Dear Thinkers,
Next Wednesday is Earth Day. I encourage you to become enlightened and
involved by reading two books which may be ordered at your favorite book

The first, is entitled: _Toxic Sludge is Good for You...Lies, Damn Lies,
and the Public Relations Industry_ by John C. Stauber and Sheldon
(under $15 Common Courage Press, 1 Red Barn Rd., Monroe, ME 04951)

The second is entitled _Toxic Deception: How the Chemical Industry
Manipulates Science, Bends the Law, and Endangers Your Health._ Author
Dan Fagan was a Pulitzer finalist in 1994 for his articles documenting
links between pesticides and breast cancer. Co-author, Marianne Lavelle,
won the Polk Award and six other national prizes for her writings; she
is also a writer for the National Law Journal. The book is under $25.
Because of a review in the New York Times, the EPA is investigating
actions taken.

Each year over $1 billion is spent brainwashing the American public.
It's time to dust the PR cob webs from your brain and learn to think,
and weigh the consequences of your actions, once again. Protecting life
on Earth depends upon thinking rather than brainwashed citizens. If you
cannot read these books, then change your mind, are you sure you still
have a mind to change?
