2nd Amendment Amendment

I have an idea for our poor, tragic, benighted Murrican friends. You need to start a mass movement to reframe the 2nd Amendment as The Militia Amendment. You know, like how it says in the very first phrase of the amendment..."A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state..." Then you pass a law which says that everyone who buys a gun is automatically subject to service in a state militia, or the National Guard for at least two years (preferably ten), and that they must undergo military training. Military discipline. You may end up having just as many guns as before, but you'll have one hell of a well regulated militia and a securely free state.

Tableture

Oh my god! It's been a year and more since I last posted on this blog.

So, since then I have aquired a Samsung Galaxy tablet, and tonight I pondered the idea of writing some extended pieces on it, just to see how feasible that might be. Not so much, I think. The pop-up keyboard is not suitable really for what we used to call touch-typing. This means that text entry is more onerous. The word-processing function seems a little wonky to me. I've had this thing for months and I'm still not really sure how the copy/paste works. No instructions came with it, and everything I know how to do on this thing I've learned by trial and error. Mostly error, and it has been sort of a trial.

Nevertheless, I'm spending a fair bit of time on the tablet, so maybe I'll spend some of it typing on this blog.
