Go Rest High On That Mountain

A Vince Gill tune. A very sad sweet Vince Gill tune. When my mother was dying I'd well up every time I heard it & to be honest it has been known to make people well up when no one...

An Aerosmith tune. It's a more relevant title but perhaps "Janie's Got A Gun" would be more fititng with the topic I'm writing about today although it's not exactly right either. This will be a big deviation from what I...

The Morning Papers

Another Prince tune. Semi-obscure but nice nontheless. McCain may alienate some conservatives May? May? Wouldn't it be news if there was a conservativ ehe didn't alienate. Hell the guy ticks me off & I'm a libertarian. I wonder what the...

I'm going to talk a little about something I know a little about: music. More specifically the politics involved in music. I don't mean who you have to schmooze to get booked in a popular club, I mean why most...

Brothers In Arms

Colonel Jeff Cooper isn't doing well. Michael Bane & Say Uncle have both quoted different sources saying the good Colonel suffered a heart attack & has signed a Do Not Resuscitate order. If you're the praying sort that's about all...

Seeing Things

Yep; Black Crowes' tunes can & will be used as post titles. I was toying with calling it "Surrounded" or "Another Day" after two songs by Dream Theater, but figured they were too obscure a reference for most folks to...

Little Help In The Northwest?

I received an e-mail from someone who seems to be eager to learn about the shooting arts. Is there anyone in Oregon willing to spend a few hours going over the basics with a first time shooter or at least...

Another One Bites The Dust

In Illinois of all places a former governor gets convicted of "...racketeering conspiracy, fraud and other offenses for taking payoffs from political insiders...". (I'm also shocked to find that there's gambling in this establishment.) So that's one down, how many...

May U Live 2 C The Dawn

Yes; I've resorted to Prince album notes in place of orignal post titles. I was checking out Dr. Wadcutter's place & found the site for the libertarian candidate for Colorado governor. Her name is Dawn Winkler, she's pro-gun & she...
