To:     Robert Keeley

Dear Robert,


I wanted to let you know that I will be delivering the Democratic
response to the President's weekly radio address this Saturday at
11:06am. I am honored to have been chosen for this national address,
but it would not have happened without your generous and enthusiastic
support.


You can listen to the address on NPR, CBS, and other stations or watch
it on CSPAN or CNN. The attached Philadelphia Inquirer article has
more detailed information.


Warmly,

Joe



Many eyes (and ears) on Sestak radio talk

Tomorrow, Rep. Weldon's rival will give the Democratic response to
Bush's address. It may help the retired admiral raise funds and get
exposure.

By Todd Mason

The political novice who seemingly came from nowhere to mount a
serious challenge against U.S. Rep. Curt Weldon (R., Pa.) is
delivering the Democratic response to President Bush's weekly radio
address tomorrow.

Joe Sestak, a retired three-star admiral who commanded a battle group
during the war in Afghanistan, is expected to criticize the war in
Iraq as a costly diversion in the country's efforts to fight
terrorism.

Uri Avnery on the Second Lebanon War--8/19/06

Uri Avnery
19.8.06

               The 155th Victim

WITH A few words, a Lebanese army officer destroyed, the day before
yesterday, the illusion that Israel had achieved anything in this war.

At a televised Lebanese army parade that was also broadcast on Israeli
TV , the officer read a prepared text to his assembled troops, who were
about to be deployed along the Lebanese-Israeli border.

This is what he said in Arabic: "Today, in the name of the comprehensive
will of the people, you are preparing to be deployed on the soil of the
wounded South, side by side with the forces of your Resistance and your
people, which have amazed the world with their steadfastness and blown
to pieces the reputation of the army about which it has been said that
it is invincible."
