This week in New World Notes, radio program #75, August 4 & 7:
It's a Capitalist's dream come true! Get rid of those pesky union organizers with your own death squad! Coca-Cola's bottlers in Colombia have been doing this for years. Eat your heart out, Wal-Mart!
Here's the story in prose (by The Guardian's Julian Borger) and song (by David Rovics).

If you'd rather die more slowly, try drinking a whole lot of Diet Coke--or consuming any other food sweetened with aspartame (NutraSweet). James Corbett explains why this chemical is the worst food additive since DDT--and how it managed to get approved by the FDA.

Fun Fact:
Q: What do the introduction of aspartame and the invasion of Iraq have in common?
A: Donald Rumsfeld! (Hear the show to learn how.)
Song played: David Rovics, "Drink of the Death Squads"

Coming soon (dates of WWUH Tuesday broadcast shown):
  • August 11 & 18 --The Thinking (Wo)Man's Guide to 9-11 (2 parts)
