Ain’t likely to suddenly start working…

(Chez Meinfelder)

Librarians rule.

Forwarded from Aaron Engelhart via my Uncle Larry:
The QPSAT (Quick Political Scholastic Aptitude Test)
This test consists of one (1) multiple-choice question (so you better get it right!)

Here’s a list of the countries that the U.S. has bombed since the end of World War II, compiled by historian William Blum:
China 1945-46
Korea 1950-53
China 1950-53
Guatemala 1954
Indonesia 1958
Cuba 1959-60
Guatemala 1960
Congo 1964
Peru 1965
Laos 1964-73
Vietnam 1961-73
Cambodia 1969-70
Guatemala 1967-69
Grenada 1983
Libya 1986
El Salvador 1980s
Nicaragua 1980s
Panama 1989
Iraq 1991-99
Sudan 1998
Afghanistan 1998
Yugoslavia 1999

In how many of these instances did a democratic government, respectful of human rights, occur as a direct result? Choose one of the following:
(a) 0
(b) zero
(c) none
(d) not a one
(e) zip
(f) a whole number between -1 and +1
(g) zilch

I haven’t perused these yet, but here are some alternate news sources posted to the Library school mailing list at San Jose State:
Webactive
Znet
The Nation
National Public Radio

And if the news doesn’t depress you enough, consider your own mortality.
