AMERICAN DREAMS: Condemnations of America's lousy schools are so common as to elicit yawns--especially from the students, and even from many parents. America has pretty much shrugged and accepted the fact that most American kids don't measure up academically to kids in comparable nations, or even to kids from poor nations. Sure, kids from India or Ireland or South Korea might study harder and learn more. But here in the USA, we've got hipper malls, far more and far cooler cable channels, and infinitely more Taco Bells... STEVE VIVIAN "Wall Street's Cum Laude"
DAY ONE: When I was working in Africa, one of my grim pastimes was playing a semi-codified game which involved trying to get supplies overland from A to B without passing through a war zone... --- KEVIN CAREY, "AFRICA"
G21 EUROPE: Dear Mr. Life,
Thank you for your letter in which you inform me that you are canceling our sessions and that you are simply not interested to hear what I am thinking about the stories you have created. Albeit that you are explaining your decision based on my incompetence to criticize yourself because my opus is smaller than yours, and although you are saying that I can't be unprejudiced but only green-eyed, I think that you are simply running away from the possibility to hear anything other than laudatory comments.... RASTISLAV DURMAN, "Letters to Mr. Life"
|HOT LINKS(Not From Louisiana): New Link Partners are welcomed to the World Magazine fold. We give you a new place to link to children in need... RADIO RAHEEM.
MEMOIRS OF THE INFORMATION AGE: Mark Hurst is the founder and President of Creative Good a New York company that specializes in e-commerce strategy consulting and research. At the end of 1999, Mark got together with G21 to talk about the landscape on the Web and how it could be improved... "The Mark Hurst Interview"
MY GLASS HOUSE: Martin Luther King, Jr. was shot dead while continuing to agitate against American injustice. Few, if any, will make that the first fact they remind you of on 17 January, the day set aside in the United States to honor the man. You can be certain that every politician out on the campaign trail that day will make reference to King's memory; just not that part of the story..... ROD AMIS, "My Glass House"
PLANETARY MADNESS: We kick off our entry into the Aquarius-a-gO-gO with a lunar eclipse. Earth shadows Miss Luna, who is full and frisky as she pounces into passionate Leo, at 20:40 PST on Thursday the 20th. Veils are lifted where we need awareness, particularly as we trot into the jostling, sometimes shocking, wake-up(!) vibe of Aquarius..... JENNIFER BLUE, "Current Forecast"
POWERSSOUND: It's impossible to make an adverse comment about cornet genius Ruby Braff. For one thing, no one who knows jazz would believe criticism about this veteran performer. Just sit down and spend an hour listening to the new release from Braff, "Ruby Braff with Strings: In the Wee, Small Hours in London and New York" (Arbors Records). Even if you never heard of him prior to reading his name in this column, you will (assuming your ears are on straight) acclaim Braff as one of the best behind that condensed version of the more famous trumpet. ... BOB POWERS, "Braff Now, Braff in 78, Strings, Too"
