Number 56, September 30, 1999
"A libertarian is a person who believes that no
one has the right, under any circumstances, to initiate force
against another human being, or to advocate or delegate its
initiation. Those who act consistently with this principle
are libertarians, whether they realize it or not. Those who
fail to act consistently with it are not libertarians,
regardless of what they may claim."

The hurricane didn't get as far as "the foothills of the headlands",
thank goodness, though we got plenty of rain. After a prolonged
drought, I guess this is what the pollsters would call a statistical
leveling. But like many polls, it proved to be an unreliable source.
While Floyd didn't blow that ill a wind up this way (and let's not
forget that at this writing much of eastern NC is still under water),
the feral gummint certainly couldn't wait to FEMA its ass on down
here. And the state's statists welcomed them with open wallets ...
What did we ever do before FEMA? Well, we rode out Hazel in '54 and
managed to recover without the "aid" of a feral bureaucracy as
bloated as the hog carcasses bobbing in Carolina's rivers. But in
this day and age, it's du rigeur to politely accept a lift from the
HinDCberg - the mother ship is gliding majestically toward us like
some great feather.
All in all, it seems to become increasingly difficult to remain
detached from the tentacles of the National Squid, which lurks just

Is it that only those polls favorable to the position of the
commissioners are published? Or is it that if you structure your poll
carefully enough, you can produce the desired outcome regardless of
parameters? - TLE
