Renowned magician Harry Houdini is rising from the grave, 81 years after his untimely death at age 52.

He’s not doing so voluntarily, though, despite his promise to contact his loved ones from The Great Beyoooooond.

It seems that members of his family now believe he died, not as the result of peritonitis resulting from a ruptured appendix as previously believed, but rather as the result of murder most foul carried out by Spiritualists who were angry that he had exposed their fraud.

A book about Houdini’s life published last year, which included a somewhat threatening letter written by Spiritualist proponent and Sherlock Holmes author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, suggests that the magician was possibly poisoned with arsenic. No autopsy was ever performed but, if true, it is possible that arsenic may be detectable even now.

Next Prez Blog: Kubby still leading Libertarian candidates

“Steve Kubby (steady) — appears best positioned among the leading LP candidates to continue building momentum for his campaign if Ron Paul draws donations and volunteers away from the party for his Republican primary bid. …”

This is an MLK day Message from Steve Kubby, Libertarian for President with markup links by me, paulie cannoli.

FREE AT LAST?

I wonder what Martin Luther King, Jr., would think of the America we live in — how he’d feel had he and his assassin not met on that fateful April morning and if instead he had awakened this morning to his 78th birthday.

I wonder what he’d have to say about a country that treats one in thirty of its own citizens as criminals.

I wonder how he’d characterize a country that imprisons more of its own people than any other nation on earth.

I wander what he’d call a country that incarcerates one in four of
its young black males
.

I wonder if he could tolerate a country that differentiates between
“white people’s cocaine” and “black people’s cocaine” in its sentencing laws.

I wonder if Dr. King would have the moral strength to stick to his philosophy of non-violence in this era of militarized police, “no-
knock” raids, death sentences for self-defense, and the cold-blooded murder of elderly black women by their alleged protectors.

I wonder if Dr. King would even recognize the America we live in today.

I don’t think he would. I think he’d still be leading marches and working for justice — demanding that America make good on what he called the “architects of our republic[‘s] … promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. … a promise that all men
would be guaranteed the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

Dr. King is not often described as a “libertarian” when his work for racial equality is remembered — and maybe there are other, better words to describe his ideas. Certainly the movemement he led for so many years has sometimes struck out in directions he’d likely not
have supported. But, just as clearly, he understood the importance of freedom. On this, his birthday, I like to take a few minutes to remember the closing words of his famous 1963 speech in Washington:

“When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to
join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, ‘Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!'”

I hope that you’ll spend a few moments pondering those words with me — and the coming years working with me to renew them and to make them real.

Let freedom grow!
Steve Kubby
Libertarian for President

The new Kubby 2008 website is up, thanks to Knappster.

http://www.kubby2008.com

The previous Kubby.com was not specifically about the campaign, rather, it was a combination of everything Steve Kubby has done in the last decade or so of his life.

This one is more focused, and more modern looking, but does not have a whole ton of content yet – that’s coming soon, though.

As you can see in the staff directory, the Cannoli is now Assistant National Volunteer Coordinator of Kubby for President 2008.

At the moment, that means I’m helping set up
google groups for Kubby supporters in every state
. We have most of them done, but it will probably take a day or two more to finish. If anyone wants to help, go to the staff directory link and give Knappster, Ben Todd and myself a holler.

Knapp tells me he is working on producing radio commercials with the Sloan Ranger, a radio personality in the STL.
We’ll also probably be making TV commercial with my friend Doug Scribner, who made the pollie award winning Kubby for Governor TV commercials in 1998.

We’ll be needing some help with the print materials. This is a very rough beta which we already discussed earlier on this site.

Business/Playing Cards

There’s also the Kubby Blog and
myspace page.

As of yesterday, the Beyonce Viral Video
which includes Kubby was at 32,000 views.

Oh yeah, and the discussion at my last Kubby in the News update I posted is still going strong, with the most comments of any topic post on Last Free Voice so far.

Eric Dondero asks over at Third Party Watch Any press for Kubby or Phillies?

Bush vs. Beyonce Video Includes Kubby

Steve Kubby appears briefly in this music video parody of Beyonce’s #1 single “Irreplaceable,” and it examines the political overtones in her lyrics. With George W. Bush’s approval ratings at an all-time low and Beyonce’s song at the top of the Billboard charts, the video has become a smash hit on YouTube, scoring over 7,500 hits in its first 3 days on the Internet.
Of course it’s been out a lot longer now.
