Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

Craziness exists everywhere. Newsweek, judicial filibusters and politics as usual in America provide conversation and editorial fodder but look out cause there is a war going on in places other than Iraq and Israel and Oil seems to be leaking all over the place.
