What if they don’t plan to tell us? A Halloween tale

I’m sure it has something to do with the time of year, but I’ve been thinking about nightmarish things lately. And most of them are real things. Even the debt ceiling/government shutdown debacle is something of a joke when you think about it. Yes, it would be… embarrassing if the US defaulted and bad things […]

Who in NYC wants to see a play about a Clown for Peace??(update)

In case you didn’t know, I have a touring play called A CLOWN, A HAMMER, A BOMB, AND GOD. It is about a pacifist priest named Carl Kabat who disarmed a Minuteman III missile on Good Friday while wearing a clown suit. It has been done a lot over the years, but it went on […]

Five people doing more to stop drone strikes than I am

The cynicism about the government’s lies (between the JFK conspiracy theorists and the Watergate Reality theorists) was borne out by […]

This will be the full version of the play, incorporating both information about the second anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street Movement […]

Fukushima in focus–this week’s Sex and Politics

This Thursday on Sex and Politics, We’ll be speaking to Karl Grossman. Grossman has spent the last few decades writing about all things nuclear–everything from nuclear power to nuclear weapons to NASA’s use of plutonium power to drive its satellites. He’s a frequent citation in Project Censored, which tries to share stories that are well-researched […]
