What a week. My wife's mom spent most of it in the hospital, and
so did we, keeping her company, worrying about her, and all that
kind of thing. The week before that we were doing the home
nursing thing with her. She's getting better now, doesn't require
quite as much attention. The ol' Stress-O-Meter was running high
into the red! But we're getting better, too, now.
While sitting around in the hospital, I discovered what Bill Gates
can do in his new job as a charity: put some comfortable chairs
in every hospital room in America!

A Modest Proposal
by Jim Davidson
Satire being rarely understood and even more thinly
appreciated, it seems best to label up front any such work. Just as
Jonathan Swift, by the evaluation of methods he dismissed as unworkable,
promoted the cause of starving infants and impoverished adults through
his satirical consideration of eating their offspring, so, too, I would
hope to provide for some benefits in my own proposal.

I'm in the midst of a very busy weekend. My schedule
is jam-packed with all of the usual weekend errandsbanking, grocery
shopping, going to the post officeand many of the usual chores. In

by Gerald Montgomery
On May 19th, I did the best thing I could do for
the people of America right now: I quit my $42K a year government job.
I contacted the Social Security Administration and told them I want to

a 20 year tour of service with the U.S. Army National Guard so I'm
slamming the door on that government check as well.
Immigration & Tribalism
by Paul Bonneau
If you are like me, you are a bit bewildered, perhaps
shocked, at the division immigration has created among libertarians. The
arguments used on both sides of this divide are also disturbing.
