  • OP-ED: "It Can't Happen Here," Down Under Edition

    Thomas L. Knapp|Sep 29, 2021

It's just a mask. It's just six feet. It's just no large gatherings. It's just preventing 'misinformation.' It's just a shot. It's just a mandate. It's just showing your vaccine passport on demand ..." Naturally, anyone who objected at any waypoint on that trail, or predicted the next waypoint, was... Full story

I’m going to try hard to remember to treat them (and all the plants) to a bit of fertilizer every other week or so. There are still a few hills of potatoes...
