The Anarchist is Cooked

Posted on April 14, 2017 at 1:30pm 23 Comments

     William Powell ... the name ring a bell? No? Well, maybe you have to be a certain age.

     Oh wait -- I see a couple of you furtively heading for the exits. I know who you are, so don't bother.

     Powell was the author -- at age 19 no less -- of the (in)famous Anarchist Cookbook, a sort of three-part treatise on black ops, bomb-making and agitprop.

     Banned in some countries, the Cookbook is readily available online (I'd suggest using a proxy browser if you want to…

     Call me mechanically declined.

     I don't mind -- I'm used to it. Although it's not true I can't screw in a lightbulb all by myself. I can, and there's about a 75-25 chance I won't break anything in the process.

     But it wasn't entirely my fault that replacing the garage door opener remote was so damned difficult.

     Earlier in the week, I noticed that the remote would only work if I was basically sitting within two feet of the door. Had to be the battery, I figured,…

The North Star: A New Chapter in the Flight to Freedom

Posted on February 21, 2017 at 4:00pm 16 Comments

“Canada is not merely a neighbour of Negroes.

Deep in our history of struggle for freedom, Canada was the North Star.


                                                                                                                 -- Martin Luther King Jr., 1967

     Most everyone has heard of the Underground Railroad that brought so many fugitive slaves to Canada, all of them following the hope that was "The North Star".

I wasn't sure how to tell you about my response to your Open Call.   So I left it here.

Hi Boa! I am happy to see you here and on my friends list. It looks like OS has an alternative.
