NEWS AND COMMENTARY
BY DAVID T. WRIGHT
David T. Wright is one of the
premier writers for The Last Ditch, and a lover of the news.
He searches out news stories you would probably otherwise miss and his sardonic eye penetrates the absurdities and implications that you can be sure will not be be discussed on TV, on talk radio, or on the talking-head shows. He is not misled by the legerdemain that would have you look one direction while the real action is taking place in the other.
And he invites your comments on his observations.
Every entry includes the URL for the original story (Thornwalker.com wouldnt dream of violating a copyright by reprinting it without permission!) and David Wrights comments. The title shown below is sometimes Wrights, sometimes the original publications. Thornwalker cannot guarantee that off-site files will be maintained as long as our links to them are, but once we discover that a link is dead, we will cease to show it as live. Readers are encouraged to notify us if they find broken links. It may also be worthwhile checking to see whether the story can be found at www.archive.org.
Once youre good and addicted to Wrights comments on the news, be sure to check out his substantive essays and observations at The Last Ditch. A good essay to begin with is Why Did They Do It? Wrights list of U.S. policies and practices that led to the September 11, 2001 atrocities.
Archived N&Cs will be maintained on this site indefinitely.
