"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

Remember: libretarians are just people who want to be left alone. Consider: many people find that outrageous and offensive. Figure out: what is wrong with these people!

The Other Stars and Stripes
by L. Neil Smith
Note: they are saying, on the Internet today, that, in addition to tearing down the Jefferson Memorial, there are plans to dig up the remains of Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest and throw them away or exile them somewhere. True, Forrest was the founder of the Ku Klux Klan, but only those who care not to be know-nothing pimpleheads are aware the he intended it to be valiant guerrilla resistance to the brutal, occupying Union. It went wrong in other hands. I can’t think of a lower, scummier act than this one, and I will do what I can so that these ghouls can’t look at themselves in a mirror.

Should States That Permit ‘Concealed Carry’ Face Boycotts?
by Vin Suprynowicz
On March 22, Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson signed “campus carry” legislation into law. On March 23, the USA Today newspaper and its Web site, “The Big Lead,” responded with a prominent opinion piece recommending a boycott of National College Athletic Association events in Arkansas, to protest the fact that those who undergo proper training and acquire a proper permit will now be “allowed” to carry concealed firearms for self-defense on campuses there.

Summer in Wunderland: Beautiful Weeds
by Jeff Fullerton
Currently working the upcoming Norseman’s article and another one on some of the colorful characters / curmudgeons I’ve met in the shady and eccentric world of the reptile business. Unfortunately progress is slow because I can use maybe another week or two to span a little more time worthy of a smashing spring edition.
