Not Me

Nick explains why I am proud of the fact that, altho I was born in 1950, never in my life have I boomed a baby.

Gangbangers' Bill Of Rights

According to reports on talk radio, Wisconsin State Senator Lena Taylor wants to introduce legislation which would block ever charging a juvenile miscreant as an adult regardless the crime. She is probably expecting some support from folks who feel sorry for the Lake Geneva high school girl who made the simple teenage mistake of driving drunk and killed a man, but the fact that she is putting this forward just after a 15 year old gang member opened fire on police officers makes it evident what constituency she is serving.

In every group of people, there is somebody blessed with the ability to look at things from a different angle. All too often, they do not get the appreciation they deserve.

The Glass Is Bigger

Some time back, I posted some price comparisons from the 1980 Sears catalog as evidence that capitalism is not immiserating the working class. I ended the post with an offer to scan some images from that catalog. Today, via a link from Tam, I found a similar collection, proving beyond debate that people truly are better off today thanks to free market capitalism.
