War Happens (The Indypendent)

Donald Paneth | I’m on my way to the theater. Is any place safer than the New York City subways? Transit police are on duty. Crime is down.
An idyllic setting in contrast to the world stage. In Stuff Happens, David Hare scrutinizes historical and contemporary events and the perception of them by participants, playwright, and public. Hare begins with U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld’s shrug as he considers chaotic, murderous occurrences in Iraq – “Stuff happens!”

Carol Lipton | Armed Madhouse, the latest book by BBC journalist Greg Palast, is both audacious and ambitious.

Movie Review: An Inconvenient Truth

Hoipolloi Cassidy | The high peak drama in Al Gore's movie "An Inconvenient Truth" comes when Professor Gore explains how a frog dumped in hot water will jump right out, but if you gradually heat the water - at which point a collective gasp goes through the many sub-teen girls in the audience - and then Uncle Al seems to smile out at the kids and tells them, but we don't want the frog to be hurt do we, and the movie cuts to a giant cartoon hand pulling the cartoon frog from the jar and placing it on a lawn chair. Somehow that half-wit frog on his lawn chair, too dumb to thank us, reminds me of George Bush. more...  0 Comments
