"Do you pay your taxes because of altruistic compassion and concern for those less fortunate in society or because Uncle Sam is going to bust a cap upside your head if you don't?" -- Doug Newman

Ann Schrader at The Denver Post - Official advises jurors on God's law - Jefferson County Treasurer Mark Paschall has been handing out copies of the Citizen's Rule Book. Bravo, Mr. Paschall! [kaba]

Carmen J. Lee at the (Pittsburgh, PA) Post-Gazette - Hidden blades in schools point to growing concern - Ballpoint pens containing knives. Oh, my! Lions and tigers and bears. Oh, my! I sent the following letter to the editor: [kaba]

Carmen J. Lee made a big deal about students of the Duquesne City School District carrying knives disguised as pens. What's the problem here?

It wasn't long ago when every kid carried a pocket knife, always and everywhere, and lots of them, from the age of 12, brought their .22 rifles to school so they could use them to hunt squirrels on the way home. That's the America I want to live in.

If there are too many violent kids in the schools, it's a problem with the kids or their parents. No metal detector can solve it. No zero tolerance rule can solve it. Teach them morals (absolute, not relative, morals) and make sure that bad behavior (actual, not potential, bad behavior) has severe and immediate consequences. The good kids will then keep the bad kids in line.

By Jo Mannies at The St. Louis Post-Dispatch - A-B drops support of Holden over guns - Anheuser-Busch, brewer of Buddweiser, Michelog, Busch, and other beer brands, and the largest corporate player in Missouri politics, has dropped its support of governor Holden over his anti-gun stance. Bravo! [trt-ny smith2004]

Republican and Democratic sources say the brewery's decision not to support the governor's re-election next year is highly unusual in light of its long-standing reputation as a donor which gives generously to both parties and their candidates, regardless of their views.

Before Holden vetoed the [concealed carry] bill last summer, sources say, a brewery lobbyist showed up at the governor's office to tell him that such action would end the long-standing support he'd enjoyed from Anheuser-Busch and its executives. Holden confirmed that position later in phone conversations with Anheuser-Busch Cos. Chairman August A. Busch III and corporate group vice president Stephen K. Lambright, sources said.

CNN - Discovery may spur cheap solar power - they think they can get twenty cents a watt, vs four dollars a watt for current solar cells. Hope it's true. [smith2004]
