Oona O'Neill and
From the Eugene O'Neill Foundation
Site "Rare photos of Oona O'Neill
have been donated to the Foundation by Mary Morris Lawrence, a
former photographer for the New York newspaper, PM (now defunct),
who now lives in Oakland. . . . Mary produced a picture story
about William Saroyan and the colorful street people he was cultivating
around New York City in the summer of 1942. Saroyan was a great
admirer of Eugene O'Neill and when he heard Mary knew Oona, he
asked her to arrange a meeting. Mary said, 'In no time he had
persuaded her to be in Across The Board on Tomorrow Morning, one
of three one-act plays he was about to present on Broadway.' Mary
attended rehearsals, taking many shots like the one she has donated.
It shows Saroyan playing hat-toss for relaxation in the basement
of the Belasco Theatre, with Oona as the target, and poet Samuel
Bodenheim, a Greenwich Village character looking on. Oona and
her friend Carol Marcus left for Hollywood soon after the play,
and in the following year Oona married Charlie Chaplin. Mary saw
the Chaplins often at parties when she moved to Hollywood in 1945.
. . . Mrs. Lawrence is the only one with these photos as the negatives
were lost when the paper collapsed."
I hope I had something to
do with this donation. I think I made Mary aware of the importance
of these photos. The one of Oona O'Neill and William Saroyan and
more can be seen on Mostly Mary

"SCE Announces Agreements for 726 MW of
Solar Power" is
a news release at energyonline.com. "Southern California
Edison (SCE) announced yesterday that it executed two power purchase
agreements (PPAs) with Solar Millennium for the output from two,
242-MW solar-thermal stations, with an option to double the capacity
of one station.
The locations for the planned
solar power stations are in southeastern California, near the
towns of Blythe and Ridgecrest. The stations are scheduled to
commence operations in 2013 and 2014.
Solar Millennium, LLC, Berkeley,
a subsidiary of Solar Millennium, is to develop the projects that
employ a parabolic trough design. Long, parabolic mirrors reflect
sunlight onto a tube, where the concentrated solar energy heats
a working fluid that in turn is used to create superheated steam.
The steam is used in a traditional steam turbine - generator set
for power production.
Solar Millennium stated that
construction may begin by the end of of next year, given timely
approval of permit applications and other regulatory approval."

"A global flu pandemic

Problem is, the mildest pandemics of the 20th century killed at
least a million people worldwide, and old-fashioned seasonal flu
strikes every nation yearly, killing an estimated 250,000 to 500,000.
But only 144 people had succumbed to H1N1 swine flu when the WHO
declared its pandemic -- far less than seasonal flu's daily toll.
Further, in Mexico, where the outbreak began and where it has
been the most severe, cases had already peaked.
You see, the pandemic the
WHO had been warning of was actually H5N1 avian flu."

Post co-founder Arianna Huffington told an audience Saturday gathered
for the 'Craigslist Foundation Boot Camp.'
'We are living powerful lies.
We need to wake up,' she warned at the start of the program held
at UC Berkeley. In the current crisis, it is not enough to 'put
our fingers in the dike' or rely on government policies, she said.
When Huffington, the independently
wealthy Greek-born ex-wife of a former Southern California congressman,
advocated an "explosion" of giving, volunteering and
service, she had a receptive audience - each of whom paid $75
for the all-day annual event so they could learn how to get involved

filled Zellerbach Hall nodded their heads and smiled when the
former California gubernatorial candidate said the definition

values and priorities.

no end to what we can do.'
Her message matched the theme
of this year's boot camp - 'Connect. Inspire. Act ' - which echoed
President Barack Obama's recent call to service. The event, founded
in 2004, aims to match potential volunteers with guidance and
resources to fulfill their goals through fertile networking

Unforgettable Encounter with Khansahib
first, unforgettable encounter with Khansahib, thirty years ago,
deep in Beatletime, came as something of a shock. A little knowledge,
gained from the kind of callow record listening one indulged in
then, very definitely did not go a long way. I remember the hair-raising
way the tuning of the instruments metamorphosed into music as
the alap began, and the amusement of the three musicians
as the noisy crowd, seemingly all at once, felt the random sounds
coalesce into raga, fell silent, settling in for the ride, all
attention and wonderment. We had come ready to catch a few of
those slinky shrutis, to hear the cool, clangy sounds we knew
from records, to feel the beat, to let our heads wander off for
a while to yogiland. Instead we were carried off on a trip to
the other side. Just like Beethoven.
hour or so later, after the first evening raga, we stood outside
in the Seattle mist, unable to light our cigarettes for trembling
after many years and many more encounters just as powerful and
moving as that first one, we return to consider the records, which
in due course have acquired a deepened significance of their own.
again to Khansahib's great series on Connoisseur Society is to
marvel at the sheer beauty of the playing and of the recordings
themselves. Surely these are among the best examples of artist
and recording coming together in such accord, with so much personal
force and genius caught in the sound, that disbelief suspends
itself without a protest. This was the series that culminated
in the fabulous "Forty-minute Raga" and "Eighty-minute
Raga" disqs which purported to give the listener the fullest
experience of Khansahib's art available on records. And so they
did, not just in the sense of a fully-developed musical exposition,
but also of a sense of a full revelation of a real-time performance
much like the ones we heard in those fortunate concert halls,
where it was possible to partake in the feeling of intense, abiding
mutuality and empathy that seemed to flow from the musicians to
this is not to dismiss the wonderful raga records of shorter duration,
where what we are given to hear is not the same as the arguably
'real' performances, and not just in the dimension of duration.
Typically, these records seem to distill the alap to a
length that only allows for a kind of schematic representation
of the raga, with virtually none of the extended meditative, rasa-setting
exposition and exploration we would expect in a full performance.
the gat sections seem less elaborated, less grandly constructed,
than what concerts have taught us is possible. But listening again,
these twenty-minute ragas are still sublimely beautiful, like
every one of them brings to mind the extraordinary aura we experienced
in those concerts, the absolute conviction that the carpet was
hovering three feet above the stage . .

The following is a letter
sent by Senator Loni Hancock on Tuesday to Constituents.
June 23, 2009
I am writing to update you
on the state budget crisis. We have reached a critical point and
your participation is essential.
This week, I will join with
other Senate Democrats in proposing a budget that drastically
cuts state spending while still protecting those most in need.
It will continue to invest in programs vital to California's future
While this budget avoids
the Governor's draconian cuts, make no mistake: This is not a
budget to be celebrated. It is a painful but necessary compromise.
It cuts spending by more than $11 billion, taking us back to 2005
levels. It adopts more than 90% of the Governor's radical solutions.
What it does not do is demolish the safety net for millions of
Californians. I do not believe it is necessary to balance the
budget on the backs of the poorest and most vulnerable among us,
as the Governor is demanding. That I will not support. It is a
moral issue as well as an economic one.
The main difference between
us and the Governor is that we propose $2 billion in fair, specific
and targeted industry tax increases. The tax on tobacco products
will go up. An oil severance tax will be established. California
remains the only state in the nation not taxing oil produced within
This proposal means rejecting
the Governor's plans to:
· Force the firing
of hundreds of police and fire fighters by taking money from local
· Do away with college grants for up to 100,000 qualified
· Eliminate health care for almost 1 million needy kids
· Cut off assistance for 587,000 poor families
· Take away support services for 400,000 aged, blind and
· Shut down the state park system
A just-released UCLA Anderson
forecast concludes that more aggressive budget cuts like
those the Governor is proposing -- will throw tens of thousands
of additional people out of work and will simply add to the state's
economic woes. Unfortunately, the Governor has not responded to
this important new study.
As the state and national
economies continue to decline, we are all being forced to make
sacrifices. Those of us in the Legislature should not be immune
from making sacrifices as well. My staff and I will be taking
pay cuts, our medical benefits will be reduced, and I am supporting
major cutbacks in Senate operating costs. We are all in this together.
The Legislature is expected
to vote on our budget package this week. It will then go to the
Governor. I urge you to ask him to sign it. His phone number is
916-445-2841. His fax number is 916-558-3160. You can e-mail him
through his website: http://gov.ca.gov/interact#contact.
I appreciate hearing your
thoughts in these difficult times, so please do not hesitate to
