Mexico sets date for vigilantes to register guns, Associated Press
This is wonderful!
I’ve never lost a phone, but this is a fantastic example of the industry solving a problem WITHOUT government intervention.
I’m always shocked when I realize that I have become attached to a new musician or musical group – and why.
If you are not familiar with Dallas String Quartet, you should be. Their music is a classical-pop fusion that I find delicious. I love classical, but I quickly grow tired of it. I hate pop. Mix the two together, and you have something old but different. I really enjoy it.
DSQ Electric – Rolling in the Deep:
I also appreciate the way the musicians are completely self conscious about the camera.
The propagators of the Nice Doctrine can be seen and heard from anytime any Christian takes any bold stance on any cultural issue, or uses harsh language of any kind, or condemns any sinful act, or fights against evil with any force or conviction at all. As soon as he or she stands and says ‘This is wrong, and I will not compromise,’ the heretics swoop in with their trusty mantras.
They insist that Jesus was a nice man, and that He never would have done anything to upset people. They say that He came down from Heaven to preach tolerance and acceptance, and He wouldn’t have used words that might lead to hurt feelings. They confidently sermonize about a meek and mild Messiah who was born into this Earthly realm on a mission to spark a constructive dialogue.
The believers in Nice Jesus are usually ignorant of Scripture, but they do know that He was ‘friends with prostitutes,’ and once said something about how, like, we shouldn’t get too ticked off about stuff, or whatever. In their minds, he’s essentially a supernatural Cheech Marin.

Bryan Caplan of George Mason University and blogger at EconLog talks to EconTalk host Russ Roberts about the value of a college education. Caplan argues that the extra amount that college graduates earn relative to high school graduates is misleading as a guide for attending college–it ignores the fact that a sizable number of students don’t graduate and never earn that extra money. Caplan argues that the monetary benefits of a college education have a large signaling component rather than representing the value of the knowledge that’s learned. Caplan closes by arguing that the subsidies to education should be reduced rather than increased.

This video demonstrates precisely what happens every time you try to outlaw guns:
Police alarmed at gun numbers:
For those of you who are slow on the uptake, When you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns…. EVERY TIME!
That is pretty cool.
