Festival of the Corn. Held each year on the Mashantucket Pequot Reservation in southeastern Connecticut.                

I came across a really interesting-looking site today, the Mashantucket Pequot Museum and Research Center, in Mashantucket, Connecticut.

This is from their page describing the  permanent exhibits in the Museum:

“Utilizing the latest in exhibit design and technology, the 85,000-square-foot permanent indoor exhibits present four types of interpretation to the visitor: dioramas, text panels, interactive computer programs, and a series of films. Evolving Mashantucket Pequot life is conveyed through dioramas and exhibits, films and videos, interactive programs, archival materials, ethnographic and archaeological collections, and commissioned works of art and traditional crafts by Native artisans. A glacial crevasse, a caribou hunt of 11,000 years ago, a walk-through, 16th-century woodland Indian village, a 17th-century Pequot fort, and an outdoor, 18th-century farmstead set on two acres with orchards and gardens are some of the exhibits that take visitors from the last Ice Age to modern times.”

As the crazies ratchet up their ravings about the effrontery of Muslims to build an Islamic complex several blocks from the “sacred” site of the former Twin Towers, the plethora of voices questioning the “official” lies about 911 grows.  I am one of many who not only believes that our government has lied about 9.11, as it has so many other things, but that such lies show that our government is a gang of war criminals and psychopaths, worse even than Nazi Germany, against which my own father fought in the US Army Air Force so long ago.

The parallels to Adolph Hitler’s burning of the Reichstag in 1933 are seldom pointed out.  Hitler used that “false flag operation” as an excuse to end civil liberties in Germany and whip up anti-Semitism.  Now, the “new anti-Semitism” is hatred of the “other tribe” of Semites, the Arabs.

I haven’t been following this issue all that closely, though, so I will be glad to hear of other sites that may have reasonable evidence about what happened on that day.

Nonviolent activism is the only hope for changing a society hellbent on destruction and death.  Here are some sites for activists.

Please check back with me, as I will be updating this, or write to me if you have a particular concern and want to contact groups that are active on that issue.

Welcome to Progressive Librarian.

My passion is helping people make connections to information and resources about peace, nonviolent social change, women and minorities, the Third World, and the environment.  I have been involved in these matters all my life, and my training as a professional librarian helps me to organize resources for the progressive community.

I hope this blog will further these goals.  I have been organizing my collection for over a year now, and I will try to post some of it in this blog.  I will welcome constructive criticism and suggestions for additions, and I hope that if you are looking for a resource in one of these categories, this blog will help you find it.

Peace and best wishes,
