Mark Twain War Prayer [satire] "O Lord our Father, our young patriots, idols of our hearts, go forth to battle -- be Thou near them! With them--in spirit--we also go forth from the sweet peace of our beloved firesides to smite the foe. O Lord our God, help us to tear their soldiers to bloody shreds with our shells; help us to cover their smiling fields with the pale forms of their patriot dead; help us to drown the thunder of the guns with shrieks of their wounded, writhing in pain; help us to lay waste their humble homes with hurricanes of fire; help us to wring the hearts of their unoffending widows with unavailing grief; help us to turn them out roofless with their little children to wander unfriended the wastes of their desolated land in rags and hunger and thirst, sports of the sun flames of summer and the icy winds of winter, broken in spirit, worn with travail, imploring Thee for the refuge of the grave and denied it -- for our sakes who adore Thee, Lord, blast their hopes, blight their lives, protract their bitter pilgrimage, make heavy their steps, water their way with tears, stain the white snow with the blood of their wounded feet! We ask it, in the spirit of love, of Him Who is the Source of Love, and Who is the ever-faithful refuge and friend of all that are sore beset and seek His aid with humble and contrite hearts. Amen."
PHILADELPHIA -- Lillian Willoughby, a Deptford Quaker who will turn 90 in January, went to jail Wednesday to protest the war in Iraq. Shortly before noon, Willoughby rose from her wheelchair, gave her husband of 64 years, George, a hug and a kiss, and disappeared into the federal detention center at Seventh and Arch streets here. Reporting with her were five other peace activists, including a young couple from Camden, Cassie Haw, 22, and her husband, Chris, 23. All were convicted of obstructing the entrance to the federal building in Philadelphia on March 20, 2003, the day the United States invaded Iraq. Given a choice between a $250 fine and a seven-day jail term, the six chose jail. "I don't believe supporting the war in any way," Willoughby said Wednesday.

GMC Holding Corporation Announces Economical Solution for the World's Power and Energy Needs The motor is designed on the known principals set forth by Nikola Tesla. The operation is based on the collapsing and subsequent expanding of the permanent magnetic field. This produces two effects: the first is tremendous repulsion and torque, as is true in all DC motors; the second effect is that of a back electromagnetic force (Ke). It is this Ke energy that is used in a regenerative fashion to increase the motor's efficiency to extremely high levels. Another effect of the rapid pulsing of the electromagnetic field is the phenomenon of "cold running". Unlike conventional motors which produce tremendous heat, this motor exhibits very little temperature rise during operation.
