True peace - by Ted Rudow III, MA
True Peace Although peace has been the goal of mankind for thousands of years—and the desire for peace is never so great as it is at Christmas—it seems that our ability to find or establish peace continues to elude us. Today, after the end of the Cold War, bloody hostilities continue on nearly every continent, reaching global proportions once again after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11 in New York City, Washington, D.C., and near Pittsburgh.

Violence and barbarism - by Ted Rudow III, MA
Don't you remember the "Ministry of Truth" of the dictatorship in 1984? Its job was to reseach all the books and expunge all the dereogatory references to their regime. They would twist the facts and write the books the way they "should" be, the way it "really" happened, so the people would never know how it really did happen.

Statute of Limitations Runs Out on Injustice at Yale University - by Colleen Corry
New York Times published an article titled “Handling of Sexual Harassment Case Poses Larger Questions at Yale”, which discusses a case of sexual harassment, stalking, and abuse of a woman and prominent doctor who at the time worked in the Cardiology Department at Yale University. While the author of the initial article did a decent job at summarizing the issue, the case is five years old, which is a fact that seems to have been swept under the rug.
