Quote Quiz - Who spoke this truth ....
George Bush or Fidel Castro?
"There is not even a clear and coherent idea about
what energy will power the billions of motorized vehicles,
which inundate the cities and highways of rich countries
and even of many Third World countries. This is the
ultimate expression of a completely irrational way
of life and consumption that will never be useful as
a model for the 10 billion people who will supposedly
inhabit the Earth when the fateful petroleum era is over."
Will George W. Bush ever call to America for
us to rise to more than more debt, oil usage and wars?
He goes to lunch, he picks up a few million.
He goes to dinner, he picks up a few million.
Corporate warmongers are paying this man's wages.
There is no call to greatness from this man.
He does not call upon Americans to be great.

Five Minutes of Silence
By : Jacques Frija
Le Monde, France
Five minutes of silence in France at noon Monday September 15.
Everyone will stop work. Cars will stop.
Their passengers will get out.
France will gather its thoughts.
If other countries want to join us, they will show
their solidarity as we did for the somewhat less
than 3000 dead of the World Trade Center.
Five minutes for the thousands of deaths in France.
Five minutes for the dead in other countries attacked
by the heat wave.
Five minutes for the old, the physically handicapped,
the weakened sick people who died, or who survived,
further weakened by the heat so that no one knows
whether they will be able to survive this shock.
Five minutes for all those who took care of them and
also suffered the heat.
While there were no child deaths due to dehydration
because mothers and fathers received a health
education to avoid such a slaughter, five minutes
to understand why our parents, who gave us life,
died in solitude, the family absent or distant during
the vacation, in the indifference and anonymity of
the city, with its paradox of distance in the very
nearness of neighbors, the weakening of our
physical contacts in a universe of omni-directional
Five minutes in the schools to open an instructive
discussion about solidarity.
Five minutes to reflect on the patching up of our
unraveled social fabric.
Five minutes so that torn up families don't forget
Five minutes to prevent this drama ever repeating itself.
The health risk of a heat wave, now having been identified
by everyone, we must, as though for children effect a
preventative, solidary health education.
Five minutes to think that France may be exposed to
other totally unexpected climactic risks like the storm
of 1999 and this year's heat wave and to anticipate
new emergency plans.
Five minutes to start thinking about the improvement
of the responsiveness of our alert systems, with no
mixing up of risks: ozone pollution in place of the heat wave.
How many deaths were due to ozone and to heat?
Five minutes to consider that our population is aging
and that apart from the handicapped and the ill, our
social solidarity is a political emergency that demands
an action plan to counter this collapse of humanity.
The demography of the aged, the handicapped, the ill
is known and it's a national duty, beyond any political
divisions, to open our eyes to the present situation
and plan for the future before it overtakes us as it just
Five minutes to remember that we will all age together
and that it's a duty to prepare for the old age of our population.
Five minutes to say to ourselves, "Never again!"
