Show Notes:
Lots of great music to get you moving on this week's Spin the Globe. It's been a rough week in world news, with violence including that at the hands of the US military against prisoners in Iraq. It's hard going into Mothers Day weekend with such heaviness, but a great article by Geov Parish ties it all together: war, peace, patriarchy, and Mother's Day. It includes the text of an 1870 plea against war and violence, which reads in part:

"Arise, then, women of this day!
Arise all women who have hearts,
Whether your baptism be that of water or of tears
Say firmly:
'We will not have great questions decided by irrelevant agencies,
Our husbands shall not come to us reeking of carnage,
For caresses and applause.
Our sons shall not be taken from us to unlearn
All that we have been able to teach them of charity, mercy and patience.
We women of one country
Will be too tender of those of another country
To allow our sons to be trained to injure theirs.' "

Read it to your mom or your family this weekend. See the full text here.

# Our cover song of the week was Zap Mama's version of "Iko Iko" - a great, energetic tune custom made for today's show.
