How They Will Get Your Guns
And Everything Else They Want

by L. Neil Smith
As a writer of science fiction, I have often found myself making predictions. Reasonably often—as with the collapse of the Soviet Union, the advent of the Internet, .40 caliber automatic pistols, laptop computers, wall-sized monitors, iPods, iPads, and PDAs, the failure of Japan to take over the world economy, and the failure of civilization to be utterly destroyed due to Y2K—my predictions come true.

Report on Bradley Manning
Jim Davidson
On Tuesday of last week, Brad Spangler sent me, and several others a message indicating that Bradley Manning was to be moved to Leavenworth. We discussed what to do. It seemed that the thing to do was to start an event and begin planning it. So that's what we did. Brad Spangler immediately began the Missouri Kansas Bradley Manning Support Group on Facebook, and I immediately began the Bradley Manning Rally and Vigil event on Facebook.

Animals Are Property
by L. Neil Smith
Last Friday I watched an episode of X-Files in which innocent zoo animals were being abducted—apparently by benign, superior UFOsies (the ones who mutilate cattle and stick needles in women's bellies)—to save them from a despicable mankind responsible for the erasure of thousands of species every year. Or every week, I forget which.

Shiny Ball?!
by Jim Davidson
So, let's see if we can get this all straight in our heads. Real stories such as the deliberate release by General Betray-us of over 400 Taliban fighters in a charade prison "break" where the prisoners were given keys to their cells by their CIA masters and somehow ground penetrating radar missed a 1500 yard tunnel out of the prison—this story you didn't see.
