Plain in the city

A plain Quaker folk singer with a Juris Doctorate in his back pocket, salt in his blood, and a set of currach oars in the closet, Ulleann Pipes under his arm, guitar on his back, Anglo Irish baggage, wandering through New York City ... in constant amaze. Statement of Faithfulness. As a member of the Quaker Bloggers Ad Hoc Committee I affirm that I will be faithful to the Book of Discipline of my Meeting 15th Street Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends.

A War Without Rules, A War on Sovereignty, A War without End

What are we to do, now as we still can talk about it? This "war" takes on new aspects of lawlessness every day. The killing of innocents inside a nation with which we are at peace, as is the case on the air raid on Pakistan, is a crime which takes its place in the list of those days that will live in infamy.

Today, Mr. Bush has informed us that we have the right to criticize the "war" as long as we do it along his guide lines.

Well, I reserve to myself the right to call sneak attacks on sovereign nations with whom we we at peace what as I see them, as a day which will live in infamy.
