Gentlemen, Forget Locking & Loading — Sharpen Your Pencils & Dip Your Pens Instead

Today, Tom Tomorrow offers his take on the blowback on cable news (or the street) after the terrible massacre in Paris last week. This blog has never retreated from castigating religious fanaticism — no matter the variety: Prtoestant, Roman Catholic, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, or Hindu. (If this blogger failed to list your favorite group of wackos, mea culpa.) A plague on the miserable lot of them; this blogger hates 'em and he's sorry there aren't more of 'em. If this is (fair & balanced) rejection of reverse ecumenism, so be it.

[x This Modern World]
And Then, The Hot Takes
