Armed Informed Mothers' Day

Editor's Notes

Remember to vote for your favorite TLE article of all time. Send your nomination in an e-mail to Please place the single word "Contest" in the subject line. The most-nominated set of articles will appear in TLE #76, "Spirit of 76".

No news on the Carlos Ghigliotti front. Laurel(MD) PD is playing it close to the vest. The coroner's report is long overdue at this writing. I'm sure that this death will be "Fosterized", regardless.

Great articles this week -- the much-delayed reprinting of Ron Miller's fine piece that has been making the rounds on the 'net for weeks now ... just in case you haven't seen it elsewhere; a nice piece just below by Jon Haupt on Mothers' Day matters; and a tasty anti-government piece by Steve Hoff.

Last, but not least, a word on "LibBits", necessitated by an L2E reprinted herein. Folks, "LibBits" is the section of TLE where we present snippets that are (I hope) thought-provoking and of interest to libertarians. They may or not represent a libertarian position; after all, the other side does some amazingly funny (stupid-funny) stuff that's worthy of note. I thought that the piece on licensing teenagers was fascinating -- in the horrorshow sense of the word.

The all-caps titles I put on the "LibBits" snippets are my own. They are meant to be relevant, provocative, and sometimes humorous.

Just a note of clarification for those of you whom I might have confused or concerned. Rest assured, we have been, are, and will always be, squarely on the side of

Freedom!
