Steve Kowit

Steve read a brand new poem, as yet unpublished, called “A Moment with my Mother”, recalling an incident in 1950 or so when, as a 12-year-old, he discussed the newly founded state of Israel with his mother. It was fascinating to hear the innocence of a youngster overwhelm the training of an adult.


Karen Kwiatkowski

Karen talked about Andrew Marshall, the ‘Yoda’ of the Pentagon since 1973. 93 years old and still guiding our military… If he is the great wise man of the Pentagon then where the heck is the wisdom?


It’s the Empire, Stupid with Phil Farrugio

In this new segment our regular columnist Phil Farruggio presents his thoughts on a different topic every week.


Michael Annis

Michael Annis continued with “Brave New World Order”, and amazingly complex and vibrant piece he is sharing here. It’s a living piece that he continually updates, never published in its current incarnation.
