Editorials published in 2003.
2003 Evildoer Caught! No Secrets Revealed!
Mike Mosher
International interest will not idly let this big fish, Saddam Hussein, languish incommunicado in Guantanamo. Hopefully the dictator will not disappear forgotten in American brigs, like Bernard Coard of Grenada or Noriega of Panama, both removed from power by American occupation forces in the 1980s.
2003 Anti-Colonialism in Globe and Iraq
Joe Lockard
The American Empire relies heavily on towns like Globe for its human raw material, and social gathering points like Judy's Cook House become cheerleaders for an imperial ideology that seeks to 'civilize' Iraq.
2003 Harvest Winds
Mike Mosher
The cool winds of fall blow, blowing away celebrated persons and mere celebrities. Like the autumn leaves beginning to fall in America's east and midwest, names drop upon the obituary page.
2003 The Dangers of Direct Democracy
Scott Schaffer
California has, for most of the 20th and early 21st century, seemed like the last haven for liberals in the US.
2003 The 9/11 Official Mystery Novel and the Information State
Joe Lockard
By providing a text that on the one hand discusses mis-coordination of intelligence opportunities and lack of official fortuitousness, and on the other hand demonstratively deletes large passages concerning presidential knowledge and Saudi support for terrorism, the Joint Committee has published a mixed-genre work that is both official report and mystery novel.
2003 Order and Disorder in the Courts
Mike Mosher
Whereas the Court is still looked upon with suspicion for its hasty ruling on the 2000 Presidential election, we note a couple instances where it has affirmed common sense. Then let us turn our attention across the Atlantic, where another court indulges in folly.
2003 Egad! They Lied!
Jonathan Sterne
Much ado has been made about the Bush administration's lies.
2003 Iraq's New English Studies
Joe Lockard
The currency of the phrase "imperialism," which had once been the province of either history texts or marginal elements of the Left, recently has been revived and revitalized by right-wing Anglo-American intellectuals with close access to political power.
2003 World, War, Arts and Peace: March 20th in a Midwestern University
Mike Mosher
Besides intellectual, political and moral reasons against George W. Bush's vendetta against Iraq, I have personal reasons against this war.
2003 The New Great Awakening
Joe Lockard
The purgation of sin and Saddam will happen because this is the divine order and the Lord has taken the American president into his confidence?
2003 No a la Guerra / Free Iraq
Jonathan Sterne
Someone's got to say it on the left, so I'll say it for the record. Free the people of Iraq!
2003 The Mobilization of Middle America
Scott Schaffer
Recently, something has happened in countless Middle American towns and cities across the country: the people who are usually anti-political have been politicized.
2003 Missionary Democracy and American Empire
Joe Lockard
Democracy finds itself abused in the name of democracy.
