Marta Russell's article "The Medicaid Kill-Off" (at <http:// 
mrzine.monthlyreview.org/russell150805.html>) has been up on the  
MRZine.org homepage since yesterday.  "[S]ignificantly disabled  
protesters in Tennessee have occupied the Republican governor's  
office at the Capitol for over three weeks to stop cuts to their  
state Medicaid program (known as Tenncare). Gov. Phil Bredesen has  
responded by saying: No Food or Water" (at <http:// 
mrzine.monthlyreview.org/russell150805.html>)!  Unlike the Cindy  
Sheehan story, this hasn't received national attention, but it's an  
important story, too.
