"Danae" - Gustav Klimt (1862 - 1918)

The sharp edge of a razor is difficult to pass over: thus the wise say the path to Salvation is hard.

Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 19:24

Your editor continues telling his “True Tales”, thereby letting other better informed correspondents bash Bush in “Current Events”. They are Cindy Sheehan, Elizabeth de la Vega and that wonderful anonymous Girl from Baghdad.

Stepping back into the past a bit, Isaiah Berlin tells us (in “Features”) what he and most oppressed Europeans felt about FDR during the Second World War. This, along with Elie Wiesel’s Nobel acceptance speech, will give out readers, especially the younger ones, nutritional food for thought. Jumping to the present, Gaither Stewart peppers his impressions of Buenos Aires with his personal socio-political comments on things in general.

The Science section has been renamed “Science and Philosophy”, because it seems to us that the main scientific issues are becoming more philosophical every day. First Lucien Hardy gives a primer on quantum theory. Then Konrad Rudnicki continues his series about the history of Cosmological Principles. Don Cruse bashes fundamentalist Darwinists and Rudolf Steiner considers the same subject from a more philosophical point of view.

“Fiction”: Robert Fox is back with another multicultural whodunit – or who didn’t done it. We also offer a bilingual story by the renowned Argentine writer Julio Cortázar – and Orwells’s “1984” continues.

Rudolf Steiner’s autobiography continues under “Anthroposophy”, as well as his lecture cycle entitled "The Fifth Gospel".

“Poetry” offers some more W. H. Auden work, as well as that of a new poet, Matthew Mulder. Enjoy!

You can find us under the Southern Cross constellation in the Traslasierra Valley Province of Córdoba, Argentina. Visitors always welcome. Just follow the sign that reads: La Cruz del Sur. See you next time.
