For cat people only :-) Or, when kittens take selfies …

Sunday, February 15th, 2015

(Brunette, again.) We’re blessed with a bunch of cool and creative cats. They’re a primary source of laughter around here, especially the kittens (well, they’re six months old now, but they’re still pretty entertaining.) Strider, our gray male kitten (see above) loves to lounge around and help Vin at his computer. So does Sandy (see […]

Don’t forget to look up!

Friday, January 30th, 2015

(Brunette, here.) OK, unfortunately the picture doesn’t really do it justice. I stepped outside last night, and could so easily have missed this — the biggest, brightest ring I’ve ever seen around the moon. It’s not unusual to spot halos around the sun, I’ve taken many pics of those … but this felt pretty awe […]

Vin chats with Ernie Hancock

Saturday, August 30th, 2014

Friday morning, Vin visited on-air for an hour with his old friend, Phoenix-based Libertarian radio guy Ernest Hancock. Vin’s Cliven Bundy piece in the current issue of “Range” magazine came up, as did his forthcoming novel, “The Testament of James.” Through the magic of modern electronics, those with speakers on their computers can hear most […]

The ‘government shutdown’

Monday, October 21st, 2013

I can see how the thought arose, given that there are hardly any independent “state programs” any more (most having fallen victim to the siren call of “supplemental federal funding,” which leaves them […]

It’s unfortunate …

Tuesday, May 21st, 2013

Attempts to contact Vin at his former work email address or phone number may appear to go unanswered. Ditto, possibly, with snail mail … we haven’t checked. But it does seem that emails sent to him are going into a black hole somewhere — and the answering machine will take a message though he’ll never […]

Only a few billion left: Quick, let’s subsidize a perpetual motion machine!

Sunday, October 16th, 2011

Imagine some Great Reformer back in 1650 had decided we needed to replace sailing craft, since it took so many men to run a sailing ship that they had to live crammed together in wall-to-wall hammocks, with little hygiene and even less privacy, under a discipline little better than slavery? Imagine a powerful government at […]
