      "I looked at Communism as a Southerner looks at a Negro, it's evil, it's bad."
      o William Calley on My Lai as quoted by Dog-Faced Hermans

      "Screw this! They're lying! The President's lying! The rich fat cats
      that are drowning you will do it again and
      again and again. They lead you into imperialist wars for profit, they
      take away your schools and your hope
      and when you complain, they blame Blacks and Jews and immigrants.
      Then they push your kids under.
      I say, Kick'm in the ass and take your rightful share!"
      o Huey "Kingfish" Long in 1927,
      before being elected Governor of Louisiana in 1928

      [1] "N Collective: News from Holland, volume 1" onX-Or
      <www.xs4all.nl/~xorluc>. The mental plane is surveyed, the brain pan
      is emptied, the lobotomy is not wholly successful. Serrated edge
      sounds that skirt and rip around the definitions of music.
      Sonographic topographs across a parking lot of an abandoned shopping

      [2] "Music For His Films / Johan van der Keuken" on BVHaast
      <www.bvhaast.nl>. Incredibly beautiful and informative digipackage by
      this very active jazz musician, archivist, label owner and
      impresario. Music for JvdK's films. An incredibly inventive/poetic
      Dutch documentary filmmaker who still must get his due worldwide. But
      now he is dead. He had a broad range of subjects he was interested
      in: a creative blind child, Muybridge, the Shallows nature sanctuary
      between Holland and Germany and Denmark, Coronation Day 1980,
      squatters, young factory workers in Peru, PLO, painter-poet Lucebert,
      money, German occupation of Amsterdam.

      [3] "The Universe of Absence" on BVHaast <www.bvhaast.nl>. Dynamic,
      propulsive and yet ambient masterpieces of timeless fusions of old
      sentiments [and instruments] with modern sensibilities and
      technologies. In my Top 30+ for 2004. When you listen it is as if
      your ears are able to span 3 centuries of music and your mind makes
      sense of it - and approves.

      [4] "Happy Lehar: Potpourri" on Polydor. Big in NL, this German sonic
      symphonic heart & kidney specialist has always understood the
      connection between easy melodies, money, and basic emotion. The old
      adage reigns: too much candy makes you sick. Eno's main man?

      [5] "Those Deep Buds" on Konkurrent. Good 1994 introduction to this
      band of enchanting anarcho rage with a real feel for elegant engagé
      lyricism and pointed/barbed lyrics. And to think, one if its members
      is in the inner circle of ptpŠ With quotes from Angela Carter and
      William CalleyŠ

      [6] "Percussionist Songs" on BVHaast <www.bvhaast.nl>. AM is an
      interesting sonic explorer which commences with a performance [see
      Jaap Blonk's recent CD with TWO versions] of Schwitter's Dada sound
      poem "Ursonate". Tis one was recorded live. No easy task I am
      guessing. CD2 is a weird and varied set of spoken word, percussion,
      musical saw, and electronics. Some Cage and some experimental voice
      pieces make this one of the more intrepid contemporary explorations
      of the head-on crash of human and machine.

      [7] "De Grootste Successen van André van Duin" on Parade vinyl.
      Extremely well-regarded Dutch comedian who is sometimes very funny.
      Here does a very good send-up of a Roger Miller yodel tune that
      became a hit for Del Shannon.

      [8] "Sit Down, ListenŠ" on BV Haast <www.bvhaast.nl>
      <www.greetjebijma.nl>. Brilliant and dynamic avant vocalization from
      this Dutch ululator. Interesting combination of scat-abstract with
      poetry [Yeats], jazz [Abby Lincoln] and other recuperated material.
      Highly recommended.

      [9] "Ekseption 3" on Philips. Maybe the most pretentious album EVER.
      They had a minor hit with "The Fifth" a version of Beethoven's.
      Inspired by the British prog rockers, the Nice.

      [10] "DJ Cor Blimey & His Pigeon" on Conundrum. Cor Fuhler is a
      composer but here spills bad beer on the turntables to make mayhem of
      a most hilarious sampling sort. This piece samples Elaine May & Mike
      Nichols [a great old comedy team] extensively. This is a clever blend
      of avant abstract, culture jamming, good old fashioned bad record
      sampling and some Dmitri from Paris Lounge gestures. Definitely in my
      Tops for 2003.

      [11] "Turn" on Ex Records <ex@...>. If you have missed the Ex
      for the past 25 years then here is your chance to redeem yourself
      somewhat. Arguably the best punk band in the world today because they
      have never betrayed their anarcho and squatter roots and because they
      refused to be typecast as merely punk by evolving into a much better
      punk-jazz ensemble than say the Minutemen and are able to fuse global
      music and work with jazz geniuses like percussionist extraordinaire
      Han Bennink without losing their characteristic soundŠ

      [12] "Accordeon Akrobaten" on Telestar vinyl. Speed accordion in the
      style of pre punk gabber drum & bass. These guys can squeeze and run
      and leap over tall beers.

      [13] "Nouvelle Vague" on Peacefrog <www.peacefrog.com>. Probably
      among my top 3 for this year is this great disc of purely genius
      po-mo strategy/conceit. Bossa Nova versions of great 80s punk and
      post-new wave hits present a tongue-in-cheek critique of
      nuggest/evergreens that like all other pop music has a way of
      ossifying in faux mythos if not shaken to its roots. Thus critical
      deconstruction, lovingly and smoothly served up to pay tribute

      [14] "Paloma Blanca" on Negram vinyl. I only know this song because
      it is my daughter's name. Any time I mention her name inevitably this
      song comes up, with many Dutch people even singing a few bars. It is
      certainly catchy crap. A huge European hit.

      o The Dutch coalition government which glad-hands anything to do with
      the notion of the heroic genius connected to all privatizers of all
      public service. Their religion has become the basest of notions
      regarding the holiness of competition and the bogeyman of paranoia
      and fear. Only stopped or slowed periodically by the fact that they
      are hugely unpopular and bungling idiots on top of that. Plus,
      combine that with an obeisant view of America and you have the
      formula for a very annoying government. When will someone in
      government among the socialists or green-left party or somewhere call
      for a no-confidence vote that might topple this adminstration before
      they do more damage to a social system that was once the pride of

      o Events in New Orleans and Mississippi and Alabama should shut up
      some of the weird American-lionizers in the Dutch foreign press corp.
      Several recently were called upon to give their perspectives on
      American life compared to life here. One of their biggest blind spots
      usually has to do with the mythic nature of Americans. First of all,
      they generalize as if Texans are like Vermonters. But worse is this:
      they take clichéd [positive] traits as given truths such as American
      generosity, a can-do upbeat spirit, and a love of freedom and
      non-bureaucracy and how else to put it: a way of making negative
      developments seem like hip trendsŠ Anyway, these journalists as well
      as several novelists including Leon de Winter and Arno Grunberg use
      their romanticized versions of America to beat real NL over the head.
      There is plenty of wisdom to get from the US [but it is not usually
      where they seem to be looking = at official / broad-based culture /
      in your face cliched TV & political culture].But anyway, back to the
      issue at hand: the absurdity of the third world-style approach to the
      katrina hurricane.

      Not only does it force these Dutch journalists to have to rethink
      some of their bumbling bromides but it is forcing Americans to take a
      hard look at the simplistic notion that paying taxes is ALWAYS bad.
      Low taxes is better than high [sure] but no taxes is not better than
      appropriate levels in the sense of collective coordinated responses
      to events of this proportion. It is also forcing a lot of people to
      rethink their blindspot support for a man they thought was a real man
      [whatever that is] and discovering that he is whoosier than the
      limpest-wristed hairdresser in the West Village and probably lacking
      this self-awareness, 100,000 times as dangerous as he sets out to
      prove the opposite and bring all those of questionable
      spiritual/gender orientation with him as they prefer to work out
      their repressed [post-Wilhelm Reich] anxieties in the [inter]national

      It also points out the nary noticed ineffectiveness of privatization,
      the chosen simplistic panacea to fix all things costly and
      bureaucraticŠ One look at the disaster of privatized train service in
      England should make everyone rethink massive wholesale privatization
      of everything. And as Michael Parenti has point out on Z-Net,
      privatization is a large part of the blame here in the Deep South.
      Privatization is basically socio-economic Darwinism and those hurt
      most by it are the hidden poor [hidden only by those who refuse to
      see, like tourists who only see the glories of America = Midtown
      Manhattan and never bother to open their eyes in the BronxŠ where the
      zoo animals eat and sleep better than many of its residents.

      Anyway, the fact that the heat is on Bush is a infinitesimally small
      positive outcome from all of this tragedy although even tho he
      mishandled EVERY aspect of the tragedy, Bush's approval ratings stand
      at 48%, just below the half. The difference is evident as soon as you
      watch Dutch-Belgian or BBC coverage of the post-hurricane situ, CNN
      is unable or unwilling to go beyond / behind the scenes and REALLY
      unearth the anger and despair in the OTHER America washed wide open
      by the hurricane and flooding. The BBC even rescued some kids off a
      porch with their BBC outboard moterboat. It was an incredible sight:
      6 days of living with their dead mother without ever seeing a rescue
      vehicle until the BBC came by and took the distraught kids on board.
      And to hear that Bush's first press conference where he only briefly
      mentioned the poor before going on about oil and gasoline supplies
      and then shortly thereafter going for a round of golf. While Rome


      o part of Michael Moore's letter to Bush: "I especially like how, the
      day after the hurricane, instead of flying to Louisiana, you flew to
      San Diego to party with your business peeps. Don't let people
      criticize you for this -- after all, the hurricane was over and what
      the heck could you do, put your finger in the dike? And don't listen
      to those who, in the coming days, will reveal how you specifically
      reduced the Army Corps of Engineers' budget for New Orleans this
      summer for the third year in a row. You just tell them that even if
      you hadn't cut the money to fix those levees, there weren't going to
      be any Army engineers to fix them anyway because you had a much more
      important construction job for them -- BUILDING DEMOCRACY IN IRAQ!

      On Day 3, when you finally left your vacation home, I have to say I
      moved by how you had your Air Force One pilot descend from the clouds
      as you flew over New Orleans so you could catch a quick look of the
      disaster. Hey, I know you couldn't stop and grab a bullhorn and stand
      on some rubble and act like a commander in chief. Been there done

      There will be those who will try to politicize this tragedy and try
      to use it against you. Just have your people keep pointing that out.
      Respond to nothing. Even those pesky scientists who predicted this
      would happen because the water in the Gulf of Mexico is getting
      hotter and hotter making a storm like this inevitable. Ignore them
      and all their global warming Chicken Littles. There is nothing
      unusual about a hurricane that was so wide it would be like having
      one F-4 tornado that stretched from New York to Cleveland. No, Mr.
      Bush, you just stay the course. It's not your fault that 30 percent
      of New Orleans lives in poverty or that tens of thousands had no
      transportation to get out of town. C'mon, they're black! I mean, it's
      not like this happened to Kennebunkport. Can you imagine leaving
      white people on their roofs for five days? Don't make me laugh! Race
      has nothing -- NOTHING -- to do with this! You hang in there, Mr.
      Bush. Just try to find a few of our Army helicopters and send them
      there. Pretend the people of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast are near


      * How the Free Market Killed New Orleans o Michael Parenti (ZNet

      The free market played a crucial role in the destruction of New
      Orleans and the death of thousands of its residents. Armed with
      advanced warning that a momentous (force 5) hurricane was going to
      hit that city and surrounding areas, what did officials do? They
      played the free market. They announced that everyone should
      evacuate. Everyone was expected to devise their own way out of the
      disaster area by private means, just as the free market dictates,
      just like people do when disaster hits free-market Third World

      It is a beautiful thing this free market in which every individual
      pursues his or her own personal interests and thereby effects an
      optimal outcome for the entire society. This is the way the invisible
      hand works its wonders. There would be none of the collectivistic
      regimented evacuation as occurred in Cuba. When an especially
      powerful hurricane hit that island last year, the Castro government,
      abetted by neighborhood citizen committees and local Communist party
      cadres, evacuated 1.3 million people, more than 10 percent of the
      country's population, with not a single life lost, a heartening feat
      that went largely unmentioned in the U.S. press.

      On Day One of the disaster caused by Hurricane Katrina, it was
      already clear that hundreds, perhaps thousands, of American lives had
      been lost in New Orleans. Many people had "refused" to evacuate,
      media reporters explained, because they were just plain "stubborn."
      It was not until Day Three that the relatively affluent telecasters
      began to realize that tens of thousands of people had failed to flee
      because they had nowhere to go and no means of getting there. With
      hardly any cash at hand or no motor vehicle to call their own, they
      had to sit tight and hope for the best. In the end, the free market
      did not work so well for them.

      Many of these people were low-income African Americans, along with
      fewer numbers of poor whites. It should be remembered that most of
      them had jobs before Katrina's lethal visit. That's what most poor
      people do in this country: they work, usually quite hard at dismally
      paying jobs, sometimes more than one job at a time. They are poor not
      because they're lazy but because they have a hard time surviving on
      poverty wages while burdened by high prices, high rents, and
      regressive taxes. The free market played a role in other ways.
      Bush's agenda is to cut government services to the bone and make
      people rely on the private sector for the things they might need. So
      he sliced $71.2 million from the budget of the New Orleans Corps of
      Engineers, a 44 percent reduction. Plans to fortify New Orleans
      levees and upgrade the system of pumping out water had to be shelved.
      Bush took to the airways and said that no one could have foreseen
      this disaster. Just another lie tumbling from his lips. All sorts of
      people had been predicting disaster for New Orleans, pointing to the
      need to strengthen the levees and the pumps, and fortify the

      In their campaign to starve out the public sector, the Bushite
      reactionaries also allowed developers to drain vast areas of
      wetlands. Again, that old invisible hand of the free market would
      take care of things. The developers, pursuing their own private
      profit, would devise outcomes that would benefit us all. But
      wetlands served as a natural absorbent and barrier between New
      Orleans and the storms riding in from across the sea. And for some
      years now, the wetlands have been disappearing at a frightening pace
      on the Gulf' coast. All this was of no concern to the reactionaries
      in the White House.

      As for the rescue operation, the free-marketeers like to say that
      relief to the more unfortunate among us should be left to private
      charity. It was a favorite preachment of President Ronald Reagan that
      "private charity can do the job." And for the first few days that
      indeed seemed to be the policy with the disaster caused by Hurricane
      Katrina. The federal government was nowhere in sight but the Red
      Cross went into action. Its message: "Don't send food or blankets;
      send money." Meanwhile Pat Robertson and the Christian Broadcasting
      Network---taking a moment off from God's work of pushing John Roberts
      nomination to the Supreme Court---called for donations and announced
      "Operation Blessing" which consisted of a highly-publicized but
      totally inadequate shipment of canned goods and bibles. By Day Three
      even the myopic media began to realize the immense failure of the
      rescue operation. People were dying because relief had not arrived.
      The authorities seemed more concerned with the looting than with
      rescuing people. It was property before people, just like the free
      marketeers always want.

      But questions arose that the free market did not seem capable of
      answering: Who was in charge of the rescue operation? Why so few
      helicopters and just a scattering of Coast Guard rescuers? Why did it
      take helicopters five hours to get six people out of one hospital?
      When would the rescue operation gather some steam? Where were the
      feds? The state troopers? The National Guard? Where were the buses
      and trucks? the shelters and portable toilets? The medical supplies
      and water? Where was Homeland Security? What has Homeland Security
      done with the $33.8 billions allocated to it in fiscal 2005? Even
      ABC-TV evening news (September 1, 2005) quoted local officials as
      saying that "the federal government's response has been a national

      In a moment of delicious (and perhaps mischievous) irony, offers of
      foreign aid were tendered by France, Germany and several other
      nations. Russia offered to send two plane loads of food and other
      materials for the victims. Predictably, all these proposals were
      quickly refused by the White House. America the Beautiful and
      Powerful, America the Supreme Rescuer and World Leader, America the
      Purveyor of Global Prosperity could not accept foreign aid from
      others. That would be a most deflating and insulting role reversal.
      Were the French looking for another punch in the nose? Besides, to
      have accepted foreign aid would have been to admit the truth---that
      the Bushite reactionaries had neither the desire nor the decency to
      provide for ordinary citizens, not even those in the most extreme
      straits. Next thing you know, people would start thinking that George
      W. Bush was really nothing more than a fulltime agent of Corporate
      America. Michael Parenti <www.michaelparenti.org>.
