Big Scary Dreams

Abby Zimet

Hired at Texas Tech University earlier this year over the protests
of 70 professors who cited his multitude of "ethical failings," Alberto
Gonzales is teaching a political science class on the Executive Branch
rather than doing prison laundry as he should be. The brazen Gonzales
says he wants to encourage his students to aim high, clearly a subjective concept.

"Dream big but be patient," he said. "You never know when the next
George W. Bush is going to come along and give you a once in a lifetime
opportunity like he gave me."

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
