More > research is rich and multi-layered, the writing is dramatic and literary, you can take several points of view and have more freedom than with traditional journalism – or you can choose to stick to "just the facts" with a sprinkle of imagination for garnish.

What you read in the front pages of newspapers is traditional journalism in democratic nations. Reporters and editors have a written rule to deliver "just the facts, ma'am." The key element with this type of journalism is that you can be creative, but still tell the truth. It gives you the chance to be more of an artist with your writing, while still protecting the craft of journalism.< Less

More > permutations in Colombia that are contributing significantly to the erosion of the Colombian state and its democratic institutions, and implementing the anti-system objectives of their elite neo-populist sponsors; second, Hugo Chavez’s use of the New Socialism and popular militias to facilitate his populist Bolivarian dream of creating a mega-state in Latin America; and, third, al-Qaeda’s strategic and hegemonic use of political-criminal gangs to coerce substantive change in Spanish and other Western European foreign and defense policy and governance.

FRESH TROOPS By Jack Cook

The second part consists of the opening section of an early unpublished work, the second volume of my... More > prison narrative, Rags of Time: A Season In Prison (Beacon Press, 1972), written now 35 years ago. I humor myself by thinking of these pieces as fresh troops to send against the Surge, the Bush administration, and the latest war for oil. Fresh troops undeployed until now.
