The Cambridge lecture was enthralling- I- having gone to prison for a Viet war protest- am always looking for the best of arguments- especially since Father Berrigan and Howard Zinn died. I consider Rubenstein- along with David Swanson- author of War Is a Lie- and another newcomer- Paul Chappelle- to be new mentors.

I am always surprised to hear good speakers on the Book Channel- for – like so many media- in their effort to be “fair and balanced” they end up presenting conservative, right wing speakers from say- American Enterprise, or other right wing think tanks- as if their views were worthy of airing- which they aren’t. I would rather the channel pursue degrees of truth and good- rather than giving voice to those who are not progressive. I know they have the money…but….

Also- the country is so tilted to the military industrial complex- that people with logic about attaining peace are rarely presented. C Span should seek them out- but they don’t. I imagine they are fearful about funding.

I want to congratulate R R and look forward to meeting him- my movement memoirs are at my web site- (google david eberhardt poetry and prose).

A real honor to hear from a member of the Baltimore Four, and a poet to boot! Thank you, Dave. I did not go to jail as you did but spent some invaluable time with the Berrigans and my dear friend Eqbal Ahmad, and chaired the Committee to Defend the Harrisburg Eight (if you remember that farcical but vicious prosecution). I hope we get to meet one of these days.
