I've been locked up on this planet too long. If I don't get home soon, I'll be one dead alien. All I really need is for Moctezuma to drag me up to the altar, pluck out my beating heart, maybe coat his forearms with my blood if he has time. Is that so much to ask? I wonder...Maybe Moctezuma knows what I really am. I mean, I look human. At least I think I got all the head-holes in the right places. But what if Moctezum...

CIA Mission to an Internal HELL: A True Story of Intrigue

This is the strange and yet factual story of an American soldier’s voluntary involvement in a mission to provide training to Montagnard Tribesmen in their villages somewhere in the mountainous terrain of Vietnam near the Laotian border. It has been more than fifty years since the mission took place, and with the secrecy recently lifted on the story it can now be told by one of the few persons involved.The story chronicles a virtually unknown part of the intrigue and courage associated with a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) operation that simply did not or could not function as it was intended to do.Later research indicates that the operation probably involved persons by the hundreds, mostly young soldiers, and by early 1961 the death rate was approaching the point of raising suspicions...

Berkeley 1967-2017 Summer of Love (Visit Berkeley)

by Michael A. Estrada

There are moments in time when a word or thought has such power it changes history; a generation so involved in the moment it becomes unstoppable; a spiritual awakening so profound that its very conception shatters perceptions, halts the world and makes people from all nations take notice. And for Berkeley, this moment can be traced to the 1960s. The Summer of Love 1967, centered in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury district, turned Berkeley into the epicenter of the counterculture movement. It was a tumultuous and often violent period marked by the origins of the Free Speech Movement beginning with the May 1960 House Un-American Activities Committee hearings at San Francisco City Hall, the emergence of the counterculture, the anti-war protests, the rise of the Women’s Movement, and endin...

Consider these first words of the Gettysburg Address. For many, they comprise a mere introduction to the famous speech by Abraham Lincoln. Yet, taken on their own, they have a profound meaning. They speak to the actions and sacrifices of the Founding Mothers and Fathers, based on the concepts of Liberty and Equality. In this one sentence, Lincoln demonstrates the inspiring wisdom and humanity of our Founders.Such wisdom and humanity appear to be lacking today...
