May 22, 2010 — Muntadhar Al-Zaidi from Beirut: I expected to be killed the day I threw my shoes at Bush.
Muntadhar al-Zaidi (Arabic: منتظر الزيدي Muntaẓar az-Zaydī) was an Iraqi broadcast journalist who served as a correspondent for Iraqi-owned, Egyptian-based Al-Baghdadia TV. Al-Zaidi’s reports often focused on the plight of widows, orphans, and children in the Iraq War. On November 16, 2007, al-Zaidi was kidnapped by unknown assailants in Baghdad. He was also previously twice arrested by the United States armed forces. On December 14, 2008, al-Zaidi shouted “this is for the widows and orphans” and threw his shoes at then-US president George W. Bush during a Baghdad press conference. Al-Zaidi suffered injuries as he was taken into custody and was tortured during his initial detention.
There were calls throughout the Middle East to place the shoes in an Iraqi museum, but the shoes were later destroyed by American and Iraqi security forces. Al-Zaidi’s shoeing inspired many similar incidents of political protest around the world. On February 20, 2009, al-Zaidi received a 90-minute trial by the Central Criminal Court of Iraq. On March 12, 2009, he was sentenced to three years in prison for assaulting a foreign head of state during an official visit. On April 7 the sentence was reduced to one year from three years. He was released on 15 September 2009 for good behaviour, after serving nine months of the sentence.

The governor “intends to wipe the white historical slate clean of actual genocides, enslavements, land piracies, and all manner of crimes against darker peoples.” The truth shall not be spoken in Arizona.”
“The truth shall not be spoken in Arizona, if it is detrimental to the reputation and sensibilities of white people.”
May 21, 2010 — During the Cold War, both the United States and Russia placed tactical nuclear weapons in certain parts of Europe. It’s basically a small nuclear bomb that could demolish a major city, Russia took back to its own weapons stockpiles. However, America still has their own mini nukes out and in various parts of Europe. All this is in accordance with the new NATO mission statement but why are the weapons still there?

This is a 3 minute 19 second Radio Roxanne experimental audio piece about the one-month-old oil hemorrhage in the Gulf of Mexico, for Friday, 21 May, 2010. It’s experimental in that it’s not my standard linear journalistic narrative style, and instead is an experiment in the use of my voice as an instrument. I thought originally I would be composing a more complicated piece, with multi-tracking and music. For reasons known to my muse, the composition went in another direction…
