In September

"Spring scarce had greener fields to show than these
Of mid September; through the still warm noon
The rivulets ripple forth a gladder tune
Than ever in the summer; from the trees
Dusk-green, and murmuring inward melodies,
No leaf drops yet; only our evenings swoon
In pallid skies more suddenly, and the moon
Finds motionless white mists out on the leas."
- Edward Dowden, In September

The Sad fight in NY

Keith Olbermann Special Comment


Religion is not the problem. Genuine religion is subverted by opportunists who use it as a weapon. Hunger can be used as a weapon, greed, nationalism, race, class etc. It is very naive to suggest religion is the problem. It is being made a scapegoat. Let's not forget Karl Marx was all about doing away with religion and the Russians tried it. So did the Chinese and the Cubans. When you take away peoples faith you take away their hope. I do not want to live in a world without hope. All the worlds great religions advocate peace and brotherhood. What you see with zealots and religious extremists has nothing to do with God. All of this fighting is about oil and empire not about religion. The worlds religions are being pitted against each other in the war for wealth and empire.
