Here are some of the highlights from our latest issue:

WORLD CON -- Stop these corporate crooks
Not long ago, Deborah Day figured that she had a secure job. Now she worries how she'll support her 7-year-old son. Day and 17,000 other WorldCom workers were laid off because WorldCom executives got caught committing a massive bookkeeping fraud.

THE FEDS THREATENS DOCKWORKERS
Homeland security chief Tom Ridge is making it clear what he means by "security." With the International Longshore and Warehouse Union's contract at ports on the West Coast due to expire, Ridge personally pressured the union not to "disrupt trade."

ASSAULT ON THE ENVIRONMENT
The Toxic Texan has taken an ax to environmental regulations and directed his administration to give every advantage to corporate polluters. Socialist Worker reports on Bush's assault--and talks to Monthly Review coeditor John Bellamy Foster about why capitalism can't solve the environmental crisis.

THE PENTAGON'S LATEST DEADLY MISTAKE
"There are no Taliban or al-Qaeda or Arabs here. These people were all civilians, women and children." That's what a resident of the village of Abdul Saboor in Afghanistan told BBC News after the U.S. military's latest--and deadliest--blunder.

FREDERICK DOUGLASS: WHAT TO THE SLAVE IS THE FOURTH OF JULY?
Frederick Douglass was born a slave in Maryland in 1818 and escaped in 1838, becoming one of the best-known leaders of the abolitionist movement. As an antidote to flag-waving patriotism of July 4, SW reprints an 1852 speech by Douglass on the subject of American "democracy."
