This weeks' good stuff

Was Hiroshima and Nagasaki a Sin? Reprint from NCR on Z. Every once and a while my church actually takes a principled stance that isn't pure reaction. Too bad the rest of the church doesn't follow the Latin Church and embrace Liberation Theology, which is the only thing that tracks true to the Gospels.

New Orleans and the Death of the Common Good Chris Floyd looks at the Bush policies that led to the Gulf Coast disaster.

I learned the difference between "finding and looting" this week. Good thing the ruling class teaches us that distinction from day one in our path of indoctrination. Good white folk find. Bad, bad black folk loot. Despite the insane ravings of racist apologists like John Perazzo, this nations' racism is beyond institutional. Radical Fundamentalist Calvinists blamed the destruction of New Orleans on homosexuals. If we are trying to attribute this to divine retribution, maybe we should look no further than Bush's extreme hubris and crimes against humanity in Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib.
