[ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ] So, I woke up this morning, jumped at the remote to find out if Bush the Lesser had plunged us into war, and dialed up CNN "Headline News." Lo and behold there was a piece on Voices in the Wilderness! They showed video footage of VITWers with signs out front of the UN in Baghdad I think, (still confused at seeing VW on TV) They even interviewed them and let them speak briefly about sanctions and their effects on the people of Iraq. I was amazed and a big smile stretched across my face. If I had their email address I would write them and say thanks for the coverage. Then, sadly, I flipped over to CNN light, Paula Z's channel and was introduced to Con Coughlin (sp?). Those of you in England probabaly know this guy. He wrote a book on SH. Anyway, he informed the US public that Sadaam H had sleeper cells, a term which has been heavily associated with Osama BL, all over Europe and the US. SH was just waiting to activate his sleeper cells and kill US citizens so we better rush off to war. I have been slogging about rather embarassed at some of our talking heads here in the US, now that I have met Con I see what you across the sea have to be embarassed about as well. (Felicity you must be proud at your fellow journalist) Nevertheless, I was glad to see the first mention of VITW ever in the corporate media here in the blanket of democracy. (They keep stuffing the blanket in my eyes, ears, mouth, and nose, I keep pulling it out.)
