Ex-Presidents and Guests
by L. Neil Smith
For at least the fiftieth time in his grimy post-presidential speechmaking "career", William Jefferson Blythe Clinton, whom we all know and love as "Waco Willie", has been paid, no doubt outrageously, to advocate publicly, a government policy of cultural genocide, a sort of "ethic cleansing" of anybody who clings to the first ten amendments of the Constitution. I would offer you the date, which was around last week, but it has been conveniently disappeared from the Internet.

Film and the Roman Empire: How to do it Well
by Richard Blake
My purpose in this article is to describe and compare and judge ten films set in the Roman Empire. I will apply two criteria. The first, and most obvious, is how these films stand as works of art in their own right —narrative structure, acting, general production values and so forth. The second, and for me almost equally important, is how well they show that the Ancients lived in a moral universe fundamentally different from our own.

A Song for the Upcoming Campaign, and a Picture
by Eric Oppen
I found a lovely picture of Hillary as a little girl. I wonder if anybody else will get the joke? I'm disgusted at the thought of Hillary even being considered for the Presidency. I'll tell you all about it -- no, I'll sing you all about it! The Song:....

Thoughts on a Massacre
by A.X. Perez
Re: the replay of every pro and anti gun argument as a result of the Mother Emmanuel Massacre. The shit got his gun illegally (it is illegal to give a gun to someone charged with crimes for which he was charged. ( I will refer to the shooter as a, the, or that shit. He does not deserve to be called by name.) He also could have used pipe bombs, Molotov cocktails, or butcher's knives. Gun control laws would change none of this.

Well, this was in a document that came in the snail-mail:

Federal law requires you to indicate your race in order to avoid discrimination in jury selection. (See note on reverse side). Please fill in completely one or more circles that describe your race.
O Black/African American   O Asian  O American Indian/Alaska Native
O White     O Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander
O Other (specify) __________________

The note on the reverse side? It says:

Question 11 - RACE. Federal law requires you as a prospective juror to indicate your race. This answer is required solely to avoid discrimination in juror selection and has absolutely no bearing on qualifications for jury service. By answering this question you help the federal court check and observe the juror selection process so that discrimination cannot occur. In this way, the federal court can fulfill the policy of the Unites States, which is to provide jurors who are randomly selected from a fair cross section of the community.

Er... it looks like to me that the ONLY way they could POSSIBLY discriminate was by knowing my race. But they think they must know it to... not know it? What? What? What?

Aristotle wrote in Book I, Section 2, of Prior Analytics:

First then take a universal negative with the terms A and B. If no B is A, neither can any A be B. For if some A (say C) were B, it would not be true that no B is A; for C is a B. But if every B is A then some A is B. For if no A were B, then no B could be A. But we assumed that every B is A. Similarly too, if the premiss is particular. For if some B is A, then some of the As must be B. For if none were, then no B would be A. But if some B is not A, there is no necessity that some of the As should not be B; e.g. let B stand for animal and A for man. Not every animal is a man; but every man is an animal.

No, wait, it's more complicated than that. It is... er... I leave it as an exercise for the reader. Yes. Yes I will.
