A Strat House in the Hood?


Where are you?a€A
a€oeIa€™m in the Prince Vultan Suite at the Hochstetlera€A
a€oeIs that Queen I hear playing?a€A
a€oeUm, yeah!a€A
a€oeYoua€™re with your Delta Strat brothers again, arena€™t you Tony?a€A
a€oeUm, yeah, I guess so.a€A

Lloyd Alter1, Treehugger from Toronto, assures us that there is no cause for alarm. Strat-Houses will be supported by nacelles filled with helium, rather than carried aloft by explosive hydrogen like the zeppelins of old.

the dreams of the people zapped!! no more airships you say? daaang…. check out this humour at jcwinnie

Real Time With Bill Maher: Cornel West, Mos Def & Ralph Nader

Topics including Iraq, terrorism (Islamic, American and otherwise), Obama/Clinton, the Jena Six, OJ Simpson, the Boogie Man…
YouTube Preview Image

Bill: [On Islamic terrorists] You have to admit there are certain people who do want to kill Americans.
Mos: Yeah, uh, some of them are called The Police…

Mos: This is not about the Muslim or the Christian…the division of the Democrat/Republican, Muslim/Christian, uhhh, Autobot/Decepticon, Crypt/Blood, black/white: it’s all bullshit, because the bottom line is that Islam is not the threat; it’s not a problem.

Bill: [to Nader, on being a consumer advocate] Ralph, you’re bringing sexy back.
Ralph: [On his new book] There are at least three reasons why if my mother raised George W. Bush, we wouldn’t be in Iraq. One: she would have taught him history. Two: critical thinking. And three: how to listen.

Cornel: Truth lies prostrate on rugged heels with nameless cavalries. And what I mean is, it’s hard to find a space for truth, and it’s hard for truth to be a species of the good to have impact, in the face of corruption, mendacity, mediocrity and shortsightedness. So truth has to lie prostrate, which means we have to reveal it in its nekidness, even if that nekidness seems to be connected to a lack of power…
Bill: Let’s get the truth nekid right here on this table.

Bill: [New Rule] Sorry Mr. President, but slinking into somewhere unannounced and under cover of night isn’t an ass whooping; it’s a booty call.

Thanks to Kelena for the tip on this one!

William Rodriguez

YouTube Preview Image

William Rodriguez, is a native of Puerto Rico, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the State of New Jersey. On September 11, 2001, and for approximately nineteen years prior thereto, Rodriguez was employed as a maintenance worker at the World Trade Center (WTC) in New York, New York.

On 9/11, Rodriguez single-handedly rescued fifteen (15) persons from the WTC, and as Rodriguez was the only person at the site with the master key to the North Tower stairwells, he bravely led firefighters up the stairwell, unlocking doors as they ascended, thereby aiding in the successful evacuation of unknown hundreds of those who survived. Rodriguez, at great risk to his own life, re-entered the Towers three times after the first, North Tower impact at about 8:46 A.M., and is believed to be the last person to exit the North Tower alive, surviving the building’s collapse by diving beneath a fire truck. After receiving medical attention at the WTC site for his injuries, Rodriguez spent the rest of 9/11 aiding as a volunteer in the rescue efforts, and at dawn the following morning, was back at Ground Zero continuing his heroic efforts.

Rodriguez lost his employment of 19 years and his means of earning a living as a direct result of the attacks on the WTC on 9/11. Deeply affected, as one might imagine, by his experiences of 9/11, Rodriguez has, in a variety of capacities and through several different organizations, worked ever since that terrible day to help others who were affected by the atrocities committed. He has continued in these labors, notwithstanding the fact that, due to the loss of his employment, he has been unable to earn a living, and was even homeless for a time.

Peter Lehman Interview

California prides itself on being on the cutting-edge of new technologies as well as being the historical home of many important environmentally-friendly legislation.

But according to Professor Peter Lehman of Humboldt State University, over the last 20 years California has in fact ceded its position as world leader in the development of alternative and renewable energy to several European nations and Japan.

Prof. Lehman who heads the Schatz Energy Research Center which promotes a€oeclean and renewable energy,a€A notes that the advances abroad have been both technological and cultural:

Ita€™s become such a status symbol in Japan to have solar panels on your roofa€¦ that there is a company in Japan that sells fake solar panels so that you can put them on your roof and pretend to your neighbors that you have solar panels on your roof.

Thata€™s certainly quite a difference from the American marketplace where some might say the newly introduced a€oesuper SUVa€™sa€A by Ford and GM give neighbors a chance to show off their prowess at energy consumption a€" rather that energy production.

In the following interview, Prof. Lehman discusses the history and future of renewable energy research and development in California.

Ted Nugent And The Wall Street Journal

Occasionally, I make tongue-in-cheek references to the "dirty hippies." I actually picked up the reference from Digby, who uses the phrase, as I do, to refer to the almost pathological obsession rightwingers have for the sixties counterculture. Despite the fact that no one has seen a "dirty hippie" in a good 30 years, the rightwing noise machine is still shocked and horrified that anyone could possibly "drop out" of the capitalist rat race. Make no mistake, whatever else wingnuts mean by "freedom," the freedom to "drop out" is not part of the definition.

So anyway, there I am, perusing the latest offerings on the Wall Street Journal editorial page — which is the best place to monitor what the corporate ruling class is thinking — and what do I see but an article about "dirty, stinky hippies." That’s a direct quote. And of course, the article includes the usual crap about how simply awful those dreadful people were.

Forty years ago hordes of stoned, dirty, stinky hippies converged on San Francisco to "turn on, tune in, and drop out," which was the calling card of LSD proponent Timothy Leary. Turned off by the work ethic and productive American Dream values of their parents, hippies instead opted for a cowardly, irresponsible lifestyle of random sex, life-destroying drugs and mostly soulless rock music that flourished in San Francisco.

But wait, guess who wrote this article? How about this guy.

The Western Avenue And Vicinity Gallery

Chicago’s most vibrant art scene is not to be found in the galleries of River North or Wicker Park, but stretching along the city’s longest street, Western Avenue. The work in this spontaneous gallery is unpretentious and, for the most part, unheralded. Its functional purpose does nothing to diminish its creativity or its range, from isolated drawings to full-blown art environments. And though these pages include images from all over Chicago, most of them are from Western Avenue itself — the world’s most artistic street.
