Jim Hightower, a former Texas Agricultural Commissioner, was a speaker at the AHA conference in Houston when I was AHA president, and that’s where we got acquainted over a beer at the hotel. For 17 years he has been putting out the monthly Hightower Lowdown, an inexpensive ($15 per year) 4-page progressive newsletter that is superb.
The current issue is devoted to the importance of High Speed Rail, something at which the US lags well behind Japan and western Europe. I highly recommend it.
Get a sample copy by sending a stamped self-addressed envelope to The Hightower Lowdown, Box 3109, Langhorne, PA 19047.
BTW, if you are not familiar with Voice of Reason, the quarterly journal of Americans for Religious Liberty, check out our web site – arlinc.org – where you will find 34 years of incisive writing on issues long of interest to Humanists, freethinkers and anyone who cares about church-state separation. VOR is only $25 per year.
