Timothy Pilgrim -- Pacific Northwest poet (see TimothyPilgrim.org ) and associate professor emeritus of journalism (Ph.D. Washington, 1989) at Western Washington University (WWU) -- welcomes you.

All his published and accepted poems (266 of them so far) -- along with unpublished poems -- can be found at the home to his creative work: TimothyPilgrim.org .

A number of published poems are also linked at the left -- as is information from WWU journalism courses Pilgrim taught.

A 2014 book of poetry, Bellingham Poems, featuring Pilgrim along with co-authors Paul Piper and Chuck Luckmann, is available from nonprofit publisher, Flying Trout Press (dedicated to education about fragile X) -- grab a copy at the Whatcom Museum gift shop, Village Books or other bookstores. It's also available online at this url: Bellingham Poems.

Just below, Pilgrim updates information about greed in America and free press abuses by government.

Also provided are many dozen non-mainstream media links, as well as a potpourri of media criticism (with many compelling YouTube video links).

Thanks for visiting!

Government lies & propaganda:
fake journalism's assault on democracy
Potpourri of media criticism

"Growth for the sake of growth is the philosophy of the cancer cell." -- Edward Abbey

"The great thieves punish the little ones." -- Thomas Fuller

"It's time to stop letting corporate power make the most important decisions our planet faces."-- Bill McKibben

"The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to the point where it becomes stronger than the democratic state itself. That in its essence is fascism -- ownership of government by an individual, by a group or any controlling private power." -- Franklin Delano Roosevelt

U.S. war efforts in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan have cost about $4 trillion over the past decade. -- the Eisenhower Research Project

"Every minute, the United States government spends $1.2 million on the military." -- oneminuteforpeace.org
