Seen on a bumper sticker:


Kevin Tuma - Clarifications - On John Kerry's endless equivication. Hahahaha.

# Sunni Maravillosa - Sunni and the Conspirators: A Blog by, and for, Individualists - Sunni has launched her weblog, along with Cat Farmer, Tom Ender, Mama Liberty, and Skeptical Man. Yay! I've moved her to the "Weblogs" column of my links page, right under Claire Wolfe's blog. She gave my little weblog top billing in her links column. Thank you, Sunni! [sunni]

# Claire Wolfe at Backwoods Home Magazine - How to Avoid Work: Part II - some ideas for jettisoning your job and still earning a living.

So there we were at the Hog Trough Grill and Feed. Janelle-the-Waitress had just (in an act of almost saintly patience, not to mention budgetary consciousness) refrained from pouring an entire pot of coffee over Marty Harbibi's balding noggin.


"Don't forget, somebody could always work as a freelance writer," I added.

Marty snorted. "That's not real work. That's what every slacker on the Internet spends half his life doing. Yammerin' opinions. Twenty-thousand freelance writers at the bottom of the sea would be a good ..."

"Janelle," I called, "Could you please bring over that nice, new, full coffeepot?"

# I started using Gmail on September 14, over a month ago. It still rocks!

# My new Lyman Unidot performed beautifully at the range yesterday. I fired twenty slugs at a "Q" target at twenty-five yards. Eighteen of them were on paper and fifteen hit the silhouette. I fired the last seven shots as quickly as I could pump. I consider this result quite good for a gun that I expect to use at much shorter distances. Flinching, trainably correctable, was responsible for the two total misses. With a stock and a good cheek weld, I'll bet this sight would be good enough to hit human-sized targets out to 50 yards. Looking forward to trying one for traps.
