On, Apparently, Not Getting the Memo

I broke down and subscribed to Harper's after they jacked up their newsstand price. I can't go without my Harper's [You shouldn't either.] But apparently, much like David Remnick before him, the illustrious Roger Hodge somehow neglected to notify me of Harper's Weekly Review, which resides online. I had to learn about it from The Morning News. Not bad, but still. When is Big Media going to realize it's real problem is not paying me enough attention?

But nevermind that for now. Here's an excerpt from this/last week [Urgent note to Mr Hodge: What, no archive??]

President George W. Bush staged a handshake between the Israeli and Palestinian prime ministers at a summit meeting in Jordan. President Bush, Prime Ministers Ariel Sharon and Mahmoud Abbas, and King Abdullah II of Jordan stood outdoors together in the hot sun wearing suits and ties but were kept free of unsightly perspiration by tubes installed by White House operatives that blasted cold air from an ultra-quiet air conditioner that was hidden nearby. Sharon and Abbas read statements about the "road map" to peace that were largely written by American officials. "I think when you analyze the statements, you'll find them to be historic," Bush told reporters later. "Amazing things were said." Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade responded to the summit with a joint attack on an Israeli military outpost in Gaza, killing four soldiers. Elsewhere, in the West Bank, Israeli forces shot a seven-year-old Palestinian girl in the abdomen.

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
