JFK's three, yes, cosmic, accomplishments John F. Kennedy, murdered on this date fifty years ago, was more than a handsome young prince of some mythic Camelot who served 1,000 days. He was our greatest president.He gave us the moon. He saved us from nuclear doom. He launched the Whole Earth movement.

"Brisk, but with feeling'--my ET Hall of Fame remarks On Oct. 20, I was inducted into the East Tennessee Writers Hall of Fame, an honor I thought would never come my way, as my writings, tho popular, had been highly controversial in the region. I'd walked away from my column of 21 years at the Knoxville News-Sentinel rather than agree to stop writing about national issues. This was the elephant in the ballroom, last Thursday, and I felt I had to acknowledge it. Here's my speech.

Obama at Ground Zero--How Executing Osama bin Laden Brutalized Us All And if we've come to this, applauding like chimps for acts of barbaric bloodletting that took place in front of the slaughtered man's 12-year-old daughter and others, then we are at ground zero on the evolutionary scale. We shot the suspect in the heart and head, then threw his body in the sea. Tell me how this makes the past decade of needless war, lies, torture and waste any easier. To me it's just more of the same.

Why Obama's right on Libya but Bush was wrong on Iraq Start with the lies. President Obama was forthright last night in telling Americans and the world why we must intervene in Libya. No one could doubt the evidence he used to build his case of opposing a bloodbath. The evidence was everywhere before our eyes. This was not true of Bush and Iraq. The reasons he concocted for going to war did not pass the sniff test.

Atoms for War, Atoms for Peace: Only Japan knows both sides of nuclear coin Only God--if anyone--knows how critical this crisis can become, but it's bad enough to render Japan a poster child for extremes of nuclear madness experienced by humans to date. So how did Japan go from target of war nukes to willing participant in nuclear madness.

Cheney-Bush still gushing toxic history into our world In 2003 I wrote, "If George W. Bush had run for president on a platform of making the world uninhabitable for humankind, he could scarcely have done better at starting us down such a path." Even now oil gushes from a hole in the bottom of the sea, thanks to Bush, Cheney, Halliburton and BP.

Cheney-Bush Still Gushing Toxic History Into Our World In his second administration--two wars and a million deaths later--Bush demoted Cheney, but by then it was too late. Cheney had unleashed forces that will haunt the world for decades if not centuries. Even now oil gushes from a hole in the bottom of the sea, thanks to Bush, Cheney, Halliburton and BP.

Obama and that old June, croon, spoon moon It's astounding that Obama intends pulling the plug on President Bush's plans to return us to the moon by about 2020, with no cut in spending. I'm no Bush fan, but his moon plans were based on designing a program reminiscent of Apollo, which gave us damn near all the tools a space-faring nation needs to explore the entire solar system.

At Last We've Entered the New Millennium... Sort of Start with the cultural. "Avatar," the flashiest and most popular new film in years proffers a message born of a Whole Earth mentality... Other indicators offer hope as well, but dark tones pertain.

I can't go along just because it's Obama's war If Osama bin Laden's still alive, he must be laughing. He's damn near bankrupted us. Yet, instead of cutting back, Obama's upping the ante.

Leave a comment there telling the US government to get behind a vision embraced by unlikely bedfellows who have envisioned a nuclear-weapons-free future. Specifically, ask our politicos and bureaucrats to drop plans to build a ruinous new weapons complex in Oak Ridge, TN.

On Obama's role in New Millennium Writings Perhaps childishly, some of us looked to the new millennium as a time when humans would emerge from our planetary nursery and set aside childish things such as war, economic hooliganism and environmental abuse. Our species would graduate to embrace the shining chalice of our Whole Earth and drink deep her royal blue promise. It hasn't quite worked out that way.

To all the late lamented boys and girls of summer, come back, go away, come back... When John Lennon died my youth curled up and fed itself to Grief.

Still, here it is...

Kennedys' dark tragedies never eclipsed their lofty lunar glow Even as astronauts navigated their way toward the moon a quarter-million miles distant, JFK's younger brother Edward took a short drive toward a dark drink of water with a young woman not his wife. Mary Jo Kopechne drowned. The event robbed the moon of Kennedy luster, and Edward of any real chance at the presidency.

Obama As Spock? Beam Me Up Scottie Newsweek recently featured a cover story suggesting Obama must be a Vulcan. Let's hope not, at least not in director J.J. Abrams' dark film. In the Sixties, kids like me believed the Whole Earth as seen from space just might be our salvation. Star Trek was not only symbolic but catalytic of such change. Each Friday it offered new ways of understanding The Other. This movie embraces the dark side.

You say the New Deal didn't work? Prove it The usual suspects declare that Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal didn't end the Great Depression. World War II ended the Great Depression, they cry in harmony, and so we shouldn't buy into President Obama's stimulus spending plan. But what was WWII if not the ultimate in spending, jobs and protectionism?

Terrorist in my home town 'with up so floating many bells down' An out-of-work truckdriver brought a guitar case into a Unitarian church where I teach, pulled out a shotgun and shot eight people. He smiled as he pleaded guilty Monday to killing two and wounding six last summer because he hated liberals. Don't tell me our former president kept us free from terror.

Obama as Savior? He'd better be Our challenges are existential, not in some mysterious, intellectual way, but in the sense that our very existence--as a nation, a species, as individuals--has been put at risk. And it's been put at risk mostly by forces that have grown from the darkness inside our own hearts.

Church shootings and candle lights vie beneath 'Bible black' skies The sky was Bible black and ringing with thunder last night above Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church in West Knoxville.

None of the children were shot, but two adults later died.
