(Sticky) Meta: Site Maintenance 0

Sometime this week soon one of these days I shall be making adjustments to this site. It may be unavailable for a time. But, be assured (or be afraid), it will be back. (I must confess, sadly, that I am getting lazy in my old age.) I’m looking to implement SSL when I get a round tuit, not that this site needs it, as it handles no confidential or financial information, but it seems to be the in thing that all the cool sites are doing.

“An Armed Society Is a Polite Society” 0

Yet another random act of politeness. The headline:

‘Unfathomable’: Boy finds discarded, loaded gun in family’s Huntersville backyard.

One more time, “responsible gun owner” is an oxymoron.

Musical NotesScatter politeness while ye may,
For time it is a-flying.
The very person who finds it hey!
Tomorrow may be dying.
