Abu Ghraib

by Jonathan Wallace

The president speaks repeatedly of ending the rape and torture rooms in Iraq.... and then Abu Ghraib emerges like some horned pre-Columbian god rearing its head from the sea.

Spectacle contributor Annette Swierzbinski is the founder of Others Are Us, an organization dedicated to promoting communication and understanding via artwork among Arab and American children. This month, a show of the children's art may be seen at the Art Institute of New York at 11 Beach Street in Manhattan. For more information, see the organization's web site at http://www.othersareus.org.
Peter Bearse, a frequent contributor to the Spectacle, has published a book on needs and ways for Americans to take back their politics from the political and media class that has taken it over. Entitled WE, THE PEOPLE, the book of 10 chapters and 400 pages includes a comprehensive guide to Internet political sites. It will be released to bookstores in 2 months. For more information or to order advance copies at a discount, drop a line to Peter at democracyanddevelopment@msn.com or see his new website-in-progress, designed to inspire increased political participation, at: www.politicalcommunity.us.
