EUROPEAN YOUTHS CONVERGE IN MORAVIAN VILLAGE TO RESTORE JEWISH CEMETARY                In an era when so many tragic stories of hate and violence are reported among young people, a refreshing story has emerged from a Moravian village.  Students from five European countries gathered on Sunday  to tak on the task of  cleaning and refurbishing   a Jewish cemetery in the village of Miroslav,  near the South Moravian town of Znojmo. The group of students included nineteen  young Czechs, along  with fellow students from Germany, Poland, The Netherlands and Slovakia. The students   spent 40 hours each to clean up  rubble, as well as personally meet those who have been promoting Jewish cultural values, including writer Ivan Klima, Brno-based artist Wolf Spitzbart and playwright Milan Uhde. The Miroslav Jewish Cemetery has   tombstones dating  from as early as the 17th century. IMPULSE - '99 MAY HAVE BEEN A BIT, IMPULSIVE! - The newest Czech  public initiative group,  Impulse 99,  which hundreds of Czech intellectuals have allegedly  signed,  as an appeal for decency and common sense in politics,  seems to be on a collision course  after two people claimed that they,  in-fact,  never signed it. Supreme Court President Eliska Wagnerova said that while  she sympathised with the appeal against political arrogance, her public status in  the judiciary effectively made it impossible for her to sign the document. Her name, but not her signature,  was included in a  list published on the internet.  Another reported signatory,   Radio Free Europe's Yvonne Prenosilova,  says that  she only signed an   abbreviated  version of the manifesto. Ms.  Prenosilova added that her status as a  journalist,  working for a public-service broadcasting organization,  effectively precluded  her from  signing the document.   Impulse 99 is an initiative group created  to promote more  public discussion on civic and political  problems.  Its signatories believe that they are being neglected in the Czech Republic.

Art of the Impossible: Politics as Morality in Practice: Speeches & Writings, 1990-1996
From Douglas A. Sylva - The New York Times Book Review:  In one of the speeches collected in 'The Art of the Impossible,' Vaclav Havel declares that as he entered politics he feared 'the poetry was over and the prose was beginning.' . . . But throughout these eloquent speeches, . . . [he] records his efforts to retain his earlier point of view, to continue to see society as a place of mysterious possibility even as he must organize and guide it. . . . The mystical, vaguely pantheistic tone of these speeches will be unfamiliar to those accustomed to American political oratory, as will Havel's silence about particular government policies. He cares much more about what his people think and feel than how they should resolve specific political questions. The greatest attribute of these speeches is the inspiring optimism of someone who has seen the worst of humanity without losing faith in it.
