"I can do that." "I know a person that can help you." "Here's my card" "Nice to meet you" "Bye" In a matter of an hour I managed to meet a decent number of experts, professionals, and leaders from other communities that are all in the same proverbial boats as my current home town, Morris.

By Paul Kengor I was awakened at 4:45 a.m. earlier this week by a ringing telephone. A call that early in the morning often brings bad news--sometimes news of a death. I braced myself. The call was indeed about a death, but the news wasn't bad. The messenger was a producer for a television show requesting that I, half asleep, join her morning crew to discuss the killing of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. "He's dead?" I replied. "Wow. That's good news." By the time my wife arose, she found me grinning. I informed her of the reason for my excitement.
By Sheldon Richman Try as they might, apologists for the war in Iraq won't be convincing when they insist that, at worst, the Haditha "incident" (or was it a mishap?) was the unfortunate work of a few bad Marines. It was something much worse. When men trained to kill on a battlefield -- this wasn't the Salvation Army, after all -- are ordered into civilian areas where many residents see the troops as an occupying force rather than as liberators, what would you expect to happen? We hear war defenders complain that "the enemy" doesn't identify itself. Why should it?

We received a press release in the office the other day.
