Gun Controllers Don’t Really Want that ‘Conversation’

Opinion By Larry Keane Gun Controllers Don’t Really Want that ‘Conversation’ USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Time and again, we hear from those advocating for more gun control laws who intone with a sense of moral superiority that we need to have a “conversation” on guns.

History of Landscapes Starts with Stonehenge. Really.

As threatened  promised, I’m blogging the History of Landscape course I’m taking at the University of Maryland, and here’s my first post. The (fabulous) teacher I’ll be quoting is Caren Yglesias. Interestingly to me, when I tell people I’m taking a class in landscape history I get questions like – does it start with Olmsted? English gardens? I love answering that it actually starts with Stonehenge because of the look of bewilderment on their faces. So what IS a landscape, anyway? Wikipedia say...
