The Second Annual Candlelight Vigil in memory of Leonard "Acorn" Peters is soon coming upon us. Last year many of you joined us and we're definitely looking forward to seeing you again this year.

The vigil is in memory of "Acorn," a tribal member who was murdered in cold blood by the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office, and to date has received no justice.

We're "Calling all People" to be with us at this important event, let us stand together in memory of and justice for "Acorn," that can only come with the exoneration of "Bear" Lincoln.

Overnight stays will be accommodated and our food we will share.

For more information do call and remember your contributions to this worthy cause will always be appreciated.

The War on Abortion

Your pages are sick -- I must also deduce you are sick! What evil evil people you must be- I am truly sorry you live in such a twisted way! Notice -- the law is on our side in this one and that is where it is going to stay!!!


I pray you find forgiveness and take responsibility for your insanity. Jesus is in no way the god of murder. If you want to follow his word work against divorce something he spoke directly about in great detalil!

How the Saddam Story Grew and Grew

I'd like to draw your attention to pages 167-175 of John Stauber and Sheldon Rampton's excellent book on the PR industry, "Toxic Sludge Is Good For You" (Common Courage Press). This section of a chapter on governmental use of PR for the means of promoting corporate interests, documents the demonization of Saddam during the Gulf War which is still evident today -- even blatanly evident, as demonstrated by Nicholas Burns' statement cited in Beibart's article. Also covered are the use of front groups such as "Citizens for a Free Kuwait," funded by Kuwait's oil-rich government and "in collusion with the Bush administration."

You may already be familiar with Stauber and Rampton's book, but I just wanted to call your attention to this part of it because of the information it holds relating to Breibart's article. Thanks for one of the greatest online periodicals out there, and keep up the great work.
