JEFE
CRUISING THE MURKY, SERPENTINE CANALS OF AMSTERDAM ON A SUNNY DAY IN MAY with old friends and new, smoking some wafer-thin bubble hash, it struck me: We need to declare Amsterdam the High Times World Headquarters. The pro-cannabis movement is global, and Amsterdam is the vanguard.

I am by no means a man-hating feminist determined to overthrow the patriarchy with lyricism or cookie-cutter Christmas ornaments. Powerful, independent women have been masked in our society of Rich Whites, never allowed to flourish and proliferate ("The High Times Interview with Ani DiFranco," May/June '04 HT).

Dear high Times, RECENTLY IN NORTH CAROLINA, A MAN'S pit bulls tore his 8-year-old son apart in his own front yard. Of course, the guy didn't know it was happening. He was inside, maybe getting high or making a sandwich or watching TV. I'm not going to rant about male pain again, but God damn, brother—your dogs attack and kill your boy and the mailman chases the dogs off and you, the father, come out, and all you can do is tell the mailman to get the hell off your property?

Detroit
TO EFFECT A CHANGE OF DIRECTION IN the perilous course upon which our sorry nation is now embarked may seem a difficult—even hopeless—task. The problem is so vast that it's hard to know just where to begin. But mass movements sprout from the efforts of singular individuals or isolated handfuls of people who come together to make social change when they can no longer stand the way things are.

As Neo, the online hacker turned savior of humanity in the Matrix movies, Keanu Reeves projects the chilled charisma of a digitally animated James Dean. Interrogated by cops he wrongly assumes to be ordinary (they are, in fact, computer-generated supercops), he rebuffs their sell-out offer with a cool that oniy exists in the movies—or perhaps in the daydreams of a video gamer.

MARTIN FINNEDAL
Christiana, a hippie-punk refuge in Copenhagen, Denmark, and also the only self-governing autonomous zone in the European Union, is under attack by a government hungry for its prime real estate. Internationally famous for "Pusher Street," where marijuana, hashish and psilocybin mushrooms are sold in an open market, Christiana has recently been targeted by the new rightwing government in Denmark, which has promised to "normalize" the area secured by squatters in 1971.

Long known as the finest cigar brand in the world, Cohiba is the premium choice for aficionados, including Cuban President Fidel Castro, who has made Cohibas his signature smoke. Due to the US embargo on Cuban goods, however, Americans eager to join El Presidente have had to make due with "Cohibas" rolled from Dominican tobacco leaf and produced not by Cubatabaco, the Cuban cigar company that makes the Cohiba brand, but by an unrelated American competitor.

DIWANIYA, Iraq, Dec. 4—The place where Marine Lance Cpl. Jesus A. Suarez was killed is a desolate, muddy stretch of land—the earth still churned from the heavy military machinery that arrived here months ago, before moving on to Baghdad. It looks as though something should be growing here, but nothing does.

With approximately 4,300 youthful offenders between the ages of 12 and 25 housed in state correctional facilities, institutions and camps, the CYA is one of the largest youth corrections agencies in the nation.

The most extraordinary unintended achievement of the Bush administration has been its ability to unite the fractured political left with libertarians and the unaligned. There are scores of books detailing both Dubya's abuses of power and recommendations for regime change, and thanks to fierce, inspired writing and simple, reader-friendly formats, 50 Reasons Not to Vote for Bush (Feral House) and How to Get Stupid White Men Out of Office (Soft Skull Press) are among the best.

Village Voice staffer Jennifer Gonnerman's Life on the Outside, from Farrar, Straus & Giroux, is a riveting tale of how America's prison-industrial complex sets up people of color, churns them through the system, and spits them lifelessly back on the streets—if they're lucky to make it through the concrete and barbed wire at all.

Having established themselves with their first two releases, 2000's The Platform and 2001's Expansion Team, LA's Dilated Peoples expand the breadth of their sound and lyricism on their latest album, Neighborhood Watch (Capitol). Street rappers raised on battle rhymes and toe-to-toe standoffs, Evidence and Rakaa trace their rise from the underground to the cusp of the mainstream, checking their roots while sustaining a tighter thematic focus than the rap buckshot that flew on their earlier albums.

The Republican Rebel is a friend of mine. This guy is around 30 years old, works in finance for a major Wall Street firm, wears a suit to High Times parties and is a total individual.

After Seattle, power did what you'd expect: it clamped down. At various economic meetings since that time, international, federal, state and city law enforcement have teamed to quash dissent. Yes, the Bush supporters have the right to drape themselves in the flag as they gut everything from Head Start to Social Security, but the First Amendment gives us the right to call them hypocrites in a manner which they can hear and understand.
