you may have noticed something new, here...


If you have been to this site before or you're a subscriber,  you are in the right place:  The Savage Pen is now We the People.  I don't remember now what made me do it.  But, suddenly, We, the People seemed like the right name and The Savage Pen seemed old and not quite right.  I toyed with name In Your but the name is too, well, in your face.  So, We, the People, it is going to be.

I would welcome any insights, reactions and feedback on the improvements. I think they are improvements, anyway.  And I hope my readers will as well.  New artwork for the page and site title.  It took better than ten tries to get it right.  10 different versions including a piece of artwork of the U.S. Constitution.  To make it look old and like parchment.  Then searching for the right background.  I like the cosmos as a background; it seems to rise above petty politics, and take us out into the Universe to set the atmosphere for transcendent Truth and values, against which even politics finally must be measured.


So You Think You Live In A Democracy

Russ Baker is an investigative journalist, perhaps among the last of his kind, as mainstream media no longer investigates anything anymore.  Lack of public interest in real-honest-to-God journalism, added to declining readership and revenues are among the reasons.  Baker investigated the Bush family for five years to gather material for his explosive book, "Family of Secrets, The Bush Dynasty, America's Invisible Government and the Hidden History of the Last 50 Years".

This book becomes a goldmine of information to counter the lies which appear on every page of Bush's new "Autobiography."
