This is the story of two representatives who were actually driven to participate in a duel, resulting in the death of a sitting member of Congress at the hands of another fellow member.

It’s gardener vs. gardener season

I’ll either leave this or rip it out and replace it because it is really too much. Pick a side, because the middle ground is disappearing. What’s true on the political front is equally true on the gardening front. Over the summer, I have watched gardeners in my region go all out for natives, ruthlessly getting rid of plants they—admittedly—like, once they find out their buddleia/shasta daisies/forsythia/clematis are “useless.” The daisies especially made me sad, because I’d love to have a big...

Bloomberg isn't done meddling in politics, not by a long shot.

This Week on Shooting USA – The History of US Service Rifles

The History of US Service Rifles Nashville, TN -(AmmoLand.com)- The Trapdoor was the first cartridge firing service rifle that was much faster to use than the cap and ball rifles it replaced, even though rapid fire was not the original priority. But the Trapdoor was the beginning of the evolution to better and faster to cycle service rifles, adopted over the next 100 years, that most often put superior firepower in the hands of US troops as they served in two World Wars, Korea, and into Vietn...

First ereader: Nook?

I posted several years ago about getting an e-reader, but didn't go through with it. I'm now digitizing as much as possible to downsize, so having most of my books on an e-reader sounds like the way forward. I'm considering a Nook Glowlight. For my first e-reader, I like the idea of support being available at any B&N. Do their associates typically know Nooks well? Will they be reasonably helpful with side-loaded books? I'm in the US, but lived overseas and hope to eventually do that again...

Why business strategy needs to be flexible now more than ever

In these unusual times, we need flexible approaches to business strategy more than ever. Strategy is commonly viewed as a roadmap outlining how to get from A to B.
