Proud members of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy. We strongly believe in personal freedom, responsibility, and gun rights. We also believe in the 90/10 theory. That means that 10% of the people have 90% of the talent. Unfortunately, we are not in the 10% category. However, the rest of us are still better than 90% of the politicians.

An Amazing Human

A few days ago we celebrated the, not at all controversial in its time, dropping of Little Boy and Fat Man on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Yesterday, Albert Brown, witness to the need for those bombings, died.

Albert Brown was 105 years old when he died, but his story started as a 40 year old dentist captured during the Battle of Bataan. He was the oldest survivor of the Bataan Death March, a 70 mile trek during which 5,000 - 11,000 prisoners died or were killed.
