May you all have a safe and peaceful holiday season. Can I get a chorus of ‘Blue Christmas’?
Amicus posted it here on BMG before anyone else had it anywhere that I know of — good sources there, pal! Bernard Cohen, currently directing the Federal Transit Administration’s efforts to rebuild transportation facilities in lower Manhattan that were damaged in the Sept. 11 attacks, will be the state’s new Secretary of Transportation.

As many of you know Ben LaGuer’s case is going to oral arguments in the SJC on January 4. For 23 years he has been claiming his innocence of a vicious rape. I have been posting to BMG about the case since last June. The case and the current round of appeals raise many many issues which I plan to get into here on BMG in the next two weeks.

I should attempt to get another myspace page to test their censorship once again. I have many more topics verboten to pass around. The Coming North American Union. Pelosi and 911 truth. Dubai Ports and AIG. Putting a date on the start of the depression that will make 1929 look like a mild recession.
