Work 4 Peace,Hold All Life Sacred,Eliminate Violence! I am on my mobile version of the door-to-door, going town-to-town holding readings/gatherings/discussions of my book "But What Can I Do?" This is my often neglected blog mostly about my travels since 9/11 as I engage in dialogue and actions. It is steaming with my opinions, insights, analyses toward that end of holding all life sacred, dismantling the empire and eliminating violence while creating the society we want ALL to thrive in

He's a monster

An older white strate couple swiftly approach my truck from the anti-Monsanto side, & I'm instantly on high alert. After all this is the deep south, southern georgia, less than 100 miles from Florida.

As they get closer, I see he has a kindly but serious face beneath a shock of abundant short new snow white hair, gaunt willow body clad in a plaid flannel shirt & dungarees. His wife pauses in front of him, short permed hair puffing out 2 frame a round face with dark brown square glasses that slip a little when she smiles broadly & extends her hand.

"He's a monster" the husband says emphatically, his thin frame towering at least a foot over her as he places both hand on her shoulders & they both stare at me with twin tragic expressions. I agree.

"We LOVE your truck" he continues as she also starts 2 speak. "We agree with everything you've written."

His wife finally concurs with "He's a criminal & Congress is complicit if they don't get rid of him!"

I ask them if they heard the wh told the CDC 2 "prepare the public for nuclear war. Their faces reflect the piercing disbelief that i know is in my eyes. "How the hell do they intend 2 do that" she croaks as her husband mutters again "He's a monster!"

I say "There's only 1 fuckin way 2 'prepare' 4 fuckin nuclear war, & that is 2 PREVENT it."

Nods & hugs all around as we swear 2 do our part.

I think I'll repaint the back of my truck - as much as I love what's already there. Maybe I ca keep some of it.
