LaRouche PAC Reports: Bush Sings His Swan-Song  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

Lyndon LaRouche issued this statement on Nov. 9. “Impeach that worse-than-useless Bush-Cheney pair while we still have a nation which exists to forgive them for what they have done,” he writes. “Let them go kindly; let them go humanely, but ‘humanely’ means that they must go, and that quickly, for the sake of our nation, and also for all humanity, too. Those who lack the political guts for that great send-off should not be treated as leaders inside the U.S.A.”

Anathema of Venice: Lorenzo Da Ponte, Mozart’s ‘American’ Librettist  

by Susan W. Bowen

A review of The Librettist of Venice; The Remarkable Life of Lorenzo Da Ponte; Mozart’s Poet, Casanova’s Friend, and Italian Opera’s Impresario in America, by Rodney Bolt. In examining what Bolt’s book doesn’t say, the reviewer concludes that “Any truly authentic biography of this Classical scholar, arch-enemy of sophistry, and indefatigable promoter of creativity in science and art, must needs bring to light that truth which Venice, even today, would wish to suppress: that Lorenzo Da Ponte (1749-1838), like Mozart (1756-91), was a product of, and also a champion of the American Revolution and the Renaissance idea of man that it represented.”

The first sentence on page 56 should have read, “The ordinary hydrogen nucleus has one proton; deuterium has one proton plus one neutron in its nucleus, and tritium has one proton plus two neutrons.”
