  Pesticide Use Spikes as GMO Failure Cripples Corn Belt
by Sarah Lazare
"Midwest farmers douse their fields in chemicals as insects grow resistant to Bt Corn."
  Denouncing NSA Surveillance Isn't Enough—We Need the Power to Stop It
by Norman Solomon
"At the core of the surveillance state is the hollowness of its democratic pretenses. Only with authentic democracy can we save ourselves from devastating evisceration of the First, Fourth and Fifth Amendments."
