Jon Stewart -- he delivers! http://www.crooksandliars.com
If that's not clear enough, what the heck is?!??!
(His speech follows the tradition of another American hero, Michael Moore, at his Oscar performance.)

I can't imagine how hard it must be to tell the truth from THE HEART of the propoganda machine -- at their own awards ceremony. (I've had major stage fright giving presentations in Spanish class, or teaching 300 people how to use software, or playing bass in a gig with my last band. Not quite the same scale! HA HA)

One worry is that media can actually consume it's own 'counter-media', and rather than spawning any true 'anti-fascist' actions, counter-media may encourage media consumers to just sit & watch the battles for their world on TV.

If I didn't invite you yet, Corinna & I are having a 'sign-making' party in Berkeley on Fri 9/23 @ 6pm, in preparation for the SF Peace Rally supporting the huge March on Washington on 9/24 @ 11am. If you want to come for the party, give me a call, come & make a sign, meet some of our friends!!! (It won't be at our new pad but at her Grandmother's house, b/c we're moving boxes still.)

The marchers have permits to protest directly in front of the White House! I was amazed to hear that. They're estimating at least 500k marchers in Washington, DC! To me, that's Democracy: people demanding representation.

To quote a beautiful slogan, "Don't Tread on Me!" and "No Taxation Without Representation!" Some parts of history are cyclical -- sorta.

counter media like the series Over There? (only caught a few minutes of it but they were a hot soldier chick stripping to her skivvies)

also just caught Tim Robbins show Embedded (running on cable), it was better than the promos let on, some good performances..

My sign was "Impeach King Bush" and "End the Class Wars". :)

In SF, they said 20k (news) and 50k (Answer.org), and in Washington DC they said 300k people.

Didn't see ANY footage of this, but I don't watch much TV anyway, so...
