Here we are, half-way through October already. I've had to stop wearing
the shorts and start wearing sweat-pants around the house. Soon it will
be time for the thermal underwear. Cold weather is a-coming soon, and
we're trying to hold-off on turning on the heating as long as possible.
The cost of propane has gone up just like the price of gasoline. I just
hope this is a mild winter, else we may freeze to death. And if that
happens ... who's going to put out TLE?

How TLE Changed My Life
by Ron Beatty
I know, you're going to say that this isn't possible. Well, in my case, it is.
by Tim Condon
Libertarians are such losers. I know, this is not a way
to endear myself to them, even when my best friends are all libertarian or
near-libertarian. But success is staring them in the face, and a significant
proportion of them deploy massive brainpower and argument to make sure that
nothing ever gets better. It's incredible.
The Case of the Stolen Supreme Court Nomination
by Jonathan David Morris
PAUL PROVENZA: Hi there and welcome to Kid's Court,
Nickelodeon's short-lived late '80s court program,
where kids sue their best friends and siblings over
trivial childhood matters, inspiring a whole
generation of hot coffee cups and frivolous lawsuits.
I'm your host, Paul Provenza. Like you, I was
surprised by the brevity of my IMDb bio when I looked
myself up after reading this column because I thought
my name sounded familiar. I could've sworn I starred
in Mad About You, but it turns out that was Paul
Reiser. Anyway, this week on Kid's Court, it's the
Case of the Stolen Supreme Court Nomination. First,
let's meet our plaintiff, Just About Anyone Anywhere
In America, who claims to be the rightful owner of the
open Court seat, which George Bush recently handed to
Martial Law stops at the NH border:
An SOF soldier visits the Free State Project
by G. Monty
It was the major question on my mind. I was looking
forward to putting the notion on the table. I wanted to canvass a
representative cross section of folks who are members and organizers of the
Free State Project (www.freestateproject.org) and live in the state of
New Hampshire. I got the chance to see New Hampshire and mingle with the
local FSPers on Friday, August 5th at a barbeque thrown by Margot Keyes,
the FSP Welcome Wagon Coordinator. It was wonderful to find myself in the
middle of a crowd that valued individual Freedom as much as I do.
Speak Now, or Forever Hold Your Peace
by Lady Liberty
The First Amendment is perhaps the most popular of the
enumerated rights in the Bill of Rights. As such, it's often viewed as all
but sacrosanct. But, like all of the rest of the Bill of Rights, it's being
chipped away whether we take note of the fact or not. In fact, virtually
every facet of the First has been weakened just within the past few weeks.
Victims Versus Victimhood
by Wendy McElroy
Weeks after Hurricane Katrina, the anguish of its victims
is still painful to see. Even people hardened by years of war and the sharp
divisions within our culture, reach into their hearts and pocketbooks at the
sight of it.
