London riots: breakdown of Monday night’s violence. (Two observations from JWR: 1.) A lot of these “youths” appear to be in their 20s and 30s, and, 2.)

Note the hot sellers in England on Amazon.co.uk: Baseball bats, batons, et cetera. (The Cold Steel Pocket Shark pen was recommend here on SurvivalBlog as a covert self defense weapon. It is best for travelers to sand off the pen’s markings to be the most discreet.)

For any who have doubts about a Christian’s role vis-a-vis government authority, I recommend the new book Romans 13: The True Meaning of Submission.

The book is also available via Kindle.
