Dread, I. Wonder about it myself he says it is for coyotes. I know a very cute girl who wears a western gun belt and is way into guns. I asked why she needed to bring a gun to walmart and she glared at me and said "its my right and its loaded". She scares me.

I am the only unarmed person in town. If anyone bothers me my neighbor will shoot them. In fact drive down my street slowly and you likely will have at least one person watching you.

Sounds like a good neighborhood.

The correct answer of course is "No, I don't think that I need to have a weapon in Wal-Mart, which is why I'm carrying this handgun. THe purpose of a handgun is to provide minimal defensive capacity in the unexpected situation that I don't think is likely to happen. As a civilian, if I think I need a weapon to go someplace, I just don't go there. And if I were a police officer and was obliged to go someplace where a weapon was needed, I would carry a shotgun. Thank you for your concern."

Can't help but love thy neighbor - every night primetime on TV. We chat online all the time. Oh, you mean the folks next door? Haven't spent much time with them.

Most of the guys with a sense of humor have moved on, this is a toxic environment, and only those who have left, or are about to leave notices it. The rest of the people left are die in the wool haters, and the lack of humor here is sad.

It's definitely shifted since the economy went bad, but maybe not to the degree you think Jeff.
I think it's happening in many parts of the world, not just the US.

We just went through that Walker recall election here in Wisconsin. And yes, I can tell you that for about 18 months it got nasty, very nasty, around here. Friendships did break up. Family members refused to talk to each other and still do. There were outrageous acts of behavior on both sides. That stuff happened.

The economy has nothing to do with why "not very magical still" is full of unhappy angry people.

You are the only one here who lives in Wisconsin, and everybody else here is just plain angry.

Yeah, you do seem a bit angry and bitter yourself. But I digress.

WI is just a precursor to what we are going to see from here on out for some time. We've definatley crossed the rubicon on that one.

I was also thinking of Wisconsin when I read your post Stoney. While I think the nastiness you see on message boards does not generally reflect how people interact with each other, Wisconsin would be the exception according to many media reports.

But honestly, I don't know. It was bad during the Viet Nam War. It got bad during the Reagan years. I remember it was really nasty while Clinton was President. And then of course it started getting out of control during Bush's years and doesn't seem to be letting up. It seems to be pretty much as bad on one side as on another with everyone always claiming the other side is worse or even claiming that it's ONLY on the other side. (See Al's multiple silly posts)

To tell the truth, I ONLY see it on the internet, msg boards, and on TV. I don't ever see it person to person. But like I said, Wisconsin is the obvious exception.

LOL. My daugter's brother in law's landlord owns a pretty good sized box turtle that has free reign of the back yard. Last night they were showing me a video of the Box Turtle chasing thier Maltese around the yard. It was pretty hilarious! I've never seen a turtle with that much energy!

It's been a long time since I've read Heinlein and the reviews for this one are definately mixed. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear to be availble on Kindle either. What can you tell me about it Woland?
