Johanna Faust, a mixed race Jew, prefers to publish pseudonymously. She is committed: first, to preventing war, ecological disaster, and nuclear apocalypse; last to not only fighting for personal privacy & the freedom of information, but, by representing herself as a soldier in that fight, to exhorting others to do the same. She is a poet, always. All these efforts find representation here: "ah, Mephistophelis" is so named after the last line of Christopher Marlowe's Dr. Faustus, whose heretical success flouted the censor for a time.

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.
