“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

The Editor’s Notes
Some great reads and actual laughing out loud

Letters to the Editor
from Jeff Fullerton

Meet Me In St. Louis
by L. Neil Smith
Sometime soon, I want you to do something for me—and for yourself.

The Flaw at the Center
by Sarah A. Hoyt
I did tell you I’ve been thinking a lot of heretical thoughts, right? Downright heresy against the fundamental principles of the society that brought me up, and the unwritten rules of the one who adopted me.

Dining in Paradox
by Jim Davidson
As Ben Stone came down the steps from the community centre, he saw Tyrone standing with Robert Dockery and Sally Smith at the foot of the steps. They were clearly waiting for him, as their expressions clearly demonstrated as he came down to them.

Heeee’s Back!
by Jeff Fullerton
A follow up to my first article in this journal submitted way back in 2013: “A Little Tobacco with your Tea” Featuring then life choices control freak progressive Republican mayor of New York City: Michael Bloomberg who was gaining notoriety at the time for his disdain for tobacco and personal crusade against Big Gulp soft drinks that were surely destined to be the ruination of the country. Who went on to become a notorious anti gun crusader trying to jinn up hysteria in the wake of every mass shootings before fading into obscurity.

How Black Friday Stole Xmas — and Thanksgiving and Maybe New Years
by L. Reichard White
Even Halloween Isn't Safe! I'm a market kinda guy but as business guru Peter Drucker put it, "Markets aren't perfect, they're not even very good, they're just better than anything else." And so there are downsides.

In Defense of Mass Shootings
by Nic Leobold
Society is totally corrupt, and the Establishment encourages this. Financial companies, banks, and the credit card industry systematically financially rapes the American people on a daily basis, the government and legal system taxes Americans at rates five times higher than during Serfdom, social and educational institutions lock out white men and other social Undesirables, schools torture millions of young people and destroy their creativity and vitality, and law enforcement victimizes millions of people in a repressive attempt to enslave the whole country.

by A.X. Perez
Saw purple cartridge case in my lane when I was sweeping up brass so it wouldn't be under foot. I was shooting aluminum cased practice ammo so I was worried it had been discolored by fouling and heat from my chamber. Turns out it's Law Enforcement practice ammo from the youngsters in the next lane (I'm not kidding, they looked like barely 21, if you count from the moment of conception. At a couple of weeks short of 66 most people under 30 look like kids, especially the slow aging folk in El Paso. A lot of folk over 30 for that matter.) It's supposed to be reloadable, but if you don't reload cases could be used for making jewelry or Christmas decorations. I think you can order this ammo in a variety of calibers, but I have not seen it in local stores.

New History
by Harding McFadden
A lot has been written about the current cancel culture, and to say that those who’d just assume erase anything and everything that they find offensive are unstable is to say that water’s wet. It’s beyond obvious. Everything bothers these snowflakes. And, not to sound too paranoid, but I can see the reasoning behind this as nothing short of destroying the legacy that is America.

I’m Tired of the News
by L. Neil Smith
I never thought it would be possible, but I think I’m suffering from news exhaustion. Usually I have the television on twenty-four/seven, even while I write, even while I sleep, and I know that the conflict between Donald Trump and the Dumbocrats is going to be regarded as historic, someday, either the end of the Republic or a new beginning. But I’m tired of Adam Shitt’s ugly, stupid face, of Nancy Pelousi’s Parkinsonian voice, and to take it further, if I have to listen to what Mayor Butt Petegieg regards as ideas, or Fauxcahontas’ wavery quavery substitute teacher delivery much more—both of them regarding what they intend to do with my fucking money—I think I’m going to throw up.
