Some Nice Quotations for your Reading Pleasure

"Contrary to popular belief, conventional wisdom would have one believe that it is insane to resist this, the mightiest of empires.... But what history really shows is that today's empire is tomorrow's ashes, that nothing lasts forever, and that to not resist is to acquiesce in your own oppression. The greatest form of sanity that anyone can exercise is to resist that force that is trying to repress, oppress, and fight down the human spirit."

- Mumia Abu-Jamal

"To be truly radical is to make hope possible rather than despair convincing."

-Raymond Williams

"I am weary seeing our laboring classes so wretchedly housed, fed, and clothed, while thousands of dollars are wasted every year over unsightly statues. If these great man must have outdoor memorials, let them be in the form of handsome blocks of buildings for the poor."

- Elizabeth Cady Stanton, 1880

"I would rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck."

-Emma Goldman

"If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always gotten."


"An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind."

-Mahatma Gandhi

"Possession is 9/10 of the problem."

-John Lennon

"A good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge."

-Bertrand Russell

Some News From Z

  • We have recently added October, November, December, and January Z articles to our author and topical archives, and for search.
  • Our computer/internet connection has moved to ISDN. Very inexpensive and very fast...if you need a fast connection and can't get a cable hook up where you are, you may want to consider it. Of course, ISDN is also only in some locales, but more than cable.
  • We have begun some serious planning regarding Z Radio, at last. It is still a ways off, but beginning to take some shape. We'll see...
  • So the scanner we use for reading typewritten copy and copying artwork into Z just bit the dust. You wouldn't believe -- well, actually, you probably would since you use computers -- the hassle of getting and setting up and making operational a new one. Ah well...
  • We have just finished up preparations for some Sprin Mailings to Z subscribers -- to try to increase circulation via some new premiums and to elicit some new subscribers. Of course, you might want to help by visiting the Donations and Purchases Center...
  • Z has upgraded its Desktop Publishing Software. We use a program called Ventura. It was bought a couple of years back by Corel -- who do Corel Draw, etc. Their upgrade, however, was dysfunctional for our purposes, and so was another, since. So we are now upgrading from version 5 of Ventura to Version 8. This kind of thing is very annoying and takes considerable time...you have to port over the templates, etc. And you have to learn the new program's procedures and idiocyncracies--mainly how to get around the "bugs." However, the new version has many advantages and should prove worth the effort -- we hope. The first issue created with the new program will be October, 1998.
  • Z has a new printer. ITs resolution is four times what we have been using and its speed is up by 2.5 times, the memory is quadroupled, it prints two sides, and it does huge sheets, and the thing costs $1,000 less (not even accounting for inflation) than what it is replacing sold for five years ago. Don't you just love progress?
