The links keep coming at me even when I don’t look for them. And I confess I sometimes I sneak over to my old news feeds and hunt down a few …
- “Nasty, Brutish, and Short.” Bear Bussjaeger describes what life would be like if gun banners were really serious about getting rid of firearms.
- A chef and his disaster-relief organization not only feed storm victims; they teach them to rely on their own resources, rather than await unreliable help from afar. (Via Zendo Deb.)
- With E-Verify in effect, how do undocumented immigrants get around it? Hint: The old-fashioned way(s).
- Alabama ends government licensing of marriages. Even if they did it for the “wrong” reasons, getting government out of personal relationships is a good old idea.
- Student is banned from his high school for going target shooting with his mother. (Yet another predictable result of anonymous “safety” reporting practices that encourage hysteria and political dirty tricks.)
- Fuel is being heaped on the pyres for the next mortgage bust.
- Jim Bovard: 2002 landmarks on the road to 1984.
- In Australia, a vegan woman sues her neighbors for having backyard bbqs with (gasp!) meat and fish. The revenge of the meat eaters is swift and sweet (even though I don’t think her neighbors, who were trying to be courteous, much appreciate the planned mass barbecue-in).
- A physician who formerly worked at a federally qualified health center says she no longer believes government health care can work.
- Why does nobody care about increasing violence toward Orthodox Jews? Why is it okay in this case to blame the victims?
- Yikes. A new type of eating disorder is hardly what the world — or this teenager going blind and deaf from his pure junk-food diet — needs. But here it is.
- How to avoid getting caught in natural disasters, and how to minimize the damage if you are.
- One of those gaggingly sappy engagement photo shoots takes an interesting turn. 🙂
