Harry Bowman | The letter by "Casino Jack" Abramoff to President Omar Bongo of Gabon mentions a neighboring African nation and a man named "Roger" not identified in the Washington Post report. The nation may be Equatorial Guinea and "Roger" may be known crony Roger Stone. Interestingly, Stone was involved in a fraudulent anti-casino effort similar to the one perpetrated by Abramoff and Bush Southeast regional campaign director Ralph Reed. The letter may be part of a similar attempt to extract money from persons with business before the US government. more... 0 Comments

Fred Goldstein | The working class leadership in France has been weak on this question and downright reactionary at times. Right now they need to stop retreating. They must not confine themselves to mere protests against reactionary measures of repression. They need to demand that all the cops be withdrawn, that the emergency decrees be revoked. They need to come out for the justified rebellion.
Juan Cole | A lot of the persons living in the urban outer cities (a better translation of cite than "suburb") are from subsaharan Africa. And there are lots of Eastern European immigrants. The riots were sparked by the deaths of African youths, not Muslims. Singling out the persons of Muslim heritage is just a form of bigotry. Moreover, French youth of European heritage rioted quite extensively in 1968. As they had in 1789. Rioting in the streets is not a foreign custom. It has a French genealogy and context. more... 1 Comments

Gisbert Otto | Instead of working out and overcoming the causal problems, people try to put a veil of the fun society over the whole-as in the times of Rome.. Ideologues elevate the principle of competition into a natural law with their attempt to immunize the market economy from everyform of criticism.. The simplest kind of Darwinism is the foundation of their ideology. In this perspective, the development of human cultures is as uncontrollable as evolution.. The assertion of eternal laws is an essential characteristic of all totalitarian movements (Hannah Arendt). more... 1 Comments
STEVEN PRESSMAN | In June 1987, President Ronald Reagan named Alan Greenspan to head the Federal Reserve. He was confirmed and took office in August. That October, the stock market crashed. The Dow fell more than 500 points in one day – its largest point drop in history. Greenspan immediately lowered interest rates and made it clear that he would keep lowering rates to ensure that the market meltdown would not create a depression, as the October 1929 crash had. more... 0 Comments

Retail Worker | The decision of NYU President John Sexton to withdraw union recognition from graduate employees represents an affront to the dignity of those workers and belies any notion that NYU is some sort of enlightened institution. In response to the University's move, on October 31, the NYU graduate workers union (GSOC/Local 2110 UAW) voted by an overwhelming 85% majority to withhold their labor in defense of the right to free association. I write to you because, as an NYU undergraduate, you are uniquely positioned to make a major contribution to the struggle for social justice by supporting this strike. I'm also writing because without your support this strike will end in defeat. more... 3 CommentsPage 11 | Page 9
