19 Sept 23   “Most ‘activists’ are just attention-craving hypocrites.”   Abhijit Naskar   In yesterday’s issue of the Washington Post, we see this gratuitous headline:   “Lawmakers are spending way more to keep themselves safe.   Is it enough?”   Enough?   Apparently, there can never be enough of our money spent to protect […]

Live From The Field
