    Belafonte: Bush kept him from King rites Legendary entertainer and civil rights activist Harry Belafonte on Tuesday explained his absence from Coretta Scott King's funeral. Belafonte told reporters before a speech at Case Western Reserve University that President Bush influenced the King family to disinvite him from the funeral in suburban Atlanta on Feb. 7. Belafonte, known to be a friend of Martin Luther King Jr., said he was told about the decision the day before the funeral, at which he had been scheduled to speak. The King children made the final decision, Belafonte said, but they were "fiercely intimidated...

    Entertainer Harry Belafonte, one of the Bush administration's harshest critics, compared the Homeland Security Department to the Nazi Gestapo on Saturday and attacked the president as a liar. "We've come to this dark time in which the new Gestapo of Homeland Security lurks here, where citizens are having their rights suspended," Belafonte said in a speech to the annual meeting of the Arts Presenters Members Conference. "You can be arrested and not charged. You can be arrested and have no right to counsel," said Belafonte. Belafonte's remarks on Saturday — part of a 45-minute speech on the role of the...

    I Saw Fire In The Sky Judy Curmi 2-11-2005 This was a very vivid dream. The dream occurred on a bright sunny day. I was walking along a black-topped road. My mother and sister Rosie were with me. We were in an upscale salt-water community, perhaps along the coast of California or Florida. Along the sides of the road were guardrails made of steel rods and thick beams of wood painted white, in keeping with a nautical theme. To our right a ramp went down steeply to wooden docks holding a number of small pleasure craft. Due to the steepness...

    The (Manchester) Union Leader ^ | 7-27-4 | Andrew Cline
    Democrats filling the hotels, sidewalks, cafes, bars and restaurants of Boston and swarming through the FleetCenter this week have a message they desperately want the rest of America to hear. We are not liberal. These politicos will spend the bulk of this week insisting that the Democratic Party is the one that represents the values and ideals of Middle America. The Republicans, they will say, are the ones whose beliefs are so far beyond the norm that they simply cannot be trusted. Even the City of Boston is in on the act. The city, its boosters and local journalists are...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - Two former presidents and the widow of Lyndon B. Johnson are calling on the History Channel to investigate a documentary it aired alleging President Johnson was involved in the Kennedy assassination. Lady Bird Johnson said the film "falsely and irresponsibly" accuses her husband of conspiring to kill President Kennedy. No accusation made against Johnson "has hurt as painfully," the 91-year-old former first lady said in a Jan. 29 letter. Her husband died in 1973. Copies of her letter were sent to the chief executives of three companies that own A&E Networks, which includes the History Channel....

    DULUTH -- The controversy generated by Thomas Bieter's proposed lawsuit against me and the Weekly Reader here in Duluth for publishing a series on the death of Sen. Paul Wellstone seems to have missed the point. In those columns, I lay out the evidence, much of which is in the public record, that has led me to the belief that this was an assassination and that the White House may have been involved.
