Letters to the Editor
from Angela Zhang, Rich Matarese, Kevin S. Van Horn, and A.X. Perez
by L. Neil Smith
The grift. It's as old as humanitypossibly even older. Perhaps
there were Neanderthal con men, Homo habilis hucksters, long before Homo sap
(no abbreviation) first raised his credulous eyes to the stars.
The Case for GOP presidential candidate Gary Johnson
by Ben F. Irvin
Former Governor Gary Johnson is still the best candidate for
libertarians to support for those that engage in real politics. Although I have
long supported Ron Paul, Johnson makes a better libertarian candidate for the GOP
presidential candidacy for the following reasons:
9/11: Even If the Official Story Is True, the Official Response Is Still Wrong
by Doug Newman
I am going to assume, for the sake of this article, that 9/11
happened exactly according to the official story. Even if this story is entirely
true, the official response has still been totally wrong, as have been the oft-repeated
clichés of those who believe the official story.
Libertarian Law: The Math of Probable Cause
Combining a few disparate bits of math may give us some useful
conclusions about the nature of legal systems, and why some systems are more effective
and stable than others. Don't worry if you don't like numbers; nothing here is more
complicated than multiplication, and I'll work through that for you.

International: The German Parliament voted overwhelmingly to
authorize more bailouts for European Union members. What the hell are they thinking?

in the toilet. But that won't last long at this rate. Remember... 16 leeches... 1 host.
XCOR Wet Lease
by Jim Davidson
You may remember that there used to be people who wanted to fly in
space. Way back in the last millennium, I was one of those people. It was 1968, and I
was six years old, sitting in my father's basement where he had moved the television
set (a clunky old black and white one, cheapest he could get, without a remote control
other than the youngest son) after the political conventions. You might remember the
police rioting in Chicago and bashing the heads of a lot of demonstrators at the
Democrat national convention, if you were alive back then. Or, you know, you could
look it up.
