ARTICLES:
Prison Sentences In Elder Swindles - By Jim Scanlon
According to the Metropolitan News Enterprise, a Los Angeles newspaper, a retired Superior Court Judge, William Sullivan was charged with misconduct last November by the Commission on Judicial Performance for questionable financial dealings with two trusts while on the bench.
FBI Sends Mass Murderer To California, Calls Him Choir Boy - By Stephen Simac
Among other dirty secrets George Bush wants to keep from the public are documents of FBI misdeeds that would blow their cover as good guys fighting to rid America of Evil. One of the most offensive FBI deals gave a serial killer from Boston a new identity and moved him to California in exchange for testifying against his Mafia bosses.
Possible Ban Of Roundup On Corte Madera Bike Paths - By Carol Sterritt
As both a reporter and as an activist, I sometimes fall into the throes of over-enthusiasm. This past week has been one of those times. On the evening of February 15th. I received a phone call. It was Ginger Souders- Mason, Chairwoman of a local group called "Marin beyond Pesticides."
Damning Report On Pt. Reyes EAH Housing Sewage- By Louis Nuyens
The Ecumenical Association for Housing's (EAH) Point Reyes Station project proposal has been fraught with controversy, both in terms of its overall impact on the town, and in terms of its technical execution.
Israel Prepares For Final Solution As Washington Smiles On - By Karen Nakamura
In mid-February, as Israel continued enforcing the final solution to its pesky Palestinian problem, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon talked with US President George W. Bush concerning his desire to launch an all-out attack against the Palestinians. He needed to hit them hard in order to raise the morale of the Israeli army and to save his fragile coalition in the Knesset.
Harry Pothead And the Axle of Evel - By Stephen Simac
Maybe it was Bush threatening to start WW III, maybe the cold rain, maybe just lack of herb, but I was really, really depressed. Then miraculously it lifted, replaced by a homicidal rage. Far, Far Better to kill someone else than myself I thought.
Is Free Enterprise Capitalism Collapsing?
Rampant Greed and Corruption. - By Jim Scanlon
Ten years after the catastrophic collapse of the Euro-asian Soviet Communist system, there is ample evidence that the American Corporate Free Enterprise Capitalist system is so out of anyone's control, and has been so corrupted by the unimaginable selfish greed of it's elite managers, that it too is headed for a collapse similar to it's superpower twin

Measure D: Unnecessary, Irreversible Change - By Dale Polissar
A few essential considerations about Measure D, the proposal to widen the road into Bolinas for addition of bicycle lanes.
Vote For Measure D's Bike Path
The Bolinas Community Plan calls for the creation of safe and well-designed all-weather bicycle, pedestrian trails throughout the community. Everyone knows that walking and bicycling are good for us, for our children, and for the planet. We knew this in the early 70s when we created the Community Plan, and the environmental and geopolitical developments of the last 25 years have proved us right.
The Death of Free Speech - By Doug Patton
"We must remember that a right lost to one is lost to all." - William Reece Smith, Jr. What did you learn in school today, Billy? Oh, just the usual stuff, Grandpa. The teacher told us about the greatest people in American history. You know, people like Malcolm X and Hillary Clinton and John McCain.
They Hate Us : We Hate Ourselves - By Frank Scott
Our economic system turns nature into garbage and then profits by selling that garbage in markets. It rewards investors in the immaterial environment of finance, and punishes workers in the material environment of society. It measures wealth by tonnage of waste, and sees poverty as a necessary factor in the creation of such wealth.
Oil And The Taliban - By Edward W. Miller
When you're wounded and left, on Afghanistan's plains,
And the women come out, to cut up your remains,
Just roll on your rifle, and blow out your brains,
And go to your Gawd, like a soldier.
-Rudyard Kipling
Wake Up To Mudflat Bay - By Judy Borello
In the February 21, 2002 edition of the Point Reyes Light, Jeanette Pontacq's letter to the editor titled "The Point Reyes Oligarchy" hit the nail on the head. She was referring to the Point Reyes Village Association not being the voice of Point Reyes Station as the county planners and supervisors have wrongfully perceived and acted upon.
Nexus Of Arrogance
"Whether it is a democracy, a dictatorship, or a parliament... the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders... All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."
Herman Goerring
