Letter from Jonathan Taylor

           Just finished up reading TLE [#48...Ed], and who the fuck is this firebreather Elmore and where did he come from? Damn! Not that he was frothing incoherently or anything, but .... holy SHIT! I hope he doesn't live in California, or he's probably already dead! I mean, JESUS:

           Just sit and say "No, we will not do this" as often as necessary. They should say "No" when they are surrounded. They should say "No" when they are sprayed with water ala Bull Connor. They should say "No" when they are gassed. They should say "No" when the Waco Killers break down the doors and begin spraying bullets from their Government owned machine guns.
           Any bunch that did this would be heroes. They would be heroes as large as Crispus Attucks or Rosa Parks.
           Rosa Parks simply refused to comply with an unjust law. And she did so in a most public way. She also suffered a high price. I wonder if any California gun owners have the same kind of courage Mrs. Parks did.
           We have taken uncounted small steps towards slavery. It's time to take one giant step towards Freedom.

           I mean, that doesn't miss "Don't fire till you see the black of their balaclavas" by much.
           Then again, what does it say about our country that the first thing I think of when I read this (great) essay is that the author is lucky not to be dead or in prison?
           I'm not sure, but I think that's kinda depressing.
