Notes from Exile

Iraq, Part Of The Wallpaper?
Archives : Notes from Exile
By David Irby on Jul 16, 2006 - 7:04:00 PM
iraq-flag.jpg
UNITED STATES—Readers may think I'm a broken record, the way I go on about Iraq.  Indeed, I do wonder if there is much of anyone who pays much attention to the plight of that poor country any more. 


  Zarkowi Is Dead But The Worst Terrorist Still Remains
Archives : Notes from Exile
By David Irby on Jun 18, 2006 - 7:31:00 PM
al-qaida_001.jpg
UNITED STATES—The big news is the killing in Iraq of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, while in California it is the June Primary and the Congressional election in North San Diego.


Crazier And Crazier!
Archives : Notes from Exile
By David Irby on May 21, 2006 - 6:57:00 PM

UNITED STATES—That George W. Bush and his administration is "intelligence/Intelligence challenged", is hardly news by now.  And a lack of intelligence with a small "i" spooks the CIA and others.


  The Terrible Beauty! Ireland's 1916 Easter Rising, Its World Significance
Archives : Notes from Exile
By David Irby on Apr 23, 2006 - 6:09:00 PM
proclamation.jpg
IRELAND Ireland is celebrating its equivalent of the 4th of July, the Easter Rebellion of 1916.  But this is the first time in years for large-scale official celebrations.

How St. Patrick Saved Civilization

stpatrick.jpg
IRELANDIt's fun time again! "Green Hats, Green Beer, Green Gills" time!  But for me, St. Patrick's Day is also always a time to seriously contemplate the saint.  I suppose such ideas are a "hard sell.”


  A Hypocritical "Requiem" For Coretta King””And Other Lies
Archives : Notes from Exile
By David Irby on Feb 19, 2006 - 7:03:00 PM
king.jpg
UNITED STATES—A year ago, George W. Bush stood by the bier of Rosa Parks, and this year he stood by that of Coretta Scott King. In each instance he was full of praise for these two ladies of the Civil Rights Movement. 


Judge Alito And Clarence Ray Allen (Support The Moratorium!)
Archives : Notes from Exile
By David Irby on Jan 22, 2006 - 7:34:00 PM
ph2006011301098_1__001.jpg
CALIFORNIA—Last month I predicted that, by the time this would be read, "Tookie" Williams would have already been executed. By the time that this is read, Clarence Ray Allen will be executed. 


  Goodwill To All! But What About Those On Death Row?
Archives : Notes from Exile
By David Irby on Dec 18, 2005 - 7:15:00 PM

UNITED STATESI began this column nearly a year ago in opposition to Mr. Nathan Tabor, a "Christian" who seems to sincerely oppose abortion, but who opposes nearly all of John Paul II's "Culture of Life."


Of Fundamentalists And Historical Re-Writes
Archives : Notes from Exile
By David Irby on Nov 20, 2005 - 7:02:00 PM
pat_informal_2_md_1__001.jpg
UNITED STATES—I am overjoyed at Schwarzenegger's defeat by my own beloved SEIU and other unions. Who's the "girly man" now, Arnold?  The next step is for you to meet your own "Terminator!" 


  The Spirit Of Chaney, Goodman And Schwerner
Archives : Notes from Exile
By David Irby on Oct 16, 2005 - 6:58:00 PM
bush_008.jpg
UNITED STATES—I have been on holiday for awhile and how the world has changed! "George Bush doesn't care about Black people!" Or anyone that isn't rich.  New Orleans after Katrina proved that.


Bush Is "God" Himself!
Archives : Notes from Exile
By David Irby on Jun 26, 2005 - 7:23:00 PM
tv_george-bush_jun1305_150.jpg
UNITED STATES—I intended to steer away from specifically religious themes, but I must put that off again because, somehow, words crept into my Canyon News article, which were not my own.


  Ratzinger Writ Large, Viva Benedicto!
Archives : Notes from Exile
By David Irby on May 22, 2005 - 7:59:00 PM
r1070914019-pop-a.jpg
VATICAN CITY—I must respond to the distorted way that some writers apply such words as “conservative” to our beloved John Paul II and also to Joseph Ratzinger who is now (praise God!) Benedict XVI.


John Paul's Passover Of The Threshold Of Hope, Above The Right And The Left
Archives : Notes from Exile
By David Irby on Apr 17, 2005 - 7:40:00 PM
john-paul-aa.jpg
VATICAN CITY—In an Eastertide counterpoint, John Paul II played out his own Passion. On Good Friday he appeared by video-link only, apparently clasping a cross in his hands.


  Saint Patrick's "Jewish" Message
Archives : Notes from Exile
By David Irby on Mar 20, 2005 - 7:30:00 PM
leprechaun1.jpg
IRELAND—St. Patrick’s Day is big in the USA because it is a day when everyone likes to become “a little bit Irish.” This includes a lot of silliness, parades and green beer. 


Schwerner, Goodman, Chaney””And Me
Archives : Notes from Exile
By David Irby on Feb 13, 2005 - 7:17:00 PM
murdered-alive-a.jpg
UNITED STATESMichael Schwerner, Andrew Goodman and James Chaney were three Civil Rights Workers who were murdered in Mississippi in 1964, and it has taken until now to prosecute the ringleader.


  Another Tsunami For The Democrats? Let's Avoid It!

UNITED STATES
A "Tsunami" may be headed toward the Democratic Party. This time it's the possibility that Howard Dean may be elected as the DNC Chair.
