  I could a tale unfold whose lightest word
Would harrow up thy soul, freeze thy young blood,
Make thy two eyes, like stars, start from their spheres,
Thy knotted and combined locks to part
And each particular hair to stand on end,
Like quills upon the fretful porpentine
                   -- Wm. Shakspeare in Hamlet

THE CHARLES SMITH BLOG
Harold Levy, author of The Charles Smith Blog, tells us: I recently retired from the Toronto Star where I have been reporting on Dr. Charles Randal Smith - a former pediatric pathologist at the Hospital for Sick Children - for the past six years. I intend, through this blog, to periodically report developments relating to Dr. Smith in the context of the on-going public inquiry, the on-going independent probe of cases he worked on between 1981 and 1991, and cases which have been launched, or will be launched in the civil courts.  I am currently researching a book on Dr. Smith and would appreciate hearing from anyone who can provide me with useful information.

What do you get when you take one ambitious prosecutor, four cold cases, a couple of cooperative snitches and four defendants with compelling innocence claims?  You get three death sentences and one life without parole.

Click the poster to view trailers and order the video.
6-time Oscar nominated Hollywood producer Aaron Russo (The Rose and Trading Places) has released his latest film, America: Freedom to Fascism.  After a successful run in the theaters the film is now available on DVD.  This film tackles some of the most controversial topics of our generation:
  • The encroachment of our civil liberties via the Patriot Act
  • The erosion of our national sovereignty by joining the North American Union
  • The May 2008 citizen compliance deadline of the REAL ID ACT
  • Required implantation of Americans with GPS trackable microchips
  • Paperless voting
  • The IRS tax code
Aaron's film offers hope and solutions despite the burdens these topics bare.
