Puttin' on the Ritz in DC

Thank you, Dear Readers, for helping to send us to DC to cover the inaugural protests. In this issue, you'll see Judy Hanna's review of the trip, photos by our cub reporter, and several photo albums and video clips that will give you a sense of the moment. You can watch the photos in a slide show by selecting "slides" at the top of the photo. I especially love the photos of Granny D; it was a great honor to spend some time with her. My pictures.

If you have broadband, or are a dialup user with patience, I think you'll enjoy "Puttin' on the Ritz" a video from a sidewalk where real inaugural ball attendees mixed with barb-happy Billionaires for Bush.

Other DC videos snippits, to give you a sense of the zaniness that took some of the pain out of the weekend, include a quick bit by performance poet Chris Chandler, and one typist's sidewalk stenography activism.

Our new page - is dedicated to current news delivered in audio and video formats only. You'll find some of your favorite news sources, as well as a few new ones. If you have ideas of other audio and video news feeds to add, please let us know.

There are articles in this week's issue by Dennis Burke, Judy Hanna, David Swanson and Mike McNeely.

I'm having extreme doubts as to the validity of the puttin on the ritz movie. Please, if you wish to slam the rich and the elite, do so honestly; those people looked as though they were reciting lines for a school play.
"It's time we reversed the process" or something like that ... no person would say such a thing on camera.
