We want a "peace economy" that creates jobs, invests in our communities, restores and improves public services, saves the environment, and builds the infrastucture. We urge you to sign the petition at www.jobs-not-wars.org that calls for an end to the austerity and militarism that this Congress and Administration seem intent on.
Nicholas Kristof, a product of Harvard and Oxford, has been writing for the New York Times for years. He has won two Pulitzer Prizes. His column today seems right on target. He mentions the crying need for drastic cuts in military spending, but most of the column is debunking three fallacies common in today's budget discussions. It's good.
