“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
Ding Dong! The Witch is Dead.

Letters to the Editor
from A.X. Perez, and T.J. Mason

The Path To Peace
by L. Neil Smith
I have been writing essays like this one for almost six decades. Most of them have been about the United States of America and her sometimes rocky relationship with the U.S. Constitution. When it comes to foreign policy—and strategic defense issues—I’m a lot like Matthew Quigley (remember him?). I don’t have much use for it, but that doesn’t mean I don’t know how to use it.

by Sarah A. Hoyt
I don’t feel up to writing a post, mostly because my head isn’t “fully on” yet, (I’ve managed to be jetlagged for two time zones at once) and I’m not up to writing the Witch’s Daughter chapter that’s ridiculously overdue. I’ll try to do it tomorrow or tonight, around the promo post which, yes, I’m aware is ALSO overdue. Look, the last two weeks were excessively 2020, okay? I’m trying to recover. So I’m going to tell you what I was thinking of, apropos nothing (as far as I know) this morning.

Decentralised Finance and You
by Jim Davidson
Over the last twelve years, a great deal of thought has been put into the development of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum. There are now many thousands of similar currencies. The market has valued them at various levels, and you can look up their “market cap” and other details at sites like CoinMarketCap.com if you wish. One of the vitally important concepts to come out of all this thinking is the smart contract, which has led to the development of decentralised structures for finance and for operations.

Norseman’s Diaries Supplemental: When it Rains it Pours—or Sometimes It Doesn’t
by Jeff Fullerton
2020—the Milestone Year that went bad continues to be a time of mixed blessings. And it’s been busy too as I continue to labor to get things done—mostly in the Florida Room where the renovation going on two years is nearing its conclusion and work is currently underway to declutter and reorganize the remainder of the basement to accommodate more fish tanks along with a general reorganization of that space to get all my tools and household appliances like a washer and dryer and other things in order. Hopefully before the beginning of the end or come what may depending on who wins the election in November.

Ballistic Exceptionalism
by L. Neil Smith
Among the potential threats that America’s Founding Fathers feared most were insurrections and mobs. That’s one reason they opted for a republic, rather than a democracy.“Your People,” Alexander Hamilton famously enunciated, “Is a great beast!”—demonstrating that a even a broken clock can be right at least twice a day.
