Say, while I've got you here, if anyone has a laptop computer you're not using, we shore could use it here at TLE. We're going to be doing some traveling Real Soon Now for this and that (to see grandchildren, to see aging parents, and so on), and a laptop would help keep TLE "on the air" during the "away time". Email me.

And welcome to Issue Number 471!

Of Course You Know, This Means War
by L. Neil Smith
Sometime around 164 B.C., after the death of that itinerant bully Alexander the Great, his successors in the part of his empire that included Palestine decided that the locals should start thinking and acting more like their conquerors, a process that came to be called "Hellenization".

Why I was a Libertarian
by Bo Fredricsson
When the Soviet Union dissolved, and looking at the way it dissolved, an entirely internal affair, I got this feeling that there must be something wrong with my world view. How could it have been such a surprise to me if I was a reasonably well informed person. In 1992 I had some spare time and happened to see an ad from The Conservative Book Club. They offered a free book for joining, and an otherwise quite expensive book, Human Action by Luwig von Mises.

Going Down, Party Time!
by Jim Davidson
I want you to sit down today with your favorite drink, after work, and plan a party. Plan a party with your family, friends, neighbors, whoever you like to party with. Plan a Boston Tea Party. This week, this month, this year, whenever you want, have a Boston Tea Party. Party like it is 1773.

Open Letter to California Congressman Howard L. Berman, (D-Calif)
by Wayne Grantham
I don't suppose anyone will actually show this letter to the Congressman, the Baron of the lands that include what I chortlingly (post KELO) call my house, home and castle, in view of his Democrat (ie, leftist) mindset, so I'll circulate it in other places as well.
