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.

Must-Read: "The Other WIPP" -- Gov't Geological Consultant On Serious Problems, Obvious Long Before Shipments Began

Roger Yates Anderson was hired as a geological consultant by the government before waste was ever emplaced at the WIPP in New Mexico.  A thorough and thoughtful scholar, he who saw some real obvious problems back in 1999. Since the unpopularity of his critical input quickly led to his being replaced, "The Other Wipp" documents these for posterity -- and, luckily for us, his writing shines with the unmistakable spiritual sensitivity of one of them artist-types, and is therefore quite a pleasure to read, as well.

This is a real gem.  Enjoy.

Be seeing you.
