Dear Kim, Kenneth and Michael,

oh yess.. , i'm fond of conspiracy theories, and of puzzles and chess,
and of Heidegger and Wittgenstein, of gardens and agoras .....

but sorry i've been a bit careless with the editing of the message,
the introductionary lines before the letter were part of the forward
- and not mine -

nevertheless though, i've come under the impression lately that
something rotten was (is ?) going on in Genoa, i've followed the
event from behind the paper, TV and PC, so all my knowledge
is 'second hand', but two things are quite clear for me:

- the police used brutal offensive tactics and extreme violence
- open media coverage was/is deliberately made impossible

here are some URL's to backcheck, see the recent archives on:
http://www.nettime.org/ and http://csf.colorado.edu/mail/wsn/

to say, as Kim does, that "The Italian police was very polite at that
occassion, and I doubt that the Genoese police are much different
from that..." or, as Michael, that "The police in Bologna were
harmless." proofs nothing to me about the actual events in Genoa,
what really happened on the streets can only be obtained via
eyewitness accounts, audio and video footages etc. --- and let's
hope that all will come to surface ;-(

ahh, Kenneth, what is the task of the thinker, is it only to think,
but not also to observe, to amaze and . . . . . to err ?

yours,
jan
