Over at TZP I blog about a dream of helpless victims of stupidly criminal “gun control.” There continues to be much powerfully good posting over there. Be sure to check it out regularly.3 Comments

I was looking for a quote that I remembered as being either from Satchel Paige or Charles Fort. No dice.
When I finally narrowed the search down far enough it turned out that the quote was actually from me. But only because my brain badly mangled and probably misinterpreted something actually said by Mark Twain.
Ah, the human mind. Such a wondrous instrument.
Nevertheless, the non-quote led me to something I blogged here back in 2011. It’s the fourth of a series on “the responsibilities of a resident of a police state” and it’s worth a re-visit.
That in turn led me to a Fred Reed column of the same vintage, which is even more worth a revisit.
I’ll wait while you do that.11 Comments
How one man’s decision and the right moment brought down the Berlin Wall. Something to think about next time things look hopeless.5 Comments
Old habits die hard. Despite hermitting, I feel it is my bounden duty to say something witty, insightful, and deeply profound this morning about the election results. So here goes:
“The veil between the worlds is thin tonight.”
Or actually last Friday night. So they say. Of course, in all kinds of traditions including nominally Christian ones, the veil between worlds is reputed to be thin from All Hallows Eve to All Souls Day.
You couldn’t prove it by me. The veil (if any) between worlds (if any) remained its usual cement-thick self.6 Comments
Vladka Peltel has those I wish I didn’t care about politics blues. She’s talking about this season’s billionaire disarm-the-peasants dream, Washington state Initiative 594 (which I agree inspires even my anti-v*ting soul to want to get out and you-know-what). If you don’t live in Washington and think I-594 doesn’t affect you, take another look. Win or lose, it affects us all. (And yes, this is politics and nooz and if it weren’t from TZP, I wouldn’t be linking it. Never fear, I’m also working on a post about hermitting, knitting, candlelight, and the veil between worlds. Coming soon.)15 Comments
