Surly Curmudgeon

   The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort.

    Flags at half-mast, folks

    Col Jeff Cooper, USMC (Ret.), the father of modern pistolcraft, my favorite Guns & Ammo columnist, has died. It had been my dream to take a rifle course at Gunsite from him, but apparently I was too slow in saving up the money.

    Go rest high on that mountain
    son your work on Earth is done
    go to Heaven a-shoutin'
    love for the Father and the Son

    -- Vince Gill

    Rest in Peace, sir.
