Action Alert
Department of Peace Opposed in Berkeley Op-Ed

An Op-Ed in the Berkeley Daily Planet opposing the DOP was written by 
Jonathan Wornick.  After I introduced the resolution to the Berkeley Peace and 
Justice Commission, a Commission I served on for three years, Jonathan become its 
chief opponent.  He was the lone P&J commissioner opposed to the resolution. and 
said at the May meeting, "We have a Department of Peace. It's called the 
State Department."  He later added that the Commission should stop this initiative 
'hear and now."'

When the Commission failed to support it because it didn't get enough votes 
because of absent members, we took it directly to the City Council where it 
passed.  The Commission was criticized by some city council members for failing 
to support it.

Please respond to Wornick's outrageous comments by sending an email to the 
Daily Planet at
You can write to the P&J Commissioners by sending an email to its secretary 
Manuel Hector at
You can also write or call Berkeley City Councilmembers, especially to 
Councilmember Wozniak who voted against our DOP Resolution and appointed Jonathan 
Wornick to the P&J Commission   
A list of Councilmembers & Commissioners and full details on this issue & the 
Op-Ed article are posted at">

Quotation of the Week
"A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. 
Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider 
god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against 
him, believing that he has the gods on his side."  Aristotle

Book of the Month
On the Wings of Self-Esteem by Dr. Louise Hart  Please order this book at">   

An elegant little book about self-esteem: how it is lost, how to regain it, 
and how to keep it. While much of what Dr. Hart says feels often 
"common-sensical", & the analogy of the emergence of the butterfly seems simple & cliche, 
everything she has to say is also very valid. The way in which it was presented 
was accessible without seeming condescending or too simple.">

"Compiles the best information available on self-worth and wellness. If 
everyone read this book and did the exercises, half the pain and suffering in the 
world would disappear."  -- Jack Canfield
