You Can’t Go Back

January 31st, 2013 by G.

Places long unseen often loom larger in memory than they really are. That haystack on the old farm . . . that green lane . . . that high fence in the back yard and the tree we climbed to look over it – surely they were an important part of the universe. And the old house had yawning caves in the closets, and untold mysteries in that deep cellar and up in that beckoning yet forbidding attic. Why, that house couldn’t have been as small as now it seems.

I remember these things, and they were real, and and they are real now where I keep them in remembrance.

But we can’t go back.

Their dominions upon the face of the earth were small

January 31st, 2013 by John Mansfield

The LDS Church has announced the closing of another school, this one the 49-year-old Benemerito of the Americas in Mexico City. (link) This is said to be done as the only feasible option for providing training facilities for a surge of new missionaries, but it had probably been desired for some time to close the school. A drastic, permanent loss like that isn’t allowed merely to smooth over some facilities crowding issue elsewhere.

The Hometeacher League

January 28th, 2013 by G.

If this is supposed to be a joke, I’m not laughing. The idea is fundamentally sound and the only botch in the execution was not including more quorum members in on the game. With the larger kitty, they could finance a quorum casino trip.

A straight-talkin’ law man.

January 27th, 2013 by Bookslinger

This sheriff, in Milwaukee Wisconsin of all places, makes sense.

A Wisconsin sheriff has stirred controversy this week after releasing a radio ad urging Milwaukee-area residents to learn to handle firearms so they can defend themselves while waiting for police.

In the 30-second commercial, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr. says due to law enforcing cutbacks, personal safety is no longer a spectator sport.

‘I need you in the game,’ he says.

More, with video, and 30 second radio ad/PSA.

David Mamet on Marx, the Constitution and guns

January 26th, 2013 by Bookslinger

Karl Marx summed up Communism as “from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.” … … [T]he saying implies but does not name the effective agency of its supposed utopia. The agency is called “The State,” and the motto, fleshed out, for the benefit of the easily confused must read “The State will take from each according to his ability: the State will give to each according to his needs.” “Needs and abilities” are, of course, subjective. So the operative statement may be reduced to “the State shall take, the State shall give.”

Read the rest.

Story of Mamet’s conversion from liberal to conservative in his own words, here:
