Gun talk: starts at 3:08. El Presidente blames Washington lobbyists: 5:05. And that would be . . . the NRA? Gun makers? Corruption, eh? Mind you, the American kettle folk would like to remind Sr. Calderon that that’s an awfully black pot you got those Felipe.

After creating, selling and leaving The Truth About Cars, I thought I’d never find a subject that would engage me as fully as all things automotive. Boy, was I wrong. The Truth About Guns (TTAG) is the most exciting project I’ve ever started, and man I’ve started a few. (Then again, too many to mention.) […]

As is the case with too many movies today, the trailer makes it look much funnier than it actually is. I’m not even sure it should be classified as a “comedy.” But there’s a […]

Maddow was upset at Trijicon scopes for selling the U.S. Army some 250,000 Advance Combat Optical Guides engraved with serial numbers referring to Biblical passages. For example, one of the scopes is engraved with […]
