Michael Winship: Every Day a Little Death

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Michael Winship

Hard to break old habits. As is true for so many, I measure the year as if I'm still a student condemned to the classroom. It doesn't commence January 1, but in September, when summer's over and school starts.

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION

In the world of mainstream media, there is always something "breaking." Who wants to hear about old news when there are so many new disasters to keep up with?

Paul Rogat Loeb: The Fugitive Girl Act

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Paul Rogat Loeb

Do you remember the Fugitive Slave Act? It criminalized not only slaves who'd escaped to non-slave states, but also anyone who helped them flee.

Cindy Sheehan: Celebrating Irrelevancy!

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Cindy Sheehan

Laying here in my motel room recovering from my 4th trip to the e.r. in a little over two weeks, and two surgeries, I found out from the Waco Tribune, (Sunday, August 27) that I have become "irrelevant" to the anti-war movement.

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS

[BuzzFlash note: We decided to update this article, originally posted last Monday, after a reader noted two glaring omissions to our list, Gov. Matt Blunt and Rep. Roy Blunt of Missouri. Since we obviously can't include every Republican scoundrel, please feel free to add your own comments below if you can think of anyone else who ought to be mentioned.]

Mailbag on Short Hiatus

The BuzzFlash Mailbag will be on a short hiatus due to an illness in the Mailbag editor's family.

A BUZZFLASH EDITORIAL

BuzzFlash has written many an editorial and news analysis that comes to the same conclusion: Bush gives the terrorists what they want by playing to their hand. In return, Rove gets to use terrorism as a tactic of fear to keep American voters in the Republican camp.
