Review: Burma VJ

Showcases the heroism of ordinary Burmese people
Unlike totalitarian states with cult-of-personality frontmen, Burma's government is a nameless, faceless junta.

Battling Scientology

Anonymous's Gregg Housh is committed to bringing down the Church of Scientology. Is he a gadfly or a goon?
In a world wracked with uncertainty, there is at least one thing you can bet on: pick a fight with the Church of Scientology, and its leaders will fight back — always with vigor, often with a vengeance, and sometimes with litigation that can be long and costly.

Muzzle mania

Letters to the Boston editor, July 11, 2008
