Low-Watt Radio Wields Its Power

This is an interesting idea - I'm currently involved with a project called OdinLIVES! that does a Heathen radio broadcast on shortwave (and, soon, over the 'Net). The airtime is cheap enough, and the coverage is [theoretically] very good, but I can't help but beleive that a "network" of these kinds of stations would assist us in getting the word out far more effectively than a shortwave or Internet-only broadcast.

Four years ago the FCC made honest people out of a few pirates. Community broadcasters are moving ahead, but getting a license doesn't automatically mean success. Jason Silverman reports from Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Militants in Europe Openly Call for Jihad and the Rule of Islam

Maybe we here in the US don't have nearly as much of a problem as our European friends ...

They swear allegiance to Osama bin Laden and his goal of toppling Western democracies to establish an Islamic superstate under Shariah law, like Afghanistan under the Taliban. They call the Sept. 11 hijackers the "Magnificent 19" and regard the Madrid train bombings as a clever way to drive a wedge into Europe.

The call to jihad is rising in the streets of Europe, and is being answered, counterterrorism officials say.

Mouse gets a new home

A busy day on the farm, yesterday. Kevyn sold his miniture donkey Mouse, who'd been staying here for almost a year, to the daughter of a neighbor as a 4H project. He took off to get groomed and pampered ... poor Mouse! Not!

I wish I could say I was sorry to see him go, but I can't bring myself to lie like that in print! About all Mouse accomplished here was teaching Hammer to "punt" the chickens, and bothering the Hel out of Wulfie (our Highland cow) by continually trying to nurse! Guess he thought he was a calf, or was at least hoping no one would notice! What a strange little beast!
