Redirection: Where it all comes together...
The new issue of Just Above Sunset, the weekly magazine-format parent site to this daily web log, is now on line.
This issue - Volume 4, Number 4 for the week of Sunday, January 22, 2006 - covers many topics.
In current events, you'll find items on the two birthdays, Martin Luther King's and Ben Franklin's (the three-hundredth), that consider their legacies, and what they might make of what we have now. Of course the big news of the last week was that we finally heard from Osama Bin Laden again, and that caused all sorts of turmoil, reviewed here with commentary. The remaining current events items cover what seems to be a constitutional showdown - just who gets to ignore the law and why - and the conflict between, on one hand, privacy and freedom, and on the other, security and comfort. Ah, it's just the usual big issues, with some exclusive observations from our friend in Europe.
"Our Man in Paris," Ric Erickson is back, but this time not with any slice of life in Paris, but with a real challenge to Americans.
Bob Patterson is back, as the World's Laziest Journalist reporting on car enthusiasts out here, and, as our Book Wrangler, telling us what's up in El Paso - he just returned.
There are four pages of Southern California photography - the world famous LA landmark (the big donut), for nature buff some intense bird studies, for fans of irony some very strange sign at the beach, and, as many request, a botanical study.
The quotes this week - given current events - are about the nature of the law.
