Publisher's Note: A Brilliant Idea
As the late, lamented Zero Mostel exclaimed in A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum, "That's what we need—a brilliant idea!"
And, as it happens, our Associate Editor here at L. Neil Smith's THE LIBERTARIAN ENTERPRISE, Dangerous Pat Lawson, has provided us with one of the billiantest ideas that we've heard in a long, long time.
The best thing about Pat's brilliant idea is that you, the readers of this publication, can help apply it, and conceivably change the course of history—or at least cause the enemies of liberty considerable inconvenience.
Here's Pat's simple and fiendish idea: every time another highly photogenic and politically nutritious shooting event occurs, at a school, a mall, a church, or some other firearms-free locale where self-defense has been forbidden, you, our TLE reader, should go find the item that made that crime possible: the sticker, decal, or sign prohibiting the physical means of self defense—guns—on the premisses.
Take a picture of it, with information connecting it with the shooting. Your faithful TLE staff will pair your photo with pix related to the event, so that when some bucketheaded newsfloozie or gentleman of the evening wails, "Why? Why?", we can all say, "Because, because!"
To the extent this practice becomes universal, mass-shootings will cease to be politically advantageous, and will gradually dry up and blow away. If you think this means I think that these events have been deliberately organized to benefit politicans, their collectivist agendas and their symbiotes in the media, that's probably because I do.
Here's another idea I just thought of: we all carry cameras with us now. Any time you see one of those signs banning guns, snap a shot of it, and send it to us, along with the name and street address of the company posting it (thereby _inviting_ armed violence). We'll publish it for the world to see. My guess is that they'll scream like babies.
Address your correspondence to our editor.
Thank you, Pat!

And back to the Editor here. I've finally finished reading Don Quixote, which I've been working on for what seems like forever. The problem is I find it all kinda dull. It is supposed to be very funny, but, alas, not to me. Perhaps ya gotta read it in Spanish or something?
And, throwing caution to the winds, I've now started in on Plato. Oh, lordy that is one big thick book, about twice as thick as Quixote. And, after finishing the first dialogue, I'm dipping into George Grote's Plato and the Other Companions of Sokrates, 4 volumes, in the Project Gutenberg e-Edition. And how long is that going to take me? Ah well....
