This is Bunny, who got her name because when she was a tiny kitten—and she was a VERY tiny kitten— she resembled a “dust bunny,” one of those lumps of grey dust that you find under a heavy piece of furniture that you can’t easily get under to dust. Bunny matured to a whopping 6.5 pounds as an adult. Because she was so small, she was always at or near the bottom of the “peck order” of my multi-cat household.

My dear friend and senior contributing editor to this publication, Paul Edwards, has just alerted me to Tom Feeley’s struggle to stay alive. For those in the genuinely progressive, anti-imperialist community, who, for some reason, never heard of Tom, let me just put it simply: Tom Feeley is editor at Information Clearing House, which he correctly describes as, “A fiercely, independent source of news and information.” Yes, ICH is a key link in the ridiculously thin line of grotesquely underfunded websites still devoted to truth, truth when it matters most.

If we lose hope, life ends…

AJAMU BARAKA—But Glen made a conscious decision to take, as Kwame Nkrumah framed it, a “revolutionary path.” That path is always more difficult, for not many take it. As a result, the path is quite narrow, no more than a trail through the forest of normalized reaction projected to the masses as supposed “common sense.” When one takes that path, very few accolades nor real economic stability, retirement funds or clear paths forward are available.
It might end with one laying in a hospital bed for two weeks, while furiously pounding out two issues of Black Agenda Report, suspecting they may be the last few you will have a hand in shaping and passing quietly on the morning the next issue was due to come out.
