When Nixon resigned I was living in Massachusetts and proudly placed a bumper sticker on my car that expressed the title of ths blog entry because Massachusetts was the ONLY state that did not vote for Richard Nixon.

As many of you know (or don't) I have been working on a DVD destined for Jesuit schools around the English speaking world. It is a series of three 40 minute videos on the topics of Education, Identity and Social Justice.

Maybe at last the Portland City Council is ready to give up this charade of pretending to stand for "freedom" and "liberty", and surrender itself to the will of our new Fascist-corporate government; a government that arrogantly punishes those who oppose its practices with malice, which the states have always done to persons who can't defend themselves. It's the American way! What times the pow wow?

I happen to admire a lot of what Chuck Colson has done since Watergate. His Prison Fellowship ministry and his efforts to bring all Christians together closer than they've probably ever been in this nation's history are simply astounding.
