Safe Captain, Unhinged Busybodies

John Cole finds plenty of dumb to go around in the aftermath of the Pirate story. And there is plenty of dumb to go around.

Let me back up. I followed the pirate story closely – it was pretty dramatic and scary. I’m very glad it had a happy ending. I didn’t say anything [...]

Boortz {Hearts} the Nanny State

Shorter Boortz: Boortz:

If you don’t make it illegal for people to make dumb suicidal choices, their blood is on your hands.
