Oregon Public Broadcasting journalists analyze the Malheur Seven trial. Some of them feel that this might have been an act of jury nullification. They also discussed the upcoming Bundy Ranch trial and describe the bizarre tasering of defense attorney Marcus Mumford, just after the “not guilty” verdicts were read. Showing some bias of their own, they downplayed the overt bias of Judge Anna Brown.

I’m often asked by folks to teach them “survival skills”. This is a hot topic. Just what is meant by “survival” to one person might mean something entirely different to another. As I’ve stated many times, I’m no expert in anything. I’m just a very serious student in a lot of areas. In the past, I have taught some wilderness and street survival skills, but I’m no longer in that market. Survival skills just cover so many different areas that I don’t even know where to begin. If anything, I’m more skilled in street survival skills than I am in wilderness survival. However, that’s not to say I’m not well-versed in wilderness survival skills. Many wilderness skills are more advanced and long-term “camping” skills. At one time, I was a Boy Scout Troop Leader, and many of the skills we taught were camping skills, and that relates to a lot … Continue reading

Regarding your top note on September 14th, this was an interesting story on The Lone Ranger and Houston. I worked for the Houston Post Newspaper at the time when this happened. A Southwest Airlines baggage handler stole his luggage, guns, and all. It was a slow news day I guess, so every newspaper and TV station covered it. The city of Houston had probably half the city detectives out looking for the luggage. The mayor, the governor, everybody was in an uproar. The governor even sent out some Texas Rangers to help on the case. Some years later I spoke with a customer who was a retired Texas Ranger and had worked on this case. He told me that the Rangers took this theft VERY personally, as Clayton Moore was very well thought of by the Texas Rangers, as you can imagine. Clayton Moore was hugely … Continue reading
