“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

Tell It To The Crickets
(The Feature Article)

Spell it!
Spell it!

You don’t want to be trapped
between the force of nature and the
doubling down of human stupidity.


The Editor’s Notes

Here are some funnies…

Letters to the Editor
from L. Neil Smith, A.X. Perez, and J. Neil Schulman

Tell It To The Crickets
by L. Neil Smith
A few years ago, I was going to write a novel that began with crickets who, for some unexplained reason, are fully as intelligent as you or me. Their century-old little civilization, centered in southeastern Colorado (write what you know), is standing on the ruined shoulders of ours, and there are no human beings around anywhere. Everybody wonders why.

Mordor on the Potomac
by Jim Davidson
The above quote may well remind you of the extortions of the British empire or those of the American empire. The particular passage quoted actually refers to the Roman republic, roughly 150 BC. Given the extent of the power of the hereditary oligarchy that ran their senate, the term “republic” was, by that time, somewhat inaccurate. About a century later, the form of the republic would be “swept away” by Julius Caesar and his successors. My purpose here is not to dwell on ancient history.

About Those Self-Driving Cars.…
by Mike Blessing
One question for those reading this — How many of you remember this commercial from OnStar that aired a few years ago? There’s plenty more where that came from — I’m sure that when your car gets stolen or jacked away from you, this sort of thing sounds fantastic. With that in mind, there is a downside to giving law enforcement this sort of access.

The Norseman’s Diaries Extended Summer Edition part 2
by Jeff Fullerton
With a heavy heart I say goodbye to all those wonderful 70 degree days. It finally did come to an end as all things eventually do. And a rather dramatic one at that as far the weather and personal affairs are concerned. The latter has been a serious impediment to finishing this and the previous installment—of which this remaining text would have been part of had I not run out of time and energy then late one Saturday night. When you have so many irons in the fire—time and energy are limited resources.

An Open Letter to Senator John Cornyn of Texas
by L. Neil Smith
So you are the slimy, treacherous Senate Republican-In-Name-Only who is opportunistically attempting to override the Bill of Rights, the highest law of the land, and the only thing that makes America “exceptional”, to enact new victim disarmament measures, even though you and your criminal accomplices among both parties—including that unutterable harridan, Diane Feinstein, one of the few women who makes Hillary Clinton seem human—know perfectly well that absolutely nothing has been proposed (and no gun law presently exists) that could have stopped any of the recent atrocities in Las Vegas and Texas.
