Dear Tom & List, Good to have your communications. Admittedly, just now, I haven't much to add to what already's been said. But we never step into the the same river twice (another metaphor!), so new material emerges, over & over again. You mention "watchdogs of humanity", sometimes called "whistle-blowers" etc. Isn't that, amongst other reasons, what this List is attempting to live up to? But no-one, at all, is beyond criticism, least of all those who consider themselves in control of "the moral high ground". To see what is wrong, out there, is crucial, yet this has to be accompanied by - for want of a better word - introspection (sorry, if I'm drifting into the spheres of philosophy!). I suppose we all, in our various ways & approaches, contribute to an understanding of the turbulence of Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine etc., what are the root causes, and what are the remedies - to be found in "civilised" society. We all look forward to your writings on the hair (spelt hare?) of buffed Senators! Are you in Montreal, now, Tom? Wherever you are, let's hope you have ready access to one of those e-mail machines (maybe with a delete key?)! Greetings, Bert. _________________________________________________________________ Find a cheaper internet access deal - choose one to suit you. http://www.msn.co.uk/internetaccess _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
