Garrison summarises and explains to the media key points of his official investigation — as New Orleans District Attorney — into the JFK Assassination. Much of what he reveals is not common knowledge even now.
From site: “This is a collection of Mae Brussell’s recordings from 1971 to 1988. The archive begins in June 1971, a month after Mae began her radio career as a frequent guest on KLRB’s show Dialogue: Conspiracy, which expanded into KLRB’s regular segment Dialogue: Assassination and from there into Dialogue: Conspiracy and World Watchers International.
While a few of Mae’s recordings have been lost, this collection [when completed will be] a comprehensive source of her surviving broadcast material. For supplemental interviews and lectures” … Full text below:
Danger in Cell Phone La La Land,Â LA Progressive,Â by Shawn Hamilton,Â
Lately Iâ€™ve encountered a surprising number of people in public who seemed to be talking to themselves. Often when this happens, I assume these folks are talking to me, so I respond in some way as polite custom dictates, only to be ignoredâ€”or to receive a disapproving glance for having invaded someoneâ€™s privacy bubble. Usually by this point I would realize the person was talking on a cell phone or similar electronic device, and I would feel like a fool.
I first apprehended the potentially adverse social consequences of personal electronic devices in, appropriately, 1984. I was attending Humboldt State University, and I noticed a classmate wearing Walkman headphones day after day and commented in class that he seemed to be using them to tune the rest of us out. For me this was the beginning of what I now see as a deleterious trend that is getting so much worse than I initially anticipated.
In the 1990s I boarded a train in Taiwan and got a preview of the cell phone madness that would soon afflict the States. Bizarre sounds began to erupt all over the carâ€”ringing, buzzing, beeping, Beethoven. These noises would happen, and there would be several people engaging in solo conversation, often in loud and sometimes angry voices. Acknowledging cultural relativity, I unsuccessfully resisted the feeling that imposing oneâ€™s personal conversation on others is a bit churlish.

Dear Representative Matsui,
I use kratom for inoperable back pain and have been successfully using it to reduce need for synthetic opiates like hydrocodone. I was hoping to quit Norco completely, but my problem is pain, not addiction. Kratom seemed to be a safe, reasonable alternative–finally! So this imperious pronouncement by DEA represents a real setback.
I thought the authorities wanted people to reduce their use of narcotics. It’s a laudable goal, but this prohibition of kratom would have an effect counter to the one they intend. Certain states that have banned kratom, for example, already have shown an uptick use of heroin and other opioids. Please consider!
This move is short-sighted, unethical, certainly undemocratic, and just plain mean, frankly. I hope this is a trial balloon by DEA, but we need to pop it. Haven’t we learned anything from blanket prohibitions? Kratom has a history thousands of years old. It does NOT get you “high” as usually understood and is not very addictive as far as I can tell. It is in no way of the class of drugs typified by “bath salts.” At least permit study of this wonderful plant.
Please, let’s pursue a rational course and allow room for study and ‘sober’ reflection before creating a new class of instant criminals.
