a rumor about Stanley
« on: January 08, 2007, 11:06:37 PM »
He persuades posters to attend CLS. Then he shuns them once they show up. In fact, he shuns everone. He's vindictive and a  backsliding Amish.

Provide additional Stanley truths in this thread.

General Off-Topic Board / Televized political coverage
« on: November 07, 2006, 01:39:17 AM »
The main political objective of television news is...

...a polarized, cynical electorate.

1. Higher ratings
2. More campaign ad revenue.

The end.

Yes? No?
