Does Peace Have a Chance?

Tonight (Monday) at 8:00 pm there's a free screening of this movie, "Iraq For Sale". It's from director Robert Greenwald, who brought you Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price, Outfoxed, and Uncovered. I have seen Outfoxed, which I HIGHLY recommend, and the Wal-Mart movie has been on my must-see list. Austin screening details for tonight's showing are here. It's at Cafe Mundi (and we will probably have to wait for another one if it rains, the screening will be outside and the inside of that place is small). Check the movie's website to find a screening near you.

Today is also the birthday of John Lennon, who was born in 1940. There is a film making the rounds now, The U.S. vs John Lennon. I have not seen it, and a couple of the reviews suggest that it is more recommended for the younger crowd, who will possibly learn a lot about John and some of the things he went through... whereas us older folks already know all about that stuff. Anyway, here it is, 2006, and there's still war to protest, still trying to Imagine what it would be like if humans could just get along.

I visited a site today and the siteowner had seen the movie you are going to see. She said it was very very interesting and full of amazing facts.

Yes, John Lennon's birthday. His poetry still rings true today.

Also Jackson Browne's Birthday,

Check out the words form the songs on "Lives in the Balance", "For America". Funny how these words are just as meanignful today as when they were written.

Oh yes, Jackson Browne, he's a great songwriter, one of the best.

As soon as it comes to the state shaped like a mitten, the undeniable liberal has a date with his 19yr old daughter, who is turning out to be quite the liberal.

All my ex's live in Texas. LOL

Yeah, how can we bring peace and give it a chance with all these nut cases out there? Hugs.
