California: How the Legislature’s Shutdown Impacts the 2nd Amendment

California Flag Guns Gun Control U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- The California Legislature is away on their summer recess but that doesn’t mean some shifty shenanigans aren’t taking place. They recently used the Governor’s budget as a brazen means to do some 2nd Amendment damage, and now we are facing some new abnormal challenges. Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon issued a statement this week that the Assembly is now “closed until further notice” following six confirmed COVID-19 cases among lawmakers...

This gardening challenge may require you to hedge your bets

Would you be kind enough to recommend several very fast-growing hedges that need only half a day of sunlight? I would like them to remain full and close to the ground as they grow. They will be in a row about 55 feet by 5 feet tall. We have poor clay soil. — Gerta McKeehan, West Hills You have a double challenge with only half-day sun and clay soil. For this reason, I would be cautious about committing to a single plant species for such a long hedge. Plant two or three different species in the f...

Do ‘Universal Background Checks’ Really Work? Research ‘Mixed’

Do ‘universal background checks' really work to reduce gun-related crime? (Dave Workman) U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- A recent report by American University Radio (WAMU) in Washington, D.C. probably isn’t what the gun prohibition lobby wanted to see because it feeds a healthy skepticism that a cornerstone of the gun control agenda might be all wet.

Weekend Reading 7.5.20

Hello my friends, and happy Fourth of July weekend. Ours was very mellow, just a backyard BBQ, not much different than a regular summer night!

36 Hours in Mendocino

Why transforming higher education can promote racial equality

I was very active politically in the 1960s, 70s, and the early 80s. Life became more difficult in the late 1980s with the arrival of a third child, and as I focused to publish enough to get tenure in a large Midwestern university. Today, as I look back on that time, I struggle with two perspectives about current anti-racist activism and about a continued anti-racist struggle in the academy. One of them is to believe that the current political reckoning over racism in the United States is differe...

Modern Uses of Breeze Blocks

Ever since my visit to Palm Springs I’ve had breeze blocks on my mind. They’re iconic in that part of California as part of the mid century modern style of homes that surged in popularity in the 1950s and 1960s and they’re incorporated into the architecture in the form of screens and walls. Breeze blocks allow for ventilation but also provide some privacy and sun protection. Another bonus is they are structural so they can be used in place of framing for support. The use of breeze blocks is maki...
