A Rabbi, RoundUp, and the All-American Girl

  • Israeli Rabbi Arik Ascherman of Rabbis for Human Rights, who was arrested this spring for blocking a bulldozer that was in the act of demolishing a Palestinian home in the West Bank.
    • Andy Davis, who called New Hampshire Public Radio’s morning garden show to ask the guest horticulturist’s opinion on the U.S. government use of "RoundUp" herbicide for coca eradication in Colombia. RoundUp is controversial, the gardener agreed. Her advice? "The best way to deal with troublesome weeds is by covering them with black plastic or pulling them out by the roots."
    • Danielle Shimotakahara, a 13-year-old United Methodist from Oregon, for her "Cool-No-Violence Peace Project" campaign, which urges public video-game owners to ensure that children under 18 do not play games depicting people being shot, mutilated, or dismembered. She started her campaign in response to the shootings at Columbine.
