Thanks to “asderathos”, who created a YouTube video of my recent interview on the Armstrong & Getty radio show. It was pretty cute how he (or she?) used a photo of “Burt Gummer” (Michael Gross from the movie Tremors) for my portrait. My favorite quote from the interview: “This guy is disappointingly reasoanable.” I guess they were hoping to interview a real wild-eyed lunatic. Sorrry to disappoint.

Brian in Colorado flagged this article: In lean times, SoCal residents trade guns for food. One wonders about the wisdom of some people. FWIW, I’ve recently had a huge financial setback, with my wife’s hospitalization and subsequent treatment and pharmacy expenses. I’ve had to sell a lot of posseessions, but my guns will probbaly be the very last things that I’d sell. That would be like sellnig my birthriight.
