L. Neil Smith personally recommends Climate Depot
as the best general source of infomation on the subject.



This issue is late. The reason being I have a cold and don't feel so good. Perhaps after I shall have a hot? I remember hots don't feel so good either. At least this cold isn't so miserable-making as some I've had. Maybe it's just a cool. All hail vitamin C!

Beginning in this issue we have a new feature: you the reader can pay them the author (if you want) via a link to a new payment service called "GunPal". It's like PayPal except doesn't exclude guns and gun stuff the way the idiots at PayPal do. There are also lots of rumors and facts floating around that the people at PayPal are a bunch of crooks and thieves. I've never had any trouble, but one never knows, do one?

So, Readers, at the bottom of every article (and every email) there is a "Click to Donate" button that will jump you over to and allow you to sign-up for an account and donate the selected amount to the author of the article or letter via his/her email address, assuming you want to reward them for a job well done.

After paying the author you'll jump right back to where you were in TLE.

And, Authors, you will receive an email notice from telling you to come collect your money.

The Crystal Empire is now avalable from in the Phoenix Pick Edition reprint.

And You Doubted Me
by L. Neil Smith
The headline reads: "The Next Anti-Choice Target: Miscarriage". The source is, which advises us, "A new Utah law could charge women with homicide if they miscarry, making women's rights advocates concerned that women will be brought up on murder charges for drinking, failing to wear a seatbelt, or falling down the stairs.

Robert Heinlein Remembered
by L. Neil Smith
Imagine a lonely kid, undersized and overbright, living on an American air base overseas. Comic books taught him to read years before he started school and he'd tackle anything that fell open under his eyes. Anything about science or space travel leaped off the page as if printed in boldfaced italic. A neighbor's medical texts had such delightfully disgusting diseases you could practice having, and radio magazines ... in those days radios had vacuum-filled glass cylinders, see, and—radio? You know, TV for blind people?

The Res Nostra Part 2
by A.X. Perez
Way back when I submitted an article to TLE entitled "The Res Nostra". In it I argued that governments establish themselves by force. However, they often discover that the intended subjects have the ability to resist so they make a counter offer promising to protect and guarantee rights in exchange for submission. In effect they negotiate terms of surrender.

One Nation? Under God? Indivisible?
by Russell D. Longcore
If you grew up in America, you learned the Pledge of Allegiance pretty early in your life. And if you emigrated here, you learned it, either to fit in or before you tried to become an American citizen.

The Star Spangled Banner: A Flag and Song For a Warrior Nation
by Russell D. Longcore
Throughout human history, flags were visual identification of leaders, groups, armies, monarchs or nations. A flag flying usually meant some sort of control. The flag of a monarch flying over a castle could mean that the monarch is in residence or that the monarch owns the castle. A flag flying over a certain building could simply denote that a government owns it.

911 Film Fest part 3
Conspiracy Movie Reviews for the week of March 7, 2010

by Roy L. Fox
911 What's The TruthTime 1:26
This film is mostly pieced together from other 911 films and various television news segments during and after 911. It begins with documented evidence of multiple explosions in the towers using an abundant selection of video clips and eyewitness accounts. The controlled demolition of WTC Building 7 is thoroughly covered. Later in the film, Dr. Steven Jones is shown discussing the evidence of thermite being used in the World Trade Center on 9-11. The film also contains long segments of speeches by David Ray Griffin and by Dr. Robert Bowman. Bad points in the film are the amateurish thermite demo on a junk vehicle and an MSNBC interview of Dr. Jones which was clearly a hatchet job. If the intent was to illustrate how the mainstream media treats 911 truthers unfairly, then the film should have made that point. Otherwise, the interview does not help make Dr. Jones case. Bottom line, there is nothing unique about this film.
