    Hello – I am trying to get
    Zack de la Rocha’s email address. I live in Wilmington, DE and have some ideas for him regarding converting his political ideas into reality. In case Zack or a friend of his happens to read this, my email is fritzjf@live.com……also i wanted to convey the title of a book to him – “the creature from Jekyl Island” … it is, at least to me, a fascinating book about the history of the federal reserve. parts of it cover the civil war, and the point at which Lincoln converted the war from being about just money into being “about” the end of slavery. anyway, i wanted to start a dialog with
    zack, which i think he would find extremely interesting. John fritz
