On The Many Ways We Deal With Rapists (tags)
â€Ž"When I first started out as a rape crisis advocate I did not think there was any hope for justice beyond reporting to the police, and even though I could criticize them as an institution for evils like violence and corruption, I figured they would still help a victim in need. I was proven horribly wrong enough times that I had to change my position. My rage and disappointment and disgust required me to change my position."

Venice Boardwalk ordinance draft looks like it's going to fail it's duties (tags)
Venice Boardwalk has been a big loss to the City- how it is seen by Los Angeles' tourist crowds, and to LA's own image as an artistic or art-supportive environment. Commercial vending of cheap re-sale-mdse. bought at any local wholesaler while using City sidewalk free spaces ruins any art scene. City Council doing a draft that looks bad so far.

Edgar Allan Poe: A Tragic, but Talented, American Original (tags)
Edgar Allan Poe, poet, novelist and literary critic, died in 1849, age 40, under mysterious circumstances, in Baltimore, MD. The British author, Peter Ackroyd, insightfully captures the trials and tribulations of this great man of letters in his latest tome, “Poe: A Life Cut Short.” Poe invented the modern detective story and his poem, “The Raven,” is a classic in the genre. Ackroyd reveals Poe’s battle with the bottle, and adds a wrinkle: his aversion to sex!
Obama and the illusion of a post-racial America (tags)
His candidacy is seen as an indication that racial barriers no longer exist. Many see progress in the fact that a black man can run a campaign in which race is incidental. Yet it’s taken Obama’s embrace of post-racialism to lend viability to his campaign. Some activists see him as the culmination of a trend of black leaders moving away from the communities they’ve traditionally served and closer to the political and corporate power that dominates the Democratic Party.

Ag Industry Threatened by Animal Rights (tags)
As both the law and Big Ag respond to consumer pressures for humane treatment of animals, agriculture representatives fear a slippery slope that could lead to an end of their business as they know it, adding a meaningful wrinkle to the debate between so-called new welfarists and abolitionists, who ought to be teaming up in a full-court press on the industry (keeping them on the defense) rather than wasting time and efforts criticizing each other.

Pro-Israel Donors Rally For Joe, as Left Takes Aim (tags)
What is insidious about the two pro-Israel PACs mentioned. They don't reveal what they stand for in their names and both PACs are from outside of Connecticut. It is the policy of pro-Israel PACs across the country to only contribute money to politicians outside of their respective states based solely on a candidate's position on Israel. In other words, these Israel-Firsters, for they are nothing less than that, have made a policy decision that the welfare of Israel should have a higher priority than the desires of the voters in the states where they funnel their contributions. No dual-loyalty problem for these guys.

COUPWATCH: The Court Packs Itself (tags)
No Justice, No Justices--it's not just a wild-eyed idea from the fringe. After Lincoln's assassination the Congress blocked Andrew Johnson's threat to consolidate the conservative wing of the Court, preventing the replacement of retiring justices by the man made President by John Wilkes Booth. A similar logic applies today, argues distinguished political philosopher and constitutional scholar Bruce Ackerman (author of "Social Justice in the Liberal State") in an article published in The American Prospect.
