Last week, I was sick as a dog with a sinus infection and bronchitis. I was so busy keeping my nose to the grind stone I didn’t realize we had posted our 20,000th active post. Not bad for a website with one full time writer and just nine years to do it in. But believe me, this is a lot easier when I’m not sick.

“Happy Memorial Day”

Monday, May 29th, 2017

Last week I received an email with a note at the bottom that said, “Happy Memorial Day!” I thought to myself, “Happy”? How dare they? Memorial Day is a solemn occasion.

But then I thought about the average American. For the vast majority, Memorial Day is a long weekend, kicking off the beginning of summer. We’ve done such a great job protecting them, there is no significant connection to the sacrifice our service members have made to this nation. We’ve lost touch with one another. But while they’ve forgotten, it doesn’t mean I have to. I can take the advice and still remember those who gave all.

Some were friends. Others relatives. Most, I never knew. All too often, they died in battle. Still more succumbed later to wounds, both visible and invisible. A few even passed away from old age. Even so, those wounds, they still hurt.

But across all of that suffering were good times. So this year I’m going to honor those who’ve gone before me by thinking happy thoughts about them. For today, I’ll think of the jokes and the smiles. After all, I can’t think of a better way to remember them.

Consider Yourself Warned

Friday, May 26th, 2017

I’m seeing a negative pattern of behavior developing. It’s best to just address it, so corrections can be made.

You aren’t a comedian
No one cares that the price is too high for you
No one cares you can’t use it, whatever it is
No one cares about someone else’s beef
It’s great that a manufacturer doesn’t have the same political views as you, but this isn’t a political site
This isn’t Facebook or some online forum where you can just wild out
Don’t say something to someone else, you wouldn’t say face-to-face

Aside from the small arms renaissance post, few comments have been additive as of late. If your comments indicate that you can’t accept the guidelines set out above, they most likely won’t make the cut.

It’s Our 9th Anniversary

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

Publishing daily since 2008 has been tiring, as of late. However, some of our very first content was from SOFIC 2008, so it’s fitting we are here during this 9th anniversary.
