Words to live by...

"How beautiful it is to do nothing, and to rest afterward."

[Spanish Proverb]

Ius luxuriae publice datum est

(The right to looseness has been officially given)

"Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders," wrote Ludwig von Mises, "no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others. And no one can find a safe way for himself if society is sweeping towards destruction. Therefore everyone, in his own interest, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle."

Apparently, the crossword puzzle that disappeared from the blog, came back.

More On Pot?

As I was perusing my NY Times links, I came across this and was intrigued. So I followed up... I Googled the case, finding an article from a local Denver TV station and then I Googled the name of the shooter, Richard Kirk, and learned that he apparently had a prescription for pain medication. I could not find anything telling me his medical history.

I did learn, however, that the woman had been on the phone with 9-1-1 for twelve minutes before she was shot and killed. And that it took sixteen minutes (starting from the beginning of the call? The gunshot? This is not discernible from any story) for the police to arrive (a station was nearby, by the way).

It sounds like a propaganda piece to me. And it sounds like there is much more to this story...
