Resistance to Tyranny
by L. Neil Smith
The news last week, to quote Walter Cronkite, was "filled with those

Government is Fattening
by William Stone, III
On April 8, 2003, as was his daily habit, Dr. Robert C. Atkins
walked from his New York City home to his office, a distance of
about one mile. At approximately 7:30 a.m. he fell and hit his head,
suffering severe trauma. One of Dr. Akins' colleagues at The Atkins
Center for Complementary Medicine, arriving at work at the same time,
was able to rush Dr. Atkins to the hospital within minutes. It was
determined that Dr. Atkins had suffered a subdural hematoma and that
surgery was required to remove the blood clot from his brain. He
survived for several days but eventually succumbed to complications
on April 17. Dr. Atkins was 72.

behavior between two consenting adults - particularly gay and
lesbian couples. In this case, the debate focuses on whether or not
the State of Texas should intervene in the peaceful, consenting
sexual practices between same-sex couples.

The Great Lie
by Wendy McElroy
"Woman as victim" is one of the Great Lies of our time. Those who
care about women's welfare should correct the damage done by this
lie because, today more than ever, women need to acknowledge their
power and take control of their lives. Nothing has felt secure since 9-11.
