    398 pages, paperback, Privateer Publications, 2016 I met Chris Bird at a Gun Rights Policy Conference (GRPC).  We were sitting next to each other in the front row.  We had both interviewed Vic Stacy, the hero who made hits at 57 yards at the Peach House gun fight.  Stacy shot the insane killer who was shooting at police sergeant Steven Means from behind cover.  He made the shots with a 6 inch, stainless .357 magnum Colt Python. Not surprisingly, the stories we got were nearly identical.  Chris published his account in one of his books, mine went on Gun...

      Despite predictions he would be swiftly abandoned by his colleagues, House Democrats are shrugging off Rep. Charles Rangel’s ethical scandal as they head for the exits for a six-week summer break. At least for now. Most Democrats are suggesting that they’ll let Rangel go through his upcoming ethics trial, taking a wait-and-see attitude as the ethics procedures unfold. There seem to be three key reasons Rangel is surviving the initial ambush of bad publicity without a true drive to oust him from Congress. First, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and other party leaders advising Democrats to stay calm – lawmakers...

    1. Just pretend you're on a really, really long vacation to Sweden. 2. To avoid your forthcoming tax increase, go to your boss and demand a pay cut. 3. Bring a copy of "War and Peace" to your doctor's waiting room. Don't worry, you'll have time to read it. 4. If you're an oil company, cut out the middle man and just declare bankruptcy. 5. Find out how to "clip coupons" and "find bargains." Life will be different when you're making maximum wage. 6. Take heart that your kids will no longer have to study market economics. Like intelligent design,...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito begins his Senate confirmation hearing on Monday, facing tough questions on matters from civil liberties and presidential war powers to his own opposition to abortion. With the direction of the nation's highest court at stake, lawmakers in both parties on the Senate Judiciary Committee are expected to challenge President George W. Bush's conservative nominee on his legal record and beliefs. Yet barring an unforeseen bombshell or bumbling performance, the full Republican-led Senate later this month is expected to confirm Alito, a federal appeals judge since 1990 who previously served as a...

    WASHINGTON — What if we fail to prevent an attack?Assume every line of defense against nuclear terrorism is breached: the efforts to lock up nuclear material abroad, to spy out hidden weapons programs, to deter rogue states and capture terrorists, to detect smuggled bombs at the border or downtown — every preventive measure discussed in the previous five installments of this series. Assume someone, somehow, gets all the way through. It only has to happen once. Assume that this someone puts together a crude atomic bomb, of the “Little Boy” type dropped on Hiroshima in 1945, a heavy and awkward device...

Escaping uncertainty, fear, loneliness, bitterness, emptiness, anger or hate.Grief, and how to cope, is far too difficult a topic to stumble upon with simple words. No one, least of all me, could possibly understand the full range of pain, or the depth of emotion each of us feel at that dreadful moment when we experience a real loss. Dealing with the loss after all, is a vital first step on the long journey to healing. Each of us must confront this necessary...
