Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I am a lifelong problem. I have been photographed by the spooks so often I can't count them, I know how to deal with tear gas and mace, I have been run out of town in two cities, Columbus, Ohio and Columbia, S. C.  and I'm proud to say I aint done yet, legs or no.

I have crossed the US customs service interface  literally dozens of timers. Yet suddenly, customs runs my passport, and five minutes  later I am in the little room with someone who refuses to identify himself, and billows clouds of incredibly obvious smoke---attempts to intimidate me-- and you ask what is the lesson.
The only thing that changed was that I had recently posted several essays and e-mails on line about the preexisting conditions that might be necessary for violent revolution, the fact that Al Jazeera actually seemed to do a better job of reporting than Fox, (and a number of allied topics).

They were generous. They warned me.

Capitalism searches out the darkest corners of human potential, and mainlines them.
