Shooting in Boston
there is an
incredible story in the Boston globe magazine this week

called Silence .....

"Jenry Gonzalez was shot in a crowded park while trying out for Pop Warner football. His unsolved shooting shows how reversing Boston's climate of witness fear will take a lot more than pulling "Stop Snitchin'" T-shirts off the shelves. By Neil Swidey | February 26, 2006"

the story is nothing new, but it is all new, and sends renewed chills into our thoughts....
Prehaps one of the best quotes is from the sister of the boy who was shot:

"...You look at other people, and you see their gray hair, and you think, `How would I look with gray hair? Would I ever get to that age?' ..."

the other is

IT'S LATE JANUARY, AND BEATRIZ GARCIA is back in her kitchen. The chairs are overturned on the table, so she can get her mop underneath. A year and a half ago, when her son's name was on the news every night, a lot of people made her assurances. They promised help getting her family moved to new subsidized housing. They promised uniformed patrols at all Pop Warner games. They promised to keep her updated on the investigation. And, of course, they promised to bring her son's shooter to justice.

She leans on the mop and squints one eye. "Everything they said they were going to do never happened."

She sees no use in dwelling on that. "Forget them," she says. "I just want for my son to be OK. That's all I need. ..."

what can we do?

color colour
what are primary colors ... Easy enough to explain to my
techno friends or so I thought
its Yellow red blue . . . YRB
well sort of, but not really
to my surprise there is the old color wheel above
and the REAL color wheel and additive and subtractive is link to compelling text for a new color wheel for kids.
This is part of subtractive
color. Light comes from a source (the sun)
it hits an object and some is absorbed. The light that bounces back is less!
Something has been subtracted from it. A red ball is reflecting what is left -
"red"! The rest of the color (colour) has been absorbed!

The there is additive RGB which is used on computers. Here are some god java applets

A drawing is worth 10,000 words
10,000 words can trigger 1,000,000 tears
but linking tears to anger and fears .... How does one postulate it

I fear our thoughts on this subject of freedoms of speech ....Are ....
... Are too shallow too narrow to bring us to where we need to be...
freedomS of speech not freedom of speech ? yes yes yes
"freedoms of speech" is to be saved? From what?
from us I fear......

Langston Hughes - Dream Deferred
What happens to a dream deferred?

Does it dry up
Like a raisin in the sun?

Or fester like a sore--
And then run?

Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over--
like a syrupy sweet?

Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.

Or does it explode?

so where is that dream o yours?

bush - can he blance
The Concord Coalition shows he cant
