The Beast
by Russmo



The motto for this issue comes from "Set Thine House In Order", by Jonathan David Morris Just one of the many entertaining, informative, or incendiary articles in this issue of TLE.

This issue's Thank You! goes out to A.W. for the generous donation to the "keep TLE going fund". And speaking of those donations, you (yes, you!) are invited to make your very own donation to that fund. TANSTAAFL! Read all about how at:


Yes, I get tired of this constant begging, but not as tired as I would get of freezing in the dark. Another way to donate, of course, is to buy stuff from Amazon.com and/or Laissez-Faire Books using one of our links.

Letter of Appreciation
by L. Neil Smith
I've been meaning for some considerable time now, to write to various individuals in your line of work and thank them—sincerely and profusely—for taking yet another bold step in the direction of saving the children of this country from the vile scourge of public education.

A Plea for Tolerance
by Ron Beatty
First of all, I am glad to be back on-line and able to contribute to TLE once more. These last few weeks have been quite hectic, and I am glad to be settled into my new digs.

A Terrorist by Any Other Name...
by L. Reichard White
Newspapers and other publications keep what they call "stylebooks" to let the folks who write for them know what's acceptable to the publication and what isn't. Many factors determine the rules that are included in a stylebook, many, but not all of them, economic.

Set Thine House In Order
by Jonathan David Morris
A few days ago, a friend told me I don't write as angry as I used to. "You were better when you were mad," he said. A few months ago, a reader made a similar observation. Actually, what he said was: "Are you too happily married? You're losing your edge."

Real Scary
by Lady Liberty
There's virtually no question that something needs to be done to tighten US border control and reform immigration policy. It has been repeatedly pointed out that a lack of border control and visitor entry follow-up was responsible for the presence in America of a number of the 9/11 hijackers (adding insult to injury and illustrating the grave need for reform, the INS approved visas for two of the 9/11 hijackers six months after they flew planes into the World Trade Center). And most states are clear on the fact that illegal immigration is costing taxpayers a bundle.

Why Men Earn More
by Wendy McElroy
Why Men Earn More: The Startling Truth Behind the Pay Gap And What Women Can Do About It is Warren Farrell's latest book, and a fascinating read. It has stirred vigorous and predictable debate about what causes the "wage gap" by which the average female employee is said to earn approximately 80 cents for every dollar paid to a man.
