Ray Suarez Latest Book: The Holy Vote

Ray firmando un autografo para Alex
NewsHour Senior Correspondent Ray Suarez discussing his latest book The Holy Vote: The Politics of Faith In America on October 20th at 7pm in the Downtown Salt Lake City Library Auditorium.“We can't get American religion out of politics, or politics out of religion. It's too late for that. It would be like trying to get the sugar out of a cup of coffee. But finding a way these two behemoth institutions in American life can coexist, while respecting the convictions of believers and protecting the rights of nonbelievers and those who disagree, is the riddle we must solve.” RS.

EE.UU. llegó a 300 millones de habitantes

Estados Unidos tiene ahora 300 millones de habitantes, según nuevos cálculos estadísticos. El reporte del Instituto de Censo está basado en la media de un nacimiento cada siete segundos y una muerte cada 13 segundos, y tiene en cuenta las naturalizaciones, calculando un nuevo ciudadano estadounidense cada 11 segundos. Los cómputos no tienen en cuenta a los inmigrantes clandestinos, que según las fuentes, oscilan entre 12 millones y 25 millones. Si se considera esa inmigración clandestina, la cifra de 300 millones de habitantes en Estados Unidos fue superada desde hace ya tiempo.

Lucybell en SLC, Oct.12-2006

“Since the debut of their first album in 1995, Lucybell has been a leader of the Rock en Espanol movement. Their unique but widely appealing sound has made Lucybell a household name in their native Chile and a important contributor to the genre abroad.With a sound that is a balanced blend of electronic, acoustic and rock guitar music, Lucybell has been compared to Blur, Catherine Wheel and Radiohead. Lucybell is now the best-selling rock band in Chile. With six gold records and a large and faithful fan base, this trio is poised to take on the world”.

THE TORTURE DEBATE, Part II - Letter from Ariel Dorfman

Dear friends who contacted me regarding the U.S. position on torture:
I have been overwhelmed by the number of you who have expressed your horror and sadness that the United States would abandon its founding principles of presumed innocence and habeus corpus, as well as its support for the Geneva Conventions and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and make a policy of torturing human beings in the name of security and freedom. It shows that there are many among us -- I would hope a majority -- who believe we are still a nation of laws, with respect for justice and an abhorrence of the barbaric practices used by authoritarian regimes and criminals.
A number of you responded asking what can be done to stop our country from engaging in these practices.
The Torture Abolition and Survivors Support Coalition International (TASSC) is a coalition of torture survivors (of every ideological sign, by the way) who are dedicated to work toward the abolition of the use of torture and ill treatment currently practiced by more that 150 governments (it's dreadful to realize that we are now being added to the list!). If you feel as strongly as I do about a zero tolerance for torture being used as a "tool" by our government, I urge you to support their crucial work and continue to speak out, writing letters to editors, to your representatives in Congress, and the President.
I have written to Sister Dianna Ortiz, who heads TASSC in Washington, D.C., and she has suggested that you could contact them about any help you might be willing to provide to them.
Their website is:
Or you can write to:

Cordially, and in solidarity,
Ariel Dorfman
