Aug. 9 UPDATE: Orange goo identified as billions of microscopic eggs. Mystery as to why they surfaced still unsolved.
Anchorage – Leona Baldwin’s husband saw it first, and she got on the marine radio to alert others in the remote Alaska village of Kivalina that a strange orange goo was sitting on top of the town’s harbor.

In a speech last week supporting ‘azadi’ — or freedom — for the occupied people of Kashmir, Arundhati Roy won the ire of right wing extremists who started a petition to have her arrested on charges of sedition. Even moderates are shocked by her support of secession. I sit on an Indian listserve, and some of the comments against her were vicious, with most people supporting prison for this freedom-loving, earth-loving, prolific writer and activist.
Sedition is being openly discussed in several states in the US. Bill Kaufman’s new book, Bye Bye, Miss American Empire addresses the topic head on (Chelsea Green, 2010).
