Thursday News

I appreciate everyone’s patience through this week’s dry spell. In addition to work related matters, there just honestly hasn’t been that much news. Or maybe there has:

The training arm of Troy seems to have hired an anti-gun ex Chicago chief to be an instructor, which grassroots action quickly turned around.

OFA engages in more emotional blackmail to try to keep the issue of gun control alive.

Tam: “Note to Middle Eastern dictators: If you want the New York media establishment on your side, only nerve gas your own people during Republican administrations.” Word.

Glenn Reynolds sometimes helps promotes the books of readers. Here I will do the same.

Dave Hardy notes that Los Angeles Community College is even banning fake guns now. They made an exception for theatrical performances but not for gun safety instruction. Doesn’t sound content neutral to me!

Ace: “One day everything bad will be illegal and everything good will be mandatory. And won’t that be a pretty utopia then?

Bryan Miller doesn’t seem to appreciate Chris Christie’s style. Miller is definitely trying to make a show of it.

Apparently Saturday is “Skip Starbucks” day if you’re an anti-gun activist. So head out for a double espresso on Saturday. Despite the fact that I’m trying to cut back on sugar and carbs to start losing some weight again, I’ll make an exception.

Jim Geraghty notes that the Colorado recall elections may have some legs. It’s critically important for every Colorado gun owner to be involved in some way, even if it’s just writing a check.

Megan McArdle wonders what happens if the Democrats lose their media edge, speaking of the decline of “objective” journalism and the rise of partisan journalism. Ilya Somin has more to add from a rational ignorance point of view. I don’t think political ignorance would be so much of an issue if the ignorant didn’t vote. But we tell people that voting is a civic duty. To me the civic duty is being informed.

    At least we don’t REQUIRE people to vote!

    Well, you can get fake sugar and fake milk in your coffee, if necessary…

    I’d suggest drinking it black, but it’s Starbucks. Their coffee isn’t actually good in any objective coffee sense.

    If you’re going to go to the New Hope show with me, you’ll need it since we have to leave early in the morning. :) If you’re not, well, you can enjoy it at any time of day while I pull through and get my dose in the early hours.

    Note, the Troy arms people have already allegedly dismissed the Chicago chief. They still have the Ruby Ridge partner on their staff.
