Ashcroft's Attack on Greenpeace

For years we have worked to end environmental destruction and human rights abuses in Brazil's Amazon rainforest. Destruction of these habitats threatens clean air and water, animal and plant species, and the people and cultures who depend on forests for their way of life. Large criminal enterprises, using bribery, extortion, slavery and murder, continue to ravage the Amazon and export their contraband.

Last year, two Greenpeace activists climbed aboard a ship carrying Amazon mahogany wood. They held a banner that said "President Bush: Stop Illegal Logging."

Instead of halting the shipment, the government is prosecuting Greenpeace in federal court in Miami. It has charged Greenpeace under an obscure 19th-century law never intended for this purpose. A trial is now set for December. [more]

With our tax dollars, Ashcroft fights his own fundamentalist wars on Tommy Chong, people who fight hard for clean air and water, and bare-breasted statues. Fundamentalist religion = the true enemy of the people.

Say hello to Naked Protesters & Nude Activists!

Big thanks to new Samizdat harbingers: Bruce Wilson of this great page on global warming and Metafilter where he is known as “Troutfishing”, Jeremy Wells of Betacorpo.net, Madeleine Kane of MadKane.com, Weird Pixie of Ollapodrida, Bruce of The River, Benedict Spinoza of Benedict@Large and HyperSpaceGirl!

Thank you all!

In addition to thanking all of the new harbingers by name I would also like to start thanking all of the new blogs which permalink American Samizdat (who I also add to our Friends list on the lower right hand side of the samizdat): TomNadeau.com, Que Bola, I.D. FLUX, Left I on the News, information virus, weblog without a name, likesunday, irritant, Betacorpo.net, We Don't Agree, But, DiVERSiONZ, Free-Market.Net, The Left End of the Dial and MadKane.com!

Thank you all!

(Next: I need to update the samizdat sidebar and blogrolling list, which will soon also go onto Peep Show Stories--sorry for the delay. Also, if I inadvertently left anyone out of the list of people who permalinks the Samizdat, please drop me a line and let me know--drmenlo (at) well.com . . . and, of course, also please let me know if you know of anyone interested in being a harbinger for the Samizdat . . . )

Thank you to all of the harbingers for your continuing excellent work!

BookWars . . . now on dvd. Great flick, I recommend it highly. Via librarian.net.

There once was a time when I was obsessed with movies--that's all I wanted to do: write movies, make movies, be in movies . . . watch movies. I applied to AFI when I was about 20 or 21--didn't get in. I got a sort of break when I became the arts editor of my community college paper (Northern Virginia, Alexandria campus)--for there, stacked up in the in box of their tiny office were nothing but long disused piles of screener invites. I was probably the only reviewer who went to every single screening for years . . . my favorite theatres were the Key and Biograph in Georgetown, but the MPAA theatre was also nice (big plush red seats; once Ralph Nader sat in on a screening there--he brought his own popcorn [there is no concession stand at the MPAA, natch]). Soon I befriended a publicist who worked for Miramax, October Films, Sony Classics, among others. She tossed me a few jobs driving movie people around. My first job was to pick up Indochine director Regis Wagnier from the airport. He said, "I saw the steps Rocky ran up when the plane did circles before landing."

"No," I said. "That was in Philadelphia."

He gave me a look: "Don't depress me, [Menlo]."

(I got slightly lost on our way then to the Four Seasons in the Georgetown neighborhood of DC, which eventually got back to the head of Sony Classics . . . )

Eventually my film interest waned as I got into other things--starting a gonzo newspaper at Georgetown U, being a bum in Seattle and a fisherman in Alaska, temping at a ton of Seattle landmarks in the latter half of the nineties (including Amazon.com in '96, Starbucks corporate HQ, Washington Mutual, IBM, etc.), getting into politics for the first time in my life culminating in the WTO protests of '99 (seeing a police riot radicalizes you, man!), blogging and writing for the Corpse . . . (I only wrote about film once, here) . . .

Now, ten years later, I want my own dv camera and a Mac powerful enough to edit the footage on. I want to sit in movie theatres as it rains outside for weekends on end, immersed. I want to get a big tv for my bedroom and go through a stack of dvds on a blissful cinematic binge, racking up the esoterica. I'm saving up.

I already have my soundtrack:

The Second Annual Boobie-Thon for Breast Cancer

How Economics May Reshape Green Policy


Even though "economy" and "ecology" come from the same Greek root - "oikos," or "house" - reconciling the marketplace and nature has never been easy.

One measures things in dollars and cents. The other sees the world more intangibly, sometimes ineffably.

For this reason, it's always been an uphill fight for environmentalists arguing to protect the landscape, save an obscure species from extinction, or clean up the air and water. Opponents are quick to rebut with bottom-line statistics about jobs lost and productivity harmed.

It came as a surprise, therefore, when the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) recently declared that environmental regulations are good for the economy. [more]


How did this one manage to get past the ruthlessly anti-clean air and water White House censors? Oh yea, they musta had other things on their mind. You see? When the evil henchmen currently running this country don't stop it, the US government can actually do something good for the people. The US government is full of a lot of great and talented and truly compassionate people, folks. I know, I used to work there myself. My father dedicated his whole life to it, as did his wife; my mother spent some time there, as did her third husband, her mother and father, too (after he came back from WWII--had been in Pearl Harbor when it was bombed). So in this case, the OMB in announcing that a clean environment was better for the economy seemed to get it right. We should applaud them for it.

Unless, of course, it isn't what it seems.

Anyway, this is a fascinating topic for me--the merging of a fervently pro-environmental stance with a pro-robust economy is a real intellectual growth area coming up: calling healthy minds . . .

Cool drawing by a guy named Sean Stepanoff . . . unfortunately he doesn't have a site, but an email addy . . . found at the always super-cool Wooster Collective.

I just saw this cover tonite and it made me laugh--brilliant.

You know, I have no doubt that all the Anti-Bushies will coalesce behind the most winnable (not perfect, not a savior, just most winnable) Democratic candidate next year and kick Bush's ass. No doubt, that is, so long as there is a free and fair election.

And then this new coalition which worked together to beat Bush will make damn sure that no new group of crazy-ass, religious-fundamentalist power-hungry whack-jobs will ever try to take over the world again.

Well, they can try.

Regime Change 2004: Saving the World Starts Here

(yo, DNC, here's an ad idea: show Bush saying "We have to find the leakers" footage, then goto black screen and white letters and voiceover saying: "Remind you of anyone?" then goto footage of OJ: "I'm going to find the killer!" then say, "In fact, Bush had two months to find the leaker--instead, he did nothing." . . . etc.)
