    Palestinians Fish, Despite Israeli Ban -- In Gaza, everyone's a politician, even the weather-beaten men who make their living from the sea. On Tuesday, Abu Wassim -- a 40-year-old fisherman -- was happily loading two large sea bass into the back of his jeep. Just over six years ago, Wassim and his fellow Gaza fishermen were banned by the Israelis from fishing beyond three miles off shore. Israel has now extended their fishing zone to six miles as part of the ceasefire agreement. The fishermen say venturing into the expanded zone is hazardous, and that Israeli's have already fired warning shots at them.

    City Arts & Lectures Wendell Berry Wendell Berry is a widely celebrated writer, poet, essayist and novelist, but first and foremost, he is a farmer. An original American prose voice, Berry writes with a calm and compelling vision about our sense of kinship with the land. For over 30 years he has farmed in his native Henry County, Kentucky. Berry is the recipient of numerous awards and the author of over 50 books of fiction, non-fiction and poetry including "A Place on Earth," "The Unsettling of America," "Jayber Crow" and "The Art of the Commonplace." In his last collection of poetry, "The Mad Farmer Poems," Berry raged against the depravities of contemporary life wrought by mismanagement of natural resources and our willful ignorance of the lessons of the past.

    All Things Considered Arafat Exhumation: a Distraction? The Palestinian Authority (PA) dug up the body of its late President Yasser Arafat on Tuesday as part of an international investigation into whether he was poisoned. The investigation was launched this summer, eight years after Arafat's death, when a Swiss lab found traces of the radioactive element polonium on Arafat's personal effects. The exhumation comes at a sensitive time, as the PA is suffering from a legitimacy crisis and is being upstaged by its rival Hamas. The exhumation also distracts attention from the group's bid to upgrade its status at the U.N.
