Have you ever had one of those days when you can't think of anything to say? Yet here I am, trying to pen a few words to welcome you to this, the 312th issue of TLE. We have a fine issue this time, articles about timely topics that are in the news ... I knew there was a reason I don't like watching, listening to, or reading the news.

Just to be different, I'm not going to beg for donations this time. Think of it as your local PBS station's ending of pledge week. Besides, there's a letter in the letters section about that.

This issue's motto comes from a letter from Jim Davidson.

Please remember to tell your friends and enemies to come to ncc-1776.org and read our little magazine. Fresh issues every week.

Don't forget that you can order The Probability Broach: The Graphic Novel from:

Laissez-Faire Books   or  Amazon.com

Letters to the Editor
Letters from L. Neil Smith, Derek Benner and Jim Davidson

Terri Schiavo and Government Intervention
by Ron Beatty
Over the last few weeks, the story of Terry Schiavo has been filling the media reports, both print and electronic media. To my mind, this is a disgusting commentary on our government and media.

Just Another Drug-related Shooting?
by L. Reichard White
She said it was unusual—the Red Lake High School shooting in Northern Minnesota that is. Why? Because this incident of school violence occurred on Chippewa territory. In fact, the Native American spokeswoman I saw stated that this type of "Indian" on "Indian" violence is not just unusual, it's unprecedented.

The Few, The Proud, The Supremes
by Jack Duggan
In her Magnificat, Mary, the mother of Jesus, said that, "He has confused the proud in the conceit of their hearts." (LK 1: 51)

The Living Corpse
by James J Odle
When it comes to the two major political parties, I normally consider myself to be an equal opportunity politician despiser. I never thought I would see the day when I would long for the return of the Clinton Administration.

Congress Hates Mark McGwire
by Jonathan David Morris
All right, so now that Major League Baseball has testified before Congress on the use of steroids, the time has come to answer the question: Why? As in: Why, exactly, did Congress hold these hearings? And what, exactly, did they have to gain?

By Definition
by Lady Liberty
I... am a terrorist. No, no, not that kind of terrorist, but apparently a terrorist nonetheless. You may be even more surprised to learn that you might be, too.

Military Dads Denied Father's Rights
While he was deployed in Afghanistan, a U.S. Navy Seal wrote a lullaby for his son Sean, whom he calls "SS." Sean may never hear that lullaby again, not because his father Gary died but because Sean's mother relocated him to Israel. She visited family there during one of Gary's re-deployments and simply stayed, seeking a divorce from abroad.
