THE CURRENT ISSUE


EDITORIAL MATTERS:

Nothing like the onset of winter to make a feller start feeling bad in general. Except maybe the onset of winter in an election year. Of course these days every year seems to be an election year. Or at least a campaign year. Any civilization that has year-round election campaigns does not deserve to survive.

In other news, not only am I already tired of winter, after tonight's exposure in the grocery store, I'm sick of Christmas music already. What this country needs is a good set of 5-cent earplugs. Oh, wait, I've got some cheap foam ones sitting in a zip-lock bag on my desk. Awrite.

Republican Party R.I.P. (1854-2012)
by L. Neil Smith
It pretty much agrees with my experience—as I'm confident it must agree with yours—that the collective intelligence of any given group may be accurately calculated by dividing the intelligence of the group's smartest individual member by the number of people in the group.

Déjà vu all over again
by Chris Claypoole
I was flipping channels the other night and saw an old episode of Have Gun—Will Travel on the Encore Westerns channel. This episode was titled, "The Five Books of Owen Deaver", which was originally shown 4/26/1958. The five books of the title were the municipal code of Philadelphia, which Owen brought back to Three Winds, a Wyoming cow town. His recently deceased father had been the sheriff of Three Winds, whose people then elected Owen to that office. Owen was determined to enforce Philadelphia laws in Three Winds, with all the zeal of a True Believer. Owen believed that if he just enforced the Philadelphia municipal code vigorously enough, everyone would become Owen's definition of law-abiding. No guns in town (except for the sheriff), proprietors couldn't leave their establishments unless they locked up, no rowdy behavior by cow hands that had just been paid, etc.
