Daniel Ladinsky - Love Poems from God

The Yellow Times web site now says to "Please check back on Wednesday, April 2, 2003". Looks like they expect to be back up tomorrow.

Garry Reed, The Loose Cannon Libertarian - Violence for Peace - on the absurdity of violent protests for peace.

Not all protests were violent, of course, and not all were anti-war. CNN, as you might expect, featured the violent anti-war demonstrations and then tagged on a few dovish pro-war and pro-peace reports at the end of their story. Prayer vigils and sing-alongs don't make for great headlines. But let's hope that our libertarian activists, whether pro or anti-war, limited their activism to these latter pursuits. This is where it gets dicey when making ad hoc common cause with non-libertarian groups. The enemy of my enemy is not necessarily my friend. Not when anti-war simply means "alternative violence." Go out to a nice little pro or con war rally with your newfound non-libertarian chums and find yourself flinging somebody else's credenzas and bar stools off a rooftop -- along with your non-coercion principles.
