Vol. 5, No. 26 -- July 1, 2012
and the Constitution
Getting less out-of-touch with nature through local produce and Papua New Guinea coffee. Recent petty scandals in the meat industry (Pink Slime, "meat glue") get exposed in the corporate news media ... but not the industry's real crimes and scandals. New product at the supermarket: "water enhancer."
Summing it all up, Alexander Cockburn argues that our U.S. form of government is best described as "fascism."
Music added: from Leonard Cohen, "Democracy"
New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "boiler room") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
