Must be that Globular Warming, it's 33-degrees Fahrenheit outside and heading downward. I really must check the definition of "warm" again.

You Can't Spell Assertion Without. . .
by L. Neil Smith
In our last issue of The Libertarian Enterprise, we ran a letter that originally came to me personally, by e-mail, in belated response to my article, "Teaching Pigs to Sing". It was from Texas Libertarian Party member Michael McNeil, who proclaimed himself to be with the so- called "Libertarian Reform Caucus", the same bunch, you recall, that eviscerated the LP national platform last year. Rather than describing this group for you, I urge you to read McNeil's letter right now, for yourself.

Nice Try, George Tenet
by Jonathan David Morris
A few years ago, James Frey wrote a memoir called A Million Little Pieces, which created a controversy when it was revealed most of the things he was remembering were completely made up.

True Democracy
or, Let's Kill Frank & Steal His Shit

by Victor Milan
True conservatives—honest to George III reactionaries, those who want to bring back the monarchy, rather than welfare/warfare socialist geeks like George Will and Bob Dole—claim that the mob will always vote itself bread and circuses. Not even conservatives are wrong all the time: this contention is proving out, whether in Europe, where freedom's brief tea-party is drowning in a protect-and-subsidize flood-tide; in the once-and-future Evil Empire, where Bob Yeltsin can only avoid defeat by the Communists by promising a return to government handouts on a scale the shithouse economy which was the Soviets' legacy to the Russian people cannot conceivably provide; and of course here in the US of A, where the battle cry for every generation since 1932 has been, "cut my taxes, but not my benefits!"

Gun Control: A Killer Cause
by Lady Liberty
I was at work when I received an e-mail advising that someone had been shot and killed on a college campus in Virginia. Not long after that, a second bulletin arrived giving the unreal death toll of "32 or more." With different news services scrambling to provide different details—some suggesting two gunmen were involved, one of whom was still on the loose—you can forgive me for thinking that the number had to have been either a mistake or a typographical error. In the end, despite the many other evolving stories, that horrific number remained unchanged.
