“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

Staycation In A Glass
by L. Neil Smith
During this embarrassingly farcical exile period—house arrest imposed on us illegally by Colorado’s communist governor and his comic-relief slave-legislature—with nothing but the same corona virus garbage on TV, hour after hour, day after day, I have discovered two ways to survive. At my advanced age, stuck as I am in this wheelchair (don’t get me wrong, it’s the best damn office-chair I’ve ever owned) I can write, or I can drink. My heart doctor tells me that the latter is good for me and I try to do a little of both, every day.

Olly Olly Oxen Free
by Sarah A. Hoyt
Come out, come out, wherever you are. Tomorrow is what was known in the village as The Saturday of Hallelujah. Sunday is Easter. Passover night was between the eighth and the 9th. Even though we’ll be pounded with snow this weekend, the year is turning to life and light. And we’re stuck inside, the American economy in ruins, by the orders of our “betters” following those infallible computer models they’re so fond of. We’re subjected, every day, to more ridiculous, job-killing, wealth-destroying dictates from our lords and masters.

Stop Obeying. Your Chains: Break Them
by Jim Davidson
The time has come to stop obeying. The truth is that all jobs and all businesses are essential to the people who depend on their job and their business to survive. There are only about 180,000 police in the United States. There are tens of millions now out of work, and tens of thousands of businesses that are closed. If you re-open your business and you’re the only one, the cops will come and close you up. If you re-open your business and everyone else in your community do the same thing, you outnumber the police.

The Phantom of the CDC
by T. J. Mason
Knowing something about the subject, I have been wondering at the CDC’s steadfast refusal to acknowledge that wearing masks in public would help reduce the spread of the disease. And I’m tired of getting mocked for expressing that opinion even after the CDC somewhat agrees to allowing public wearing of masks, no matter how reluctantly. So I looked up the data. It was frightfully easy, with a little Google fu—and knowing enough to phrase my search terms meaningfully.

The Burnt Land
by Jim Davidson
Ahmed Kalinle trudged across the path to the next engine mounting. Here at 80 feet below ground, the temperature was a persistent 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Only in the last two years had Ahmed been working with Americans so he thought of the temperature as 15.5 Celsius. Although it was a very hot June day above ground here in the Guban desert, the conditions underground were much more like the mountain city of Borama on a day in December or January. So Ahmed wore a long sleeved shirt and enjoyed the situation very much.

The Rock vs. the Hard Place
COVID-19 vs. The Economy

by L. Reichard White
The Rock is the designed-for-perfection just-in-time economy plus record debt. The Hard Place is the jinned-up fear of COVID-19 and the deaths it may cause.

Alongside Night 2020
by Jim Davidson
Many years ago, a friend of mine, the late J. Neil Schulman, wrote a book Alongside Night which is about what is happening right now. The old ways of doing things have failed and systems are falling apart. New ways of doing things have been showing up for quite a while.

Resist. It’s all horseshit. Resist
by Vin Suprynowicz
Oh, how those who have long dreamed of joining the ranks of a newkonzentrationslagerwachen now strut and rub their hands with glee as they pull on their shiny knee-high boots and assume their new duties, ordering those of us in the massive new American unterschicht to remain in our toilet-paper-free cottages and hovels on pain of imprisonment, barring us from traveling about the country without proper authorization, barring us even from removing our blue or white abzeichen der unterklasse masks!
