Wendell Berry on War

Orion Magazine will be publishing what may be "the most important essay ever written" by Wendell Berry in its March/April edition. Orion will make it available for viewing and download on its website at that time. In addition, in February, Orion will be publishing the essay as a full-page weekday advertisement in the New York Times.

The title of the essay will be "A Citizen's Response to the National Security Strategy of the United States of America".

I consider Mr. Berry to be a wise and prudent man. I will read his thoughts with interest. When the essay becomes available, you will hear about it here at Fragments. Perhaps Mr. Berry's concerns will serve as a basis for some helpful reflection and discussion about where our country is headed, if indeed it is not already up to its ammunition belt in the quadmire of its 'just war du jour' by then.

Fred, thanks for the news of this forthcoming publication. As you know, Berry is a hero of mine. I'll look forward to reading his essay.

I am beng put to death by the greed of the Land Developers of southern california. Terrorists are not only in other countries, they abide in Sourthern California, especially Orange county.

I live in the Leasure World in Seal Beach. At night I have been physically assulted as I cannot lock my home in this cooperative housing unit, which was and is HUD housing for seniors. I was told that the maintenance and security must have access to my place. As such, my bone in my head is being disintegrated by "loud noise" and a substance poured into my head while I sleep. If this sounds abnormal, it certainly is.

Orange County appears to be one of the most corrupt places I ever entered. Its called "Land Developers" in general and "who" formulates these interests is up for grabs in my book.

I know one thing. There are not 9500 people living in this "empty facade" which runs 200 clubs and active gardeners plus land developers constantly remodeling. A lot of people have been living off of this HUD housing unit and dead people's flesh for many years. I am not unique in what I say.

Don't know if this will get through.
