Mr. Hyde     Three years before I reached draft age I swore I would not go fight people who did not threaten our borders.

It was the art, not the business that interested me.  The art still fascinates me, and Dawn and I watch a lot of...

Windmills make us poor     For years, alternative energy development was stifled by petroleum subsidies; among them military protection rackets and depletion allowances. The subsidies were touted as a way to prop up national security and help low income people get around. But if the cost of oil was realized at the pump instead of...
