This post is from the JMBzine Blog Vault, which means it is a very old blog post that I wrote at a very different time of my life. My views on religion (I’m now a Humanistic Jew), politics (today I’m a democratic socialist), and many other subjects (LGBTQ+ inclusion, abortion rights, etc.) have drastically changed over the years, so please bear this in mind when reading this post.

If you enjoy art on spiritual themes, check out The Art Concordance

Here’s some more links for those of you who choose to not only be media consumers, but rather be media producers: Camcorders in Activists’ Hands: Tools for Change Good evening, here is the real news by Paul O’Connor The latest from a group that is trying to free the airwaves of Austin,TX and surrounding areas

(2022): Since the statute of limitations is long up, I can say that this group attempted to build some simple transmitters but were not successful in actually getting up and running, unfortunately.

Today’s articles of note:

MSNBC: Death of a Small Town – Even the mayor is moving on in Bisbee, North Dakota, the next ‘rural ghetto’ victim – I wonder what the answer is, if any. My own roots go back to rural Oklahoma, but I myself can’t imagine living like my grandparents did two miles from the nearest neighbors. Maybe telecommuting will change all of this?

(2022): Interestingly enough, only a few months later (in December), I would end up living in that same farm house.

Unfortuantely this is a broken link, as I can’t find it archived anywhere.

NY Times: If Oak malady moves east, many trees could die – Another sad story. It sounds like Texas needs to set up road blocks to disenfect all of the yuppies coming here from California so our beautiful Live Oaks won’t be destroyed.

NY Times: The map that named America may now call it home The latest news on the Pacifica radio controversy

(2022): broken link, can’t find it archived anywhere, but I did find some other content from the website here.
