Don’t worry; I haven’t forgotten … well, all the things you might be thinking I’ve forgotten. I will write a post to kick off a women-and-carry-guns discussion (per yesterday’s comment thread). I will get the second draft of the snitch book done and off to you volunteer reviewers (next week with some luck). And I will get that long-promised raffle rifle decorated — although at this point I admit that promise still falls in the category of vaporware. And perhaps even verges on “political promise” territory.
I can’t believe how busy this year has been. But it looks as if I’m coming into a small break soon. (Don’t say that, Claire. You know what happens when you say things like that!)
Meanwhile, some links for ya:
- Ridiculous. (H/T JW)
- Ridiculouser. Not to mention insulting, stupid, cowardly, and discriminatory against a disabled three-year-old.
- James Howard Kunstler wrote the other day about the lack of “male energies” in our culture. While I disagree with his examples, sometimes I wonder the same thing. I grew up in a time where “energies” were unbalanced to the male side. That wasn’t great. But we’ve clearly swung too far in the opposite direction. No culture with balls would do the above.
- Another reason to have a dog: in case a cougar decides to come into your house to eat you.
- Now here’s a problem you might not have considered. Too few Americans turn to the fedgov for assistance. Yeah. Really. They said that. They did.
