I just realized that I've written a novel about occupational licensing in a fantasy version of the 16th Century. In _The Magic Battery_, only male Christians are allowed to practice magic.

Trump is supposedly afraid that Congress will vote to withdraw troops from Saudi Arabia, with a veto-proof majority, according to "sources familiar with the matter." This sounds like too-good-to-be-true news. reuters.com/article/us-global-

The people quoted in this article assume that a candidate who stands for limited govt and constitutional principles will draw votes overwhelmingly from Democrats. Why? thedailybeast.com/trump-critic

I wrote this in a song I called "That's Socialism." Maybe I should change the title to "That's social distance."

Here come the secret police.
Don’t fret, they’ll leave you in peace.

It's not a crime to cut your own hair in New Hampshire, but it is a crime to run a barber shop without 800 hours of training and a year's apprenticeship. Think of how many people would die of bad haircuts without government protection! patch.com/new-hampshire/exeter
