Letter from Victor Milán

As I watch the grotesque fascist Kitsch with which England ushers in the new year -- & flushes the lie of Y2K down Hell's oubliette -- I can only wonder, once again, why America fought World War II.

With Tony Blair & especially the horrific Jack Straw running the country, England already enjoys most of the "benefits" conquest by the Nazis would've brought. Now they've got Nazi bad taste, minus Speer's sense of style.

I think surviving Americans who fought in the European theater should bring a class action suit against the Brits for fraud. They gave away their bloody Empire, which was all we were really fighting to preserve. Now they've gone & given away such pale grey freedoms as they enjoyed. What the hell was the point?

Well, enjoy the New Year, everybody. If nothing else, the relentless onslaught of nothing circling the globe with the arrival of 1/1/00 will make it extremely hard for our government to pitch a martial-law emergency, & start kicking in doors looking for guns & dissidents.

Letter from Gregory George

Mr. Taylor:

In the introduction to the New Year's Eve issue of TLE you wished: "Happy Julian New Year". Don't you mean "Gregorian"? The old Roman New Year was in March, I think.

Cheers,

Gregory George <g3org3@netzero.net>

[Apparently, there was a Y2K bug in the Julian date code. -- ed.]

PICTURE YOUR LETTER HERE! YOU'LL BE THE ENVY OF YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY!


Letter from Daniel Schinzing

Just wanted to inform you of a new book on the market that is raising at least a few eyebrows. Titled, THE STATE OF TEXAS is a LIAR!!, the book is a simple analysis of many of the lies that every state's government perpetrate on its inhabitants every day. There are approximately 75 different lies documented in 646 pages that retails for $19.95. Please go to the web site to get an idea of the contents. www.texasisaliar.com Thanks.

Letter from Kenneth Gregg

Dear John,

I am starting a classical liberal/libertarian discussion group here in Las Vegas for pro-reason, pro-free-market individuals in the local area. It is called "CLASSical Liberals of Las Vegas". If you have any persons in the Southern Nevada area who would like to participate in the group, I would appreciate any contact that you could send my way. Also, as Las Vegas is a destination-point for many vacationers, this could be a good place for visitors to meet local libertarians.

Our first meeting is scheduled for the end of January, "The New & Improved Ayn Rand", on all of the objectivist web-sites, books, periodicals that have been opening up. The February meeting will probably be on Murray Rothbard, as he was locally involved at UNLV for many years, tentatively entitled, "Murray Rothbard and the Austrian Economic Tradition".

I am using "CLASSical" in the title for several reasons. 1) Because of the educational/social nature of the group, I intend not to affiliate with any political organization so as to provide a "Big Tent" for a fairly wide range of opinions. 2) I want the group to have a little class. I delivered a talk on the mini-municipality movement commonly known as community associations for a local libertarian group (which has since folded) in which the organizer held the meeting in his garage and he was in short pants flapping a fly-swatter throughout the entire talk. I will be requesting that "Ties for men, dresses for women", be suggested in the meetings/soirees so as to improve the atmosphere of the group.

Please let me know if you can be of any assistance.

Yours in liberty,

I am

Kenneth Gregg <KGregg@free-market.net>
