For Memorial Day, let's remember the soldiers and civilians killed in the most infernal human institution, war. But at the same time, lets CONDEMN war, the ignoble causes for which (post-'45) the US's wars are fought, a foreign policy consisting mainly of violence, insane expenditures for war hardware, etc. Program features Fisk's reflections on war, Zinn's great 1976 essay on Memorial Day, & commentary by me.
Fisk excerpt from tucradio.org. Thanks to Maria Gilardin and TUC Radio. For Zinn's "Whom Will We Honor Memorial Day?" & other good stuff, see *The Zinn Reader* (Seven Stories Press, 1997). "New World Notes" is produced for WWUH-FM, "Public Alternative Radio," at the University of Hartford. Feedback to kdowst at hotmail dot com.
Zinn's essay got him fired as a columnist for the Boston Globe. To invert T.S. Eliot, at least he went out with a bang, not a whimper! The piece begins and ends with a few words about drunken smashups. At the end, though, he's talking about more than just highway accidents.

Photographs and commentary complement the story. See them in the newsletter or on the blog--http://newworldnotes.blogspot.com . Permanent link to this week's entry? http://newworldnotes.blogspot.com/2009/05/memorial-day-special.html . Weekly email newsletter free on request.
