"Gun control is the idea that it’s better to see a woman dead in an alley, strangled
with her own pantyhose, than to see her with a gun in her hand."—T.D. Melrose

An Open Letter to Robert K. Dornan
(The Feature Article)

Get yerself a new t-shirt!
Get yerself a new t-shirt!

My point, rather, is that you want to
live through the experience of being in
jail. So, do what I do. Be pleasant.


The Editor’s Notes

We may not have an issue for you next week due to this and that or we may have one. It is hard to explain.

An Open Letter to Robert K. Dornan
by L. Neil Smith
This here is a blast from the past with which we resume our vitrolic attacks on Republican foolishness in addition to the continuing attacks on Democrat foolishness. And/or foolishness in general. We begin with an oldie but goodie.—Editor

by J. Neil Schulman
Repeal and replace ObamaCare? Like this is hard to figure out? Look. I’m an anarchist-libertarian but I also take notice of politics. The libertarian position is getting the State completely out of the business of health, healthcare, healthcare insurance, and medicine, whether at the federal, state, or local level.

Public Protesting Has Limits
by Mike Blessing
In a recent article on NMPolitics.net, Heath Haussamen reported about a protest event at the Las Cruces Border Patrol station, where protestors were blocking the accessways in and out of the station. The part that set me off was this snippet here — "Midway through the protest about two dozen people, including Delgado-Martinez, blocked both entrances to the gated parking lot for employees at the Border Patrol station, preventing anyone from entering or leaving." For anyone other than sworn law enforcement, stopping someone from leaving a location without first having personally witnessed that person committing a felony is itself a felony crime….

Law Enforcement Arrogance in Detroit
by Frank Ney
Detroit Police Chief James Craig has an attitude problem endemic in law enforcement generally: one of entitlement. Last Sunday, one of his officers was shot in the head. You expect such things in Detroit. The officer was treated by EMS and taken to one of the city’s trauma centers. At last report the officer is still critical. On Tuesday, Craig gets in the news by complaining that his officer should have gone to the nearest trauma center, instead of the one that was ultimately used.

Disney Ride from Hell
by Jim Davidson
Once upon a time, space activist Gary Oleson asked space activist Howard Stringer to ask a question at the next meeting of the Houston Space Society. In May 1990, he asked, “What would be the one thing the Houston Space Society could do, in the next ten years, to change the way people think about space?” I thought about this question for about one second and said, “We could put one of our members in orbit.”

Violon Chinois
by J. Neil Schulman
Back in 1999 when I spent a couple of days at Epcot/Disney World I saw a performance of an ethnic Mongolian group performing on traditional Chinese musical instruments. One of the traditional musical instruments was the Mongolian “horsehead fiddle.”

European Ingrates
by D.J. Webb
I wrote on this topic recently, but have more to say as the topic is fast-moving. Do Europeans owe anything to Britain? That’s an important question. In the Second World War, Winston Churchill made clear that the war was being fought for the freedom of all European countries, and not for imperial conquest. In his “Finest Hour” speech to the House of Commons on June 18th 1940, he said: “However matters may go in France or with the French Government, or other French Governments, we in this Island and in the British Empire will never lose our sense of comradeship with the French people….”

A Week in Greater Appalachia: Happiness is a Warmer Planet
by Feff Fullerton
Vacation week; day 8. It sure went fast and now only one more left to tie up whatever loose ends and maybe relax and enjoy. Maybe someday I'll have a real vacation where I do mostly relax and enjoy. And maybe even go somewhere far away. Perhaps to Appalachicola to relax on a beach with the girl of my dreams at azalea and dogwood time while snowflakes may still be swirling back home.
