Article on Third-World Muckraker engaging, impressive
I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the piece on the Indian journalist, Palagummi Sainath (ďModern-Day MuckrakerĒ).
The piece showed a depth of curiosity that was engaging and impressive.
We donít get much in our media that shows even a fraction of the interest this piece showed, in what is happening beyond American borders (unless itís coverage of whatever war we are currently in).
never heard of this guy, who turns out to be a global best-seller, so Iím
grateful to Pulse for clueing me in.
Please keep it up. Itís refreshing and much needed.
P.S. I blogged a short piece about Sainath on my Local Man blog.
Thanks for rap review, but a few corrections
you for the review, Kandice ["Stars
of the North," Feb. 23] -- but a few corrections: "The Streets"
is actually the second mix-tape. "The Outskirts" was the first --
and the members of Trak Citi are Matt D. DJ Reeg, Zay, Envy, Jazio Blaq, Will
Fowla, Smatrtz aka Kam, and Mari -- we also just added Cris Clay to the mix.
The rest of the artists are affiliated but not actual members of the Allstars,
but are featured on the tracks.
Thanks again, though.

Thanks, Hightower, for talking about biodiesel fuels
Thank you, thank you, thank you, Jim Hightower, for talking
about vegetable diesel, and thanks to Pulse for running Hightowerís
column; one of the reasons I pick up Pulse every week.
When I first heard that you could actually run a car on fry grease, I thought
it was nothing more than an urban legend, until I looked into it and found it
was true. Itís no wonder the big corporations donít want this publicized.
Can you imagine how different the world would be if we all just filled up at
Dunkiní Donuts? No more of us would be condemned to die in the Middle
I understand, of course, that even veggie diesel still pollutes. But to build
a cleaner world, we canít all just suddenly turn Mennonite Ė we
need steps like this to keep our society going while we adjust to a different
way of life. Anyway, thanks, Pulse, for making my week yet again.
