Thank you, Michael Vick?

The revelations of extreme animal cruelty in the recent Michael Vick case have provoked quite a discussion among some young, economic libertarians.  They are trying to square their perceptions of inherent rights for humans versus any that might be due...

Catch-22

I enjoyed Joseph Heller's novel so much when I first read it that I read it again.  Maybe I should try to find my book so I can reread it because I'm beginning to feel like we are living it.  Doesn't...
