Over the next few weeks, Your Mighty Editor and I, your friendly
neighborhood cyberpublisher, are planning a number of themed issues of
The Libertarian Enterprise.
Viruses, Tapeworms, and Trojans, Oh My!
The first issue arises from the fact that my lovely and talented wife
Cathy managed to pick up one of the nastiest computer pathogens I've
ever heard of. It has cost her a month of evenings tinkering and she's

So for our first themed issue, I'd like to see non-technical

Please send us your articles and letters about radically reforming
airline travel in America. If you've read my novels The Probability

I'd like to see the most of in this issue, although I won't rule out
rifles and shotguns altogether. Tell us what you like about yours,
what you don't like about it, regale us with any adventures you may
have had with itprovided the statute of limitations has run out.
If you have a photo, we'll try to run some of those, too. I personally
find that the best way to photograph most handguns is on a flatbed
