Tulsa Peace Fellowship

There never was a good war or a bad peace. ~Ben Franklin

In the Tulsa Peace Fellowship email post just sent through regarding the Memorial Service for Janet Hutto, someone included brief comments from a private email I had written right after finding out about the tragic loss of Janet to our lives. In my comments there was more said than these few lines, and I feel very sorry that they were used without my permission in a public forum, but also that they were lifted from a longer message.

 Never in my wiildest thinking would I ever have criticized anything about how the family responded or dealt with this very distressing event. In my comments, I was as shocked as anyone, but there was never any negative intent or feeling that something should have been done differently, or any presumption on my part at all. But I fear that my comments sound that way in this post. Please please forgive anything you might have read into those few words, as they were innocently written and never meant for public posting. I love Janet and Mike, some of the very sweetest people in the world, and it was my honor to work with Janet for good. Thank you.

Tax Dollars Spent on Military versus Peace Tax Initiative

Taxpayers can take stock of how the federal government spent their 2007 income tax dollars: over 42 percent went towards military spending, while education received just over 4 percent. The National Priorities Project shows how the average Tulsan family is diverting $360 of their 2007 income tax dollars to buy military hardware, military services, military advertising, military recruiters, and to pay down war debt accumulated by the military during past wars. The campaign for a Peace Tax in lieu of War Taxes is a nationwide campaign.
