Incredibly Strange Databases / Unusual information collections reveal our digital subconsciousAs the Internet evolves and more users flock to the Web, it seems inevitable that the peculiar public/private world of cyberspace will begin to reveal patterns in our innermost thoughts, as well as in our economic and social lives. The Net is, after all, a human tool. And the more we search it, the more we're likely to learn about what it means to be human.

Sex Industry Sent Topsy-Turvy by Terror "People have felt vulnerable. They've been
questioning their real values compared to the materialistic ones
we're used to obsessing over," he says. "Sex is a part of intimacy
and we're not virgins thinking 'we'd better get laid before we die.'
If you haven't really made love, if you haven't fucked in a long
time, it's important. The pleasures of the flesh, of the
here-and-now -- it's a cool thing."

Let Terminally Ill Choose Quality Of Their Death Ashcroft appears to be using the law only to enforce his personal faith and moral convictions. All of us Americans should defend his right to hold onto his beliefs. But the Constitution is supposed to prevent him from imposing his beliefs on us. Ashcroft's agents have enough on their hands these days trying to track down terrorists. They don't need to be trying to second-guess doctors on how many painkillers they should give out.

I Love My Country. But Perhaps Not This One When in the privacy of the family homestead I
ventured the opinion that the 11 September attacks were a wicked response to
wrong-headed US intervention in the Middle East, a dear family member counseled,
"Don't say that too loud, Bill. Someone will report you to the police." She was serious.

Triple XXX Taboo The government should not
have the right to regulate what consenting adults willingly put into
their orifices, whether it's a joint, a penis, a pot brownie or a fist. If it
feels good and nobody gets hurt, what's the big deal? Everyone
should have the right to pursue harmless pleasure, self-expression
and profit without facing dire social repercussions and legal

The 2000 Election Must Not Be Forgotten by John Nichols The contested presidential election of 2000 has been pushed so far off the national
radar that a consortium of media outlets, after spending more than $1 million to sort
through Florida’s uncounted ballots in search of a winner, felt no compunctions about
delaying revelation of the results for two months in order to avoid the suggestion of
disloyalty to a president whose electoral legitimacy remains dubious at best.

Corporate Patriotism Not only is the Treasury being raided, but regulations protecting everything from

Corporate Patriotism As Bill Moyers, the author and national journalist, commented: "They (the corporations)
are counting on your patriotism to distract you from their plunder. They're counting on you
to stand at attention with your hand over your heart, pledging allegiance to the flag, while
they pick your pocket."

KEN KESEY 1935-2001
"As I've often told Ginsberg," he began, "you can't blame the President for the
state of the country, it's always the poets' fault. You can't expect politicians to
come up with a vision, they don't have it in them. Poets have to come up with
the vision and they have to turn it on so it sparks and catches hold."

Critics spellbound by Potter movie The Daily Telegraph's John Hiscock said director Christopher Columbus had successfully remained faithful to the book.
"He has managed to keep the saccharine to a minimum, and instead allows Rowling's story to unfold almost exactly as she wrote it," Hiscock wrote.
