Upper Eastside Greenmarkets Very, Very Close

Peakguy | Regular readers know that I've been agitating to bring more locally grown food to my neighborhood for quite some time. This is because locally grown food consumes a lot less (about 75% less) fossil fuels than factory farm, industrial agriculture from long distances. This will be important as energy prices increase in preserving local farmland and decreasing the lines of supply for our food.
Well, that dream just got one step closer to becoming a reality tonight: The Streetfair committee of Community Board 8 voted in favor of both locations - PS 6 (82nd bet Madison & Park) AND St. Stephen's church (82nd bet 1st & York).

It was like a scene from Woody Allen movie about local democracy on the UES: Angry co-op boards, Park Avenue socialites, PTA moms, local food celebrity, politicians...if only I wrote screenplays!

Staff Revolt at Village Voice as Ridgeway Fired

Letters | In light of this distinguished track record, the decision last week by the Voice's new ownership to terminate Ridgeway is shameful. It also sends a terrible message as to the sort of coverage that the new ownership portends. We call on Voice Media executive editor Michael Lacey and chairman and CEO Jim Larkin to reverse his discharge. more...  10 Comments

Extended deadline: Contemporary American Radical Political Poster Art

Chuck | Radical political posters have long been a feature of American culture
and politics. From handbills posted during the Revolutionary War to
wheatpasted posters put up by anti-capitalist activists, radical street
art has been vital to political discourse in this country. Radical art
in public spaces has made a comeback in the past 15 years. Stencil art,
graffiti, guerrilla art, billboard alteration, posters and other format
have exploded into and onto public spaces. Much of the content of this art reflects opinions and ideas that most Americans never see or hear in the mainstream corporate media. more...  0 Comments

The Plague of Evangelicalism: An Aberrant Sect from the USA

fish | The very American travelling circus that is tent religion matured and found expression in the mass ‘conversions’ (come on down and be saved style) of Billy Graham, demagogue and showman, the forerunner of today’s Evangelicals. Plastic religion for a plastic society, Graham invented ‘Kentucky fried religion’, a fast consumable product that was accessible to the masses, requiring nothing but gleefully running to the stage and in spectacular fashion being ‘saved’ by Billy or one of his many imitators. Modern Evangelicalism was born, long arduous hours of meditation and prayer in the pursuit of Deity was a thing of the medieval past. more...  1 Comments
