Johanna Faust, a mixed race Jew, prefers to publish pseudonymously. She is committed: to preventing war, ecological disaster, and nuclear apocalypse; to keeping information available and free; and to not only fighting for personal privacy, but, by representing herself as a soldier in that fight, to exhorting others to do the same. All these efforts find representation on her blog "ah, Mephistophelis," so named after the last line of Chirstopher Marlowe's in his famous Dr. Faustus, which, as some would have it, successfully flouted the censor for a time. A female Faust, she is a poet, always.

  1. Lenzorizzo here. I remember the snowfall of 76 well. ( Well until you mentioned it I didn't remember the exact date)But we stoners met at school (McAteer High)in the morning as usual, then cut out for Golden Gate Park and played in the snow. It was outstanding! I hope the youth of the new generation have the balls to cut school and have fun on a very rare day. The 70s were different, I know. Hell, I sold acid to my teachers back then and got stoned with others. Does that happen in high schools now? Or are there too many cops?
