The Murder of a President;
and the death of a constitution.

As we approach the anniversary of the assassination of John F
Kennedy, and subsequently suffer the deluge of documentaries and
retrospectives which always accompany such a date. I am struck, not
so much by the facts of the crime in question, but rather the public
response to it and the subsequent cover-up. Now, for myself, I donít

by Ron Beatty
Fifteen years ago, America and the world lost one of the greatest
philosophers, writers, and patriots of the Twentieth Century. Born
in 1907, Robert A. Heinlein planned to make the Navy his career, but
ill-health changed his plans. Medically discharged, considered
totally disabled, and with no way of earning a living, in the middle
of the Great Depression, Heinlein tried many things. Finally, he
decided to write a story. That story, and the many that followed,
changed this country and the world forever.
Fathers Protest Unjust Custody Laws
by Wendy McElroy
Last month, Spider-Man was arrested in London after spending five
days atop a cloud-kissing crane next to the historic Tower Bridge.
In donning the costume of his daughter's favorite cartoon character,
36-year-old David Chick tried to draw attention to the misery of
estranged fathers who have been denied access to their children by a
family court system he believes is anti-male.
