If the press turns against us, so will liberty…

I started this Sunday as I do most. Rise early enough to enjoy my favorite political talk shows and then the tail end of CBS Sunday Morning. After breakfast and coffee,  I often spend the day relaxing in preparation for the long week ahead along with a few errands. Today, one of those errands took me to Trader Joe’s in Tempe where I suddenly had my relaxed day turned into one of near rage. Just outside of the TJ’s entrance sits a pair of vending boxes for the two local papers. Now, I am not a fan of the journalism of either of our local Phoenix dailies. Today, though, one of them clearly decided to represent one narrow view and position. The East Valley Tribune’s editorial board has fallen clearly on the side of racism and classism with their headline announcing the confirmation of the identity of the Chandler Rapist.

Ahmadinejad at Columbia

Ahmadinejad at ColumbiaOn a September day one of the most controversial men in the world walked off a plane, into a car, and onto the stage of Columbia University.Much different from the publicized, polarized, puppetized dialogue being thrown around the major media networks, President Ahmadinejad’s speech was a critical moment for the Columbia University community, regardless of personal opinions: Columbians, friends and colleagues, were, and continue to be, held in Tehran without charges – taken into custody for presenting dangerous ideas.

Armenian Genocide and You…

Before taking on the recent House Foreign Affairs Committee action (House Resolution 106) regarding the tragic Armenian Genocide in the early 20th-Century, I want to pause to express my sympathy for the victims, survivors and their descendants. It is in so doing that I recognize both the volatility of the subject and question why this of all issues is where the House leadership chooses to expend its political energy. I am intrigued by this type of legislation. While I have a certain sympathy for the issue, it really does concern me that there are so many current pressing issues for the House to address, that they choose to take on something that, while important, is clearly mired in past disputes that do more to complicate current political relationships than heal old wounds.
