A statist govvie type afraid of proles with guns?

Feature, not a bug. From the comments here:
Apparently, the Chinese think that it's a human rights violation to murder somebody with a firearm, unless they're on their knees with their hands tied behind their back and you shoot them behind the ear, preferably while wearing a snappy uniform.

That is a good question.
LEGO produces toys for children. Therefore all LEGO products, regardless of age target, must be content-appropriate for this core audience. With this in mind we have decided that as cool as the Serenity model is, the Firefly TV show and Serenity film contain content that is not appropriate for our core target audience of children ages 6-11.
Seriously. Explain to me exactly how the Firefly/Serenity ‘verse "contain[s] content that is not appropriate for our core target audience of children ages 6-11", but a movie franchise that features face-melting Nazis and cannibals who kidnap, brainwash, and enslave children and then eventually rip out their hearts does not?

After the tax scandal broke two years ago, Kerry said he would immediately pay all sales and excise taxes to Massachusetts.

But when the Herald called the Nantucket tax collector’s office last week, there was no record of any bills or payments in Kerry’s name. A spokeswoman for Kerry said the senator’s accountant had tried repeatedly to get the tax bill from Nantucket, but couldn’t get a response.
That's interesting, the state's senior Senator couldn't get a response? Really?

Could Martin have been stoned on this stuff at the time of the attack? Would explain a lot.

And since those storms kept waking me up, I'm going to get something to drink and eat get out of the house for a bit.
