(June 15, 2006) A 1998 graduate of Mamaroneck High School, Marianne Perez, is now a part of a national effort to create a U.S. Department of Peace. According to The Peace Alliance, a grass-roots organization that is lobbying for this development, the U.S. Department of Peace would promote non-military conflict resolutions as well as domestic violence prevention.

NEWSWEEK'S APOLOGY TOO LITTLE, 20 YEARS TOO LATE
Caryl Rivers, Women's eNews
Newsweek has finally apologized for its infamous cover story that predicted single women over 40 would probably never marry. But the damage has long since been done.

DELAY'S MISSION CONTINUES
Robert Scheer, AlterNet
Tom DeLay was not at a loss for pious words -- none of them contrite --during his farewell speech to applauding GOP-ers.
http://www.alternet.org/columnists/story/37567/
[DUCHESS NOTE - DeLay is such a spoiled, greedy brat and an incredibly sore loser. His excesses and soul deep corruption finally caught up with him. This man is his own worst enemy and enough folk got fed up with his crap to slam it to him. Bravo to those that slammed it to the butt ugly hammer. But the fight isn't over yet and this bugger will continue to do his evil work elsewhere. Just remember, if you want to get rid of some nasty weeds, you have to dig it up by the roots to destroy it.]

RESISTANCE CINEMA presents " THE BIG BUY , TOM DELAY'S STOLEN CONGRESS"
Film by Mark Birnbaum and Jim Schermbeck, Brave New Films, 2006, 75 minutes
WHEN: Sunday June 25th, 1:15 pm
WHERE: Community Church of NYC, 40 E. 35th Street
ADMISSION: Free; donations appreciated

In a stunning 1994 interview, shortly after the now infamous Republican revolution, Tom Delay sat down and laid out his vision for America; to destroy the Department of Education, HUD, OSHA, the NEH, the NEA, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy. His self-stated goal was to "completely redesign government". THE BIG BUY is the story of how he did just that. It's the story of one of the most blatant power grabs in American history, and how a District Attorney in Texas turned out to be the biggest threat to the national Delay machine. The film is a warning about how easy it is for American democracy to be highjacked by a combination of relentless ambition and corporate millions. It makes the case that Delay built a "custom-made Congress" that is still providing votes for his agenda. THE BIG BUY connects the dots between big money and big government. It's not a pretty picture. June 8th was Tom Delay's last day in Congress. Has a remarkable career come to an end or just entered a new phase?
