East of the Sun, West of the Moon

East of the Sun, West of the Moon

Here is good news. For any of you out there nostalgic for the lovable extra terrestrial, NASA is beaming out songs into deep space trying to lure anything that might be out there to our shores. The bad news is that scientists warn that transmitting songs could put the earth at risk of an alien attack--If some terrestrial hears the lyrics of a rapper, or listens to the boring tunes of the Beatles, our goose is cooked. Here's a suggestion that just might could save life on earth. Recall immediately the signals and begin sending out the following: Mozart and Beethoven symphonies and piano sonata, a deluge of jazz--Louis Armstrong, Duke Wellington, Fats Waller, Charley Parker--and if some of the aliens are racists and don't like African-American music, we hit them with grace, sophistication, and wit à la Cole Porter, George and Ira Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Jerome Kern, and Lorenz Hart.

Who’s Cheering for Bin Laden?

Who’s Cheering for Bin Laden?

During the German occupation of my homeland in the Second World War there were nightly shouts of "Vasta Rommel" by certain Greeks. "Vasta" in Greek means "Hold on." In other words, Greeks were praying for the great Erwin Rommel to hold against Montgomery's 8th army. The German officers who were billeted in our house were immensely flattered. Until, that is, Fraulein, my German nanny, informed them that those shouting "Vasta Rommel!" were black marketeers hoping for an Axis victory because that ensured bigger profits. The neo-cons are essentially shouting "Vasta Bin Laden!" The more bloodshed, chaos and disruption, the more it gives Israel the excuse to practice ethnic cleansing. The more the military-industrial complex thrives. The greater the hold of the neo-con influence within the White House.

America First!

America First!

When traditional conservatives, liberals and others argue that America’s hyper-interventionist foreign policy is the cause of many of our problems, that we would like to see the U.S. do less around the world is called “isolationist” or worse. But like it or not, Israel and the U.S. are seen as one-in-the-same in the Middle East, a fact that should make Americans uncomfortable given the never-ending instability in that powder keg of a region. Given the recent events in Gaza, perhaps it’s time for a new cuss word when discussing American foreign policy - “interventionist” - a much more dangerous prospect than simply minding your own business.
