New York Times - By Ravi Somaiya - Jan. 05 (News) - The byline of Dick Metcalf, one of the country’s pre-eminent gun journalists, has gone missing. It has been removed from Guns & Ammo magazine, where his widely-read column once ran on the back page. He no longer stars on a popular television show about firearms. Gun companies have stopped flying him around the world and sending him the latest weapons to review.

On Sarah Palin's Impressively Incoherent 'Duck Dynasty' Comments

Rolling Stone - By Matt Taibbi - Dec. 23 (News Analysis) - Palin's mind is amazing. Slavery was purely a private-enterprise abomination. It had nothing to do with being subservient to the government. It was the opposite of that, actually. She was also wrong in the sense that the health care program isn't "free stuff" (even those who will receive subsidized care will be paying in one form or another for their policies). So she pulled off a Friedman-esque anatomical impossibility there, getting three feet in her mouth at the same time.

Nullification must never be on the table

NBC News - By Rachel Maddow - Apr. 04 (News Analysis) - some states are looking to nullify gun laws that don't yet exist; West Virginia is thinking about nullifying federal regulations on coal mining; and Mississippi, like Tennessee, is eyeing the creation of a nullification committee to pare down federal laws the state doesn't like. Let's also not forget that in North Carolina, there's pending legislation that says the First Amendment doesn't apply to the state, federal courts can't determine what's constitutional under the U.S. Constitution, and North Carolina has the right to declare its own state religion. If we broaden the context a bit, we can even look at the anti-abortion measures recently approved in North Dakota and Arkansas.

White men have much to discuss about mass shootings

Washington Post - By Charlotte Childress, Harriet Childress - Mar. 30 (Opinion) - Imagine if African American men and boys were committing mass shootings month after month, year after year.

The public would tell these leaders that they need to focus on problems in their own culture and communities. ...
