Support the Greenpeace campaign for the Bhopal disaster survivors... It's 19 years since the world's worst industrial disaster in Bhopal, India. Deadly gas leaked from the poorly maintained and understaffed plant owned by Union Carbide, killing up to 20,000 people and leaving 120,000 chronically ill. For 19 years the companies responsible have done almost nothing to help. Now you can do a little something to help the survivors of the ongoing disaster and send a message to Union Carbide's new owner Dow Chemical that it should be cleaning up its toxic mess.

TSOG: The Thing That Ate the Constitution By Robert Anton Wilson Paperback: 224 pages Publisher: New Falcon Publications; (October 15, 2002) ISBN: 1561841692 Right, so I'm only a year late reviewing this. I should be ashamed... but at least I've gotten round to it. TSOG (TSarist Occupational Government) - The Thing That Ate the Constitution delivers what we've come to expect from Robert Anton Wilson (RAW)- incisive, biting satire, coupled with warm humanity and incisive humour. The recent candidate for the Governorship of California has jammed a small book full of provocative, amusing and insightful essays. I suspect... that most people do and say most of the things they do and say for exactly the same reason: they never stop to think about it. I know that sounds brutally cynical, but at least it explains the religious...
