A Message From the Publisher
by L. Neil Smith
As I write these words, talking heads in the mass media, operating in an almost perfect information vacuum, are still interviewing each other about whatever happened to NASA's Columbia space shuttle earlier this morning. The oldest ship in the fleet appears to have exploded over north-central Texas at some point during the dangerous reentry process.

Freedom, Immortality, and the Stars!
by William Stone, III
On January 28, 1986, I was walking through the student union of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln when I first saw the footage of the space shuttle Challenger exploding. It was footage that I would watch with great sadness for the remainder of my life. Indeed, I doubt anyone of my generation could avoid the footage, considering that it was aired every few minutes for months.

Frankly My Dear ...
by L. Neil Smith
My 13-year-old is home schooled. My wife and I have always tried to supplement whatever education she receives from the online institution of learning that she attends cybernetically, with whatever else we believe is valuable. Last month, for example, I formally introduced her to Mr. Marion Michael Morrison, beginning, for reasons that seemed right and proper to me, with True Grit. I'm working up the courage to show her The Cowboys and The Shootist. This month it was Gone with the Wind ...

The World Turned Upside Down
by Patrick K Martin
It is now official, the world has gone completely insane. Why? Because of all the things I have ever been called, of all the labels which have ever been directed at me, the one which I never expected to hear is the one which might soon be applied, Draft-Dodger! How in the Hell has it ever come to this? I was in high school when they brought back Selective Service, and one of the nuns had some old sixties hippie in to give classes on how to become conscientious objectors or otherwise evade the draft. I didn't go to that class because I threatened to spit in the guy's face, and now I find myself regretting it (I threatened to spit in the face of the Sandinista she brought to class too, but I don't regret that one, commie bastard).

Cry Havok! And Let Slip the Lickspittles of War
by Joel Simon
Until recently, I'd have said "conservative" commentators were more fun than "liberal" commentators. You know both are shoveling manure, but one load always seemed a little less painful to bear than the other. I've had my favorites for years. Sobran, Krauthammer, Will, Sowell, Charen - I could name dozens. The list seems almost infinite.

State of Disunion 2003
by William Stone, III
Well, Dubyuh's most recent State of Disunion address is out of the way, and I managed to restrain myself from watching it. What would have been the point? All he was going to do was go on about saving the world from terrorism and adding all kinds of insane government programs that would save the world. And -- as they've been in the process of doing since Bloody Tuesday -- the Republicans would applaud like the wild, power-mad butchers they are, ejecting once and for all the notion that they have any real affinity for limited government.

There Ought Not to be a Law
by Wendy McElroy
One danger of arguing for or against a position is that everyone thinks you are saying, "there ought to be a law." Take the issue of discrimination on the basis of sex or gender as an example. If you argue against it, people assume you want to prohibit discrimination. If you argue for the right to discriminate, they assume you want to return to Jim Crow laws and force women back to the kitchen.
