Activists from CODEPINK showed up at John Marshall Park in Washington, D.C., on Saturday May 8, 2010. The were joined briefly by activists fighting for the creation of a national jobs program. CODEPINK was celebrating not only Mother’s Day, but echoing the spirit of Julia Ward Howe’s 1870 Proclamation. Ms. Howe demanded on that Mother’s Day past for the nation to “Disarm, Disarm! Mothers say Disarm!” Medea Benjamin, Cofounder of Code Pink, shared her views about that history and more at today’s event. See CodePink4Peace for background.

Two authors, Robert Zaretsky and Elizabeth Hawes, have resurrected Albert Camus, the late French Algerian novelist and philosopher, in their just released books. I’m recommending both of their tomes. I think their efforts contribute, in different ways, to enhancing Camus’ literary legacy. Camus’ courageous moralizing against the excesses of the ideologues of his days is timely. Let’s face it, we too live in an era where crazed warmongers are running amuck.
