The power of pigs: tension and taboo in Haifa, Israel

It might be an exaggeration to say a boar broke the internet. But when someone posted an image of wild boar sleeping on a mattress and surrounded by garbage from a recently-raided dumpster in Haifa, Israel in March, Twitter briefly erupted.Not everyone is thrilled about Haifa’s suid inhabitants, which roam the city, eat trash, and sometimes attack people. In a recent article in The New York Times, Patrick Kingsley documents the uneasy relationship, not only between people and pigs, but also betw...

What the New York Times Refused to Report About the Gun Industry

By Larry Keane The New York Times plays it fast and loose with facts. IMG iStock-1263869768 U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- When The New York Times tells America they publish “All the News That’s Fit to Print,” what they’re really saying is that it’s only the news that fits their narrative. The New York Times ran a recent piece that attempted to broad-brush paint the entire firearm community as trying to do everything possible to literally get the ceiling to cave in on the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacc...

Open Letter to Sen. Grassley on David Chipman’s ATF Director Nomination

The Biden Administration’s Assault on Firearms Industry Continues

Joe Biden mentioned a number of the anti-gun goals he has set during his recent address to Congress.  IMG NRA-ILA U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Joe Biden mentioned a number of the anti-gun goals he has set during his recent address to Congress, but for some reason, he did not mention his support for bankrupting the firearms industry through endless, meritless lawsuits. This is an odd oversight, considering he mentioned that, if he could be granted only one anti-gun accomplishment by God, this is wha...

How the real-life exploits of a pioneering aviatrix inspired Maggie Shipstead’s novel ‘Great Circle’

There’s a family legend about Maggie Shipstead that is so ironic it still gets retold.  During a family visit to Michigan, Shipstead’s mother asked the 6-year-old Maggie and her brother if they’d like to visit Niagara Falls. “I just burst into tears,” recalls the author. “I was a risk-averse child who didn’t want to go anywhere or do anything new.” Born and raised in Orange County, Shipstead, 38, has since built a career as a literary novelist and travel writer specializing in risky assignm...

Book Review: Policing the Open Road

The idea that cars = freedom is a pervasive American myth. The truth is that the rise of the automobile — and rampant illegal behaviors that have always accompanied it — helped give rise to an armed street security force that too often acts as judge, jury, and executioner. Sarah Seo’s book, Policing the Open Road (2019, Harvard University Press), is a cultural history of how we arrived at the system we have today, told through the lens of jurisprudence and law enforcement. It’s about how govern...

Word of the week: Ghost gun

On April 8, President Biden announced a series of measures he planned to take, independent of Congress, to limit gun violence in the US. Among those measures is a directive empowering the Justice Department to stop the spread of “ghost guns”—homemade firearms, assembled from kits, that lack serial numbers and are thus untraceable. “I want to see these kits treated as firearms under the Gun Control Act,” the president said. As reporter Annie Karni wrote in a New York Times explainer: “There i...

Book-title mini-trend: The declarative sentence

As I’ve noted here frequently, book and movie titles, like brand names, follow fashions and formulas.

The New York Times has a piece up discussing a New Jersey lawsuit against Smith & Wesson. "She places her gun in a red leather handbag and gets into her car. The gun, in her bag, sits in the front seat of the vehicle as she drives to work. She then brings the gun, still in the bag, to a meeting with colleagues at the office. She then takes the gun, in her bag, to lunch, where she sits at an outdoor cafe. After that, she goes to the gym — and the gun comes with her. Finally, she goes to a shootin...

Two perspectives on Asian-American life that riff on fantasy and stereotype: "Interior Chinatown" & "Tiger Style!"

Hate crimes against Asian-Americans have been on the rise. "Some of these cases have made it to national news, but most haven't," wrote Anne Anlin Cheng in a recent op-ed for The New York Times. "The low profile of this wave of violence is a reminder of how racial violence goes unexamined when it doesn't fit neatly into the standard narrative of race in America." — Read the rest
