"The collage of stories that emerges, ranging from the war of 1948 to the present, doesn't have a clear beginning or end, but narrows the dizzying scope of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to comprehensible names and faces, including sympathetically tough and pragmatic women." from Publishers Weekly on Amazon

I love the idea that the "other" is your partner.  My recent post, love will tear us apart was trying to get to this idea.  End of love is the war.

This turned up in the google search too.
-I'm working on an essay about the "synchromystic blogosphere" and its roots in 9/11 conspiracy films so I guess I'll include it.  I don't think it is one I've seen, so I'm not sure of its content.

Abe's Axe is a symbol. Like the firey wand of Hermes, it is the conduit for bringing into action manifestations from the creative imagination. He is not killing vampires so much as freeing living dead men. The great emancipator would like to bring you into the 4th dimension of consciousness. He is going to have to kill you to do this, though. Or, actually, just annihilate your ego to transport you. In this instance, his axe is the craft. A craft is both a transport and a skill. The magician's wand is both. A pen can be mightier than the sword. What's your craft? Use your symbol well. . .
