  The close financial ties of former president George Bush to the immensely rich Saudi Arabian oligarchy and the Bin Laden family business, as well as other business interests, make it difficult to believe that President George W Bush, and his junta of advisors, many of whom served his father, will be effective in smashing up "terrorism."

Sharon Plows Path Of Belligerence - By Karen Nakamura
Leaning against a graceful manikin in the window of Deja Nu, a vintage clothing store on Fourth Street in San Rafael is a sign stating: "I hope it is still possible to love America and not love those who run it.

Living With Terrorism- By Alex Horvath
On the morning of September 11, and for two weeks after, I was without a television. Maybe it's because of this, and because I didn't watch a single moment of the World Trade Center disaster, I don't have the same feeling of gloom as the rest of the country. Instead, I possess a restless cynicism.
Black Point Developer Practices Miss Par Again - By Louis Nuyens
With a long history of environmental battles behind it, Black Point Partnership (BPP), a creation of the large developer, Spieker Properties, has once again run afoul of environmental watchdogs.
Harry Pothead And the Blue Crystal - By Stephen Simac
I was reading the news about the War on Terrorists. There is an endless parade of Americans riding on the administration's bandwagon, jeering anyone on the sidelines as unpatriotic. Bill Bennett, chain smoking drug moralizer, Lynn Cheney, erotic novelist and wife of vice president in hiding, Paul Wolfowitz, not in sheep's clothing, even Chelsea Clinton at Oxford were on the wagon.

God's Killers And Shoppers- By Frank Scott

The 911 disaster has covered for a murderous assault by the most powerful military force in history, on what is possibly the weakest, poorest nation on earth.
A Nation in Denial - By Edward W. Miller
Moving across the TV screen as the CNN camera zooms in, dust rises in a series of earth-shaking clouds, thundering along the foothills of the Hindu Kush just east of the Pakistan border near the Afghanistan cities of Kunduz and Taloqan.
Leonard Peltier: Make The World A Better Place - September 12, 2001
It is in the wake of the tragic attacks in New York that I write this statement. Today there is a great sadness in my heart for the thousands of victims, their families, and those who have personally witnessed the horrors of violence, death and destruction.
