Technology has always found its greatest consumer in a
nation's war and defense efforts. Since the last attempts at a
"Star Wars" defense system, has technology changed
considerably enough to make the latest Missile Defense
initiatives more successful? Can such an application of
science be successful? Is a militarized space inevitable,
necessary or impossible?

"I'm off to mill around with, and get ignored by, large
numbers of people. The National Conference on Media Reform has
1400 attendants - some who are pretty angry at the mainstream
press. If the matter comes up, I'll talk about the towering
good faith the mainstream press often show, as well - and the
need to preserve the necessary relationships that are in
"Probably nobody will be interested. And I have no status
whatsoever - and no institutional connections.

It has been fun to go and listen. As just one of a
crowd, of course. But it has been pleasant to do a lot of
talking with a lot of able, interesting people. My wife and I
have invited one guy to dinner after the conference - his
plane doesn't leave till Monday.
The keynote session of the National Conference on Media
Reform last night was was really wonderful - great
speeches by FCC Commisioner Johnathan Adelstein ( who
played a mean harmonica at the concert with Billy Bragg later
) - by Senator Russ Feingold , Amy Goodman ,
Rep Maurice Hinchley, , Rep Louise Slaughter ,
John Nichols , Studs Terkel , Bill Moyers
and Al Franken .
There's a session by the head of PBS in not much more than
an hour - have to catch up later.
I think the NYT should have covered the conference.

Looks like you've reduced yourself to a mass of
frothing-at-the-mouth incoherence. Not a good vision of a
"World Asset" !
The lengths some people go to, to dodge questions they
hasve been demaning of others: lchic's employers and their
interest in her continued presence here ?
Us (lchic & rshow) against the world -- world divided
into NYT employees/"hacks" and CIA operatives ????
Nilihistic-cantabbulations ... no one reads
... you're dead in the water man!
EXCEPT you, rshow55 and remaining few [one of the regulars
has also thought fit to Un-"Ignore" me -- a 'timely' gesture].
Did you know that you & rshow55 have also been responding
to me and my comments -- or were you too busy spewing nonsense

Talking about "PETTY," may I refer you back to your own
posts -- good examples.

"How can a country that can't throw and
catch a ball run an MD system?"
As I said several time before (you may not remember it in
your frenzied responses to them), to you and rshow, everything

NOT even a report on the Media conference you attended.
Now that you have made the CDs, I look forward to seeing
them ALL over the stores around the world (with able
assistance from "World Asset").
As to my name 'written on the subway walls', I've not seen

The idiot lchic, with her hundreds of SPAM posts, and her
mentally-ill partner, only have an audience for their
collective insanity for...five days or so-that's it for these
utter a..holes....what'll the lunatics and morons do next..??
No audience for the insane Showalter in just five days...count
'em good Showalter....this is IT for you....no more World
Asset"; no more anything...that is, unless the lunatics are
already making plans to infest (like a disease) another

We've been trying to tell the insane lunatics to "SHUT UP"
for weeks...no luck of course...but Thank God for the NYT, who
is doing our work for us, and getting rid of Showalter and his
idiot friend....wonder what he'll do all day w/no audience, no
Forum, he obviously has to have one..
