Contents: Timetable --
Turtle Island: in which Ben White takes a bath and the turtles take the day --
The winding path: in which religion and politics have everything to do with one another --
War and peace: in which father and daughter present "incredible feats of stupidity" --
The ABCs of the WTO: in which we make alphabet soup and even try to eat it --
On getting personal and going public: in which a personal watercraft by any other name is not allowed --
Shrink to fit: in which the WTO takes to the couch, the therapist answers the questions, and the daughter wins the contest --
Sitting it out: in which the students lead the way and the police use the spray --
Do look back: in which history can be found --
A circle of jubilee: in which we all get wet and cancel the debt --
The thin place: in which the questions are the answer --
Mr. President, there's a fly in my alphabet soup: in which citizen Soriano speaks up and acts out --
It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood: in which grass roots are always greener --
No island is an island: in which the streets are filled with yearning --
Love's labor found: in which the oiler is a union girl --
Women turn out: in which nipples are a trade barrier --
The post-WTO cafe: in which there's no leader, no budget, and no donuts --
The universe in a grain of rice: in which farming is not forever --
The nature of life: in which wealth has nothing to do with money --
From books to booked: in which all things are arresting --
In treaties we trust: in which it's not a white world after all --
Getting it together: in which we all get what we want and need what we get.
Responsibility: Janet Thomas.
