    With a common theme of ecological wisdom, grassroots democracy, social justice and peace and nonviolence, the Greens are organized as a political party, or movement in some form, in 95 countries on every continent.

  • Heart bypass

    This weekly feature is designed to provide a follow-up to stories which originally appeared in the Independent's news pages.
  • Gardening Daze

    No garden is ever done, not until were "done." In the meantime, I'm making new gardens, re-thinking old ones, my roots digging deeper into these soils, rocky remnants of ancient oceans.
  • IQ: The Age of Apathy
  • IQ: The Age of Apathy

    Folks, I am one of the members of the high school graduating class of 2000. Most of us who are a part of "Generation Y" were born and have lived under three presidents: Reagan, Bush and Clinton. None of us even have the satisfaction of being disappointed about having once had a fine leader standing in the front of our country and now having a putz for a president.

    The Patriot is a concept movie surprisingly similar to director Ridley Scott's Gladiator. The two movies uncomfortably meet in establishing a 21st-century breed of spectacle enhanced, historically referenced, yet impure grand-scale films trapped inside a dead-end capsule of Spielberg-infected dramatic flatness.


  • Moody Blues
  • Moody Blues

    Often, fiction about rural, blue-collar life is male-based; macho and rugged. Maureen Gibbon, in her debut novel Swimming Sweet Arrow, turns this recent tradition on its head by giving us the female point of view.
  • Blow to the Head
  • Blow to the Head

    Can we like a character who has the emotional fuse of a sociopath? Adam Berlin, in his debut novel Headlock, answers this literary question, oddly, in the affirmative.
