Pro Second Amendment

I support the notion that big game hunting should be legal in Montana; but we should also level the playing field.

In 1864, in response to an epidemic of lawlessness in Virginia City, MT, a Vigilance Committee was formed and this group hanged 21 alleged miscreants, including the local sheriff, Henry Plummer.  Needless to say, this episode still remains controversial in Big Sky Country.

Bad Neighbor

I think this is a questionable house selling strategy, except maybe in Murfreesboro, where bad behavior is considered entertainment and is subject to an amusement tax. Strangely, it's more common where the entitled Gen-Xers live and commute to Nashville.

A Tabloid Updates an Old Fairy Tale

Recently some British scholar claimed that The Iliad and The Odyssey were not the product of a single author (Homer), but instead stemming from the oral tradition of a culture over an extended period of time. Ho! The Greeks were barbarians!

Revisiting of cultural traditions is not exclusive to hoity-toity learned scholars in ivory towers; even the tabloids have gotten into the act.

Specifically, the Anaconda, Montana Daily Butt Squeeze reported on some recent exposé made by a local scholar of an old fairy tale. This seems credible. Will Disney make an updated version?
