It is either walls or bones if it goes on any further, says Vitus Marker, son of army commander Widukind Marker, in the notorious Marker case over the removal of a phoney family home erected by the provincial government without clear order or convincing purpose. Marker argues if it were to turn out true that the building was specifically made for but not formally offered to him, and that it is cause for insanity of his father, and that a removal of the building could provide a circumstantial perspective for healing, then he does prefer the healing over the building.

I apologize for the weak structure in this article. I was hoping to write something that explained some of the material in the story, but ended up going a bit afield with the information. This article attempts to be neutral and nonpartisan, or at least not shrill, and avoids too much analysis. The nature of the Great Recession is difficult to sum up in a few pages, because it's a failure of a complex system with many parts, and many related behaviors, that led to the near-collapse of capitalism.

There are enormous natural resources in the Third World and billions of possible workers and consumers.

Barbara Lee: Why I Opposed the Resolution to Authorize Force... (tags)
It was a blank check to the president to attack anyone involved in the Sept. 11 events -- anywhere, in any country, without regard to our nation's long- term foreign policy, economic and national security interests, and without time limit. In granting these overly broad powers, the Congress failed its responsibility to understand the dimensions of its declaration. I could not support such a grant of war-making authority to the president; I believe it would put more innocent lives at risk.
