“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
2020 … The Horror Story …

Letters to the Editor
from A.X. Perez, and Rob Gillespie

Weapons of War
by L. Neil Smith
I have written about this subject several times before, starting ’way back in the Dolly Dumbass days of the Million Moron March. It has become clear by now that disgusting vermin of the same political stripe as Bolshevik Biden and Communist Kamala are scheming with their Marxist-Leninist accomplices in BLM, Anti-fa, By Any Means Necessary, and other squiggly multi-legged things you find under a damp log, to deprive the American Productive Class of everything they have striven so hard to achieve to make life livable and decent and rewarding.

Change Change Change
by Sarah A. Hoyt
So, who had “Atlantis rises” on their 2020 bingo card? No, no. Sit. Don’t go scouring news sites. That I know of, it hasn’t happened yet. But would anyone really be surprised? How many of us have gotten used to shaking our heads and going “D*mn it, 2020.”

Trying to Explain the Present Madness
by Sean Gabb
There was a time when I’d trouble you two or three times a week with my thoughts on this or that or the other. I’m now down to about once a month. I could blame advancing years for the slowing of output. But I doubt this. Part of the reason is that, while I used to be a unique voice, what I say is now a growing consensus on the political “right,” and is being echoed even in the legacy media. This being so, why bother continuing to say what everyone can now read in The Daily Mail?

Upcoming Events
by Jim Davidson
There has been an aspect of reality, for me, and for some other people I've talked to, that has seemed very unsettling due to the tyranny, but also on a spiritual level, not quite "real." As though either another shoe were about to drop or somehow I know that what is happening all becomes irrelevant due to something that is coming soon. Many people I know have been talking about the "little chastisements" and the "great chastisement" and have pondered whether this time we are in represents one or the other of those prophesied times. All of which is to say that I'm not sure if events after the Autumnal Equinox or as "far off" as the election in November feels are really going to happen as planned.

Hope Springs Eternal
by Jeff Fullerton
Another update for my both my Adventures in Herpetology & the Norseman’s Diaries. Was considering trying to finish the partially written Farewell to Spring / Midsummer edition of the later this morning but too much to do before a 3 to 11 shift after a busy week with a lot going on—mostly good stuff like recovery of more turtle eggs and a breakthrough on my gutter problem with a new shop vac and a gutter cleaning kit! And along with that some disturbing , depressing news: two esteemed coworkers have been terminated/ let go. So sudden and unexpected. On top of that—while I struggle to put my own house in order the world continues to fall apart.

COVID-19: Truth, Conspiracy, or SNAFU—YOU Decide. The FULL MONTY!
Will COVID-19 kill you? Will the economy re-open?

by L. Reichard White
We will not escape from this misery until the Government has been forced to admit that it made a foolish mistake and over-reacted wildly to Covid-19. —The BBC's Peter Hitchens A snowball's chance in the hot place comes to mind. Rather than waiting for that ice water, as usual, we'll have to straighten this out for ourselves. So, do you believe COVID-19 will kill you? And will the economy re-open? The two answers are joined at the hip.Because it's not so much the virus that needs to be brought under control, it's the establishment narrative, fake news and urban myth about the virus.
