Henry Kissinger with the Chilean
fascist general he helped bring to power
Forgive this being late: It took a
day or so for the bile to stop rising at the spectacle
of Kerry "consulting" about Syria with Kissinger on,
spookily, the 40th anniversary of the coup in Chile that
toppled President Allende and sparked the brutal reign
of Pinochet - the coup Kissinger orchestrated because
global capitalism simply could not be threatened with
democratic socialism, nor can it still.
What tops the list of Kissinger's crimes? The six
million, largely civilian victims of his massive bombing
of Vietnam? Cambodia? Laos? Chile? The fact that the man
responsible for the spilling of so much innocent blood
has yet to be held accountable, for any of it? This
week, any week as long as Kissinger's free and above
ground: Never forget.

A Tax System Stacked Against the 99 Percent
By JOSEPH E. STIGLITZ
Republican who had a plan for an ailing Detroit
Hazen S. Pingree was elected mayor of Detroit in 1889 on a
platform of exposing and ending corruption in city paving
contracts, sewer contracts, and the school board. During the
Depression of 1893, Pingree expanded the public welfare
programs, initiated public works for the unemployed, built
new schools, parks, and public baths. He gained national
recognition through his "potato patch plan," a systematic
use of vacant city land for gardens which would produce food
for the city's poor.
During his term as Michigan governor he supported an
eight-hour workday; a regulated income tax; and railroad
