Lake Superior State University Issues 2003 List Of Banished Words
by LSSU Public Relations Office staff
'Make no mistakes about it,' Lake Superior State University issued its 28th
annual 'extreme' List of Words Banished from the Queen's English for Mis-Use,
Over-Use and General Uselessness, which the world needs 'now, more than
ever.'LSSU has been compiling the list since 1976, choosing from nominations
sent from around the world. This year, words and phrases were pulled from a
record 3,000 nominations.
The Alienated State of America: A Hateful Divide
by Bryan Craeg Evans  
Since the appointment of Bush Jr. to terrorize and plunder our children's
future, hate has become fashionable in America, along with terror. Never mind
that a thorough investigation of the circumstances leading up to and
surrounding the September 11 attacks has yet to take place, having been
blocked by the Bush White House at every avenue, along with the Enron and
Halliburton scandals. Instead, the country is being herded onward toward
global warfare, mobilizing millions of our men and women into harm's way and
prodding every underdeveloped region of the world in search of places to test
our latest future-weapons. America has become a steroid-choked reality show
costing billions of dollars a day, arming every available space of the planet
against anyone who may resist the corporate demand to feed our gluttonous
Feeding the Ancestors
by Cathy McCarthy  
Two summers ago, a friend and I trekked north to Wikwemikong, Manitoulin
Island, where my Grandmother had lived and taught school among the Odawa
people many years before. We were on our way to a family reunion of sorts, to
the Odawa homecoming Pow wow that takes place every summer the first weekend
in August. In the trunk of my car was a Pendleton blanket etched with the
symbol of the turtle. I was bringing it to give to the community in
thanksgiving for the gift of spirit they had given my family through my
Grandmother. Needless to say, it was a weekend filled with dancing, renewing
friendships, and feasting.
Poets against the war - A Rebuttal
by Frederick Glaysher
In predictable fashion The New York Times Book Review and much of the media
have chosen to support the more radical and supposedly "enlightened"
viewpoint on the tiff with The White House and Laura Bush.
Native American Medicine Men Use Inner Healing Power in Wyoming Hospital
by Shelley Schlender
When a chaplain visits a hospital patient, sometimes their interaction boosts
that patient's power to heal. The same is true when a Medicine man visits a
Native American patient. But for years, Medicine Men were not welcomed in
most U.S. hospitals and even on reservations, federal authorities used to ban
some indigenous healing ceremonies.

The past couple of weeks has been particularly rough ones and I have found it
hard to focus on what I would like to write about for Many Voices. Both
personally and in the news it seems I've been on a roller coaster of highs
and lows. It started off on a great high, some good friends welcomed their
first born into the world, then a low as a co-worker and her husband lost
their baby girl soon after she was born. There was that little snowfall we
had on the east coast. By the time it ended, we had about 25-30 inches on the
ground. Many businesses closed their doors, told employees to stay home.
Schools closed. I do not work in a field where that is possible. One way or
another 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, we are open and staffed. With duffel
bag in tow I was ready for the long haul at work. I think I finally got my
truck dug out 3 days later.
For Indians, a Time to Look Back, Look Ahead
by Jon Walker
WOUNDED KNEE - The dreams and scars of a changing world will pass in full
review this week as Native Americans meet for the 30th anniversary of the
armed occupation of Wounded Knee.

As tribal members line up at 9 a.m. Thursday for a "four directions spiritual
walk" leading to the Wounded Knee cemetery, they will celebrate gains they've
seen the past three decades in education, housing and health care.
Enviro-Rants From an All Natural Soapbox
by Jamie Lockard
People are just ticking me off. There is so much moronic monkey business in
the news lately it's got even my head spinning. Just when I think it's safe
to turn off CNN, someone else gets a bright idea and proves, once again, what
complete morons we continue to surround ourselves with. I'm running the risk
of alienated some of my readers with this article, but at this point, I
really don't care. I suppose that's why I'm writing and they aren't. I take
advantage of the 1st Amendment.

or one with a moral.
