[BarnesAndNoble.com dead tree and Nook]
The unabridged audio version of my 1983 novel The Nagasaki Vector, brilliantly read by the great libertarian radio host Brian Wilson, is finally available for purchase.

Many feel that this is the funniest book I've written so far—at least intentionally—and features our old friend Win Bear, G. Howell Nahuatl, a sapient coyote, time traveler Bernie Gruenblum, and Georgie, the time machine who loves him.

The price: $12.99.
The place: CD Baby.

I understand that it will soon be available in iTunes, as well.

EDITORIAL MATTERS:

To all of you who "click-through" the Enterprise to buy stuff from the web-sites of our sponsors and affiliates, I send out a big THANK YOU! We do get paid a bit from that, and it does come in handy!

Y'all probably remember "Cucamonga" from the old Jack Benny radio show (unless you are a young-un). Anyway, here is the "Rancho Cucamonga Civil Disobedience Party" information and website:

To our big headline last issue "UN Small Arms Treaty Dead!" a feller going by the name "Simon Jester" (jaxi@optonline.net) remarked "For now." Well, yes, it does seem like wicked slavers never sleep.

The Dream of Dreaming
by Mylisa Fibonacci and Jim Davidson
Everyone has had a dream. Many space enthusiasts remember the work of Gerard K. O'Neill and his dream of human settlements in space. In 1969, O'Neill asked, is the surface of a planet really the right place for an expanding technological civilization? He and his students concluded that it is not. Many freedom enthusiasts have a dream of a free society, built on voluntary consent, without coercion or aggression as part of the mix.

I carry a gun -- Get over it
by Susan Callaway
I carry a gun. All the time, just about everywhere I go except to bed and the shower. Even then, a gun is within a foot or so of my hand all the time. An occasional trip into the disarmed victim zone of the post office, and my last (and I do mean last) trip to California to visit family are the extreme and very temporary exceptions.

Dear Senator, Mr. Ben Bernacke told the Senate Banking committee that the government must take action (deficit spending) to prevent an economic collapse. Did he tell Congress that every dollar of such spending would be profit for the Fed that would be hidden by the FRBNY in apparent violation of the law ??
