o you ever get the feeling that you're alone in this world? Do you ever feel like, no matter how hard you try, you just can't have others relate to you? Have you ever had the following experience with anything?...

MAN-MADE NATURAL DISASTERS
What follows is a brief catalogue of some of history's worst manmade natural disasters. Some of these are well-known: some have become lost in the mists of history...

A BRIEF HISTORY OF TROPICÁLIA
In the mid-1960's a group of young musicians from the central Brazilian state of Bahia slowly received notice by the national music scene. Bahia was thought of, by the more developed south, as provincial, both economically and culturally, the people thought of as lazy and backwards......

WELCOME TO THE OCCUPATION
Removing Hussein from power was far easier than many feared. Taking control of Iraq has proved far more difficult than many expected...

SHARIA
An increasing number are turning to the Q'uran for their political theory. There is a long tradition of Sharia - Q'uranic law - stretching back over 1,000 years.

POST-WAR IRAQ
Iraq is a country the size of California - and one whose population is nearly as diverse. Sunnis, Shi'ites, Yezidis, Christians, Kurds, and Arabs can all be found within its borders...

WHY DO THEY HATE US?
As the Twin Towers collapsed on September 11th, so did the belief that the US was invulnerable from the rest of the world. Suddenly, the anger of people half a world away, people we hardly even knew about, crashed themselves into our living rooms...

ANTI-MARIJUANA COMMERCIALS-HARMLESS?
The recent wave of anti-marijuana commercials have been aimed at contesting the current popular notion of marijuana as a relatively harmless substance within the drug lexicon...

AN INTERVIEW WITH ISAAC ADAMSON
Isaac Adamson is the author of "Tokyo Sucker Punch," "Hokkaido Popsicle," and his most recent release, "Dreaming Pachinko." (review here) The books detail the various adventures of Billy Chaka...

THE WORLD'S WORST DICTATORS
Sadaam Hussein may be out of office but there are plenty of despots who are still clinging to power. Some have received lukewarm criticism; others have received American funding and support. These are the worst of the worst: the kind of tyrants who give tyrants a bad name...

AN INTERVIEW WITH TIMOTHY "SPEED" LEVITCH
There's a great battle raging on for the souls of young and aspiring writers-a complicated struggle that can be metaphorized (perhaps not a word, but I like it) as Henry Miller vs. health insurance...



Other Recent Features:

A WAR IN IRAQ IS THE BEST…OR WORST THING TO HAPPEN
Many commentators have joked that Anti-Americanism is replacing soccer as the universal sport. I am convinced that a little anti-Americanism is actually a healthy thing...

A HISTORY OF AMERICAN ANTI-WAR MOVEMENTS
The War on Iraq has already led to widespread protests… and widespread complaints that the protesters are either deluded or traitors...

IRAQ: MYTH AND REALITY
As we move ever closer to what seems an inevitable war with Iraq, we find ourselves bombarded on all sides with facts and factoids. On the left we have knee-jerk "America Bad" sloganeering, with Dubya compared unfavorably to Sadaam and Hitler...

THE COOLEST RECORD STORE IN THE WORLD
A favorite record store is like a favorite ice cream. The ingredients are basically the same: cream, sugar, and favorite flavor; and in the case of a store records, CDs and favorite flavor. It's the flavor that counts...

WILL WE PROTECT THE CONSTITUTION PROTECT US?
It would have been beyond our founding father's wildest dreams that the Constitution could have protected our most basic freedoms 214 years after it was ratified...

THE PERSIAN GULF

In 1949 conflict between the newly-established Israeli Defense Forces and the old-guard Irgun brought the new State of Israel to the brink of civil war. Since that time things haven't improved much.

WHO'S WHO IN PALESTIAN POLITICS
Many people believe that every conflict in the Middle East stems from that shadowy bugbear, "Islamic Fundamentalism," and that every terrorist incident can be laid at the feet of the "radical Moslems." Alas, things are not so simple.

DREAD
Dread is a different experience than fear. Fear is experience. Dread is a burden that we lift into experience that acts as a shield against the threat of life...
BRUCE WAGNER
A conversation with the acclaimed novelist and director.

LAYMEN'S GUIDE TO WWWIII - THE AFTERMATH
