I am not feeling funny today. I am outraged and sickened by the fact that as “peace talks” proceed in Jerusalem, Palestinians continue to live under siege in Gaza—subsidized and approved by our own government.
To the left I have embedded the video trailer for the new book released by my own publisher, Haymarket, which once again lives up to its tagline: “books for changing the world.” The book is called Midnight on the Mavi Marmara. Click on “Watch videos at Vodpod.”
Buy it. Read it. Act.

I’ll be speaking tonight at Barnard/Columbia at 7:30PM, BUT the meeting space has been moved to: Diana Center 203 on the Barnard campus. Matt Swagler describes the building as “the new, kind of grossly orange/brown and glass building” right on Broadway at what would be 117th st. Enter at the main Barnard gates. take the 1 train to 116th St. And yup, it’s still free.
