About Me

I have been on DU since 2006 under \"SteveM\" and later \"SteveW.\" Due to an account mix-up and a computer crash, I have \"rejoined\" as Eleanors38, but my history at DU includes the names cited.

Dove season in Texas looms: Sept. 1...

Will be heading NW of Austin about a hundred miles to a little spread with, hopefully, some sunflowers left un-cut. It'll be 100°, but I live without AC and am used to it. And we'll stay over for Labor Day to hunt again! Limit is 15/day with 45 posession limit after the first. Peculiar, since before it was 30 after the opener.

Bought a couple boxes of Estate .12s to go with some Winchesters, and will use the Rem 870 my Dad & Mom got me in 1961. I'll have a Stevens 311D SxS .12 for BU (1955).

Half a dozen of us poppin' away in a cow pasture with steaks over a pit and under the stars later. Baby, it's that time again!

Remember the newspaper who published gun-owner records? Poof!


Thursday August 8, 2013, 5:46 pm
The editor of the New York newspaper that created a furor by publishing the names and addresses of gun-permit owners suddenly is out of a job.

According to the Rockland Times, a competitor to the Gannett-owned Rockland County Journal News, editor Caryn McBride is among the casualties of a recent purge at the Journal News.


The Rockland editor said she felt threatened by the complaints, but local police didn’t believe there was a credible threat. McBride and other executives then decided to hire armed guards to protect their property, the Times reported, “causing an uproar due to the perceived hypocrisy of the avowed anti-gun editors hiring gun-toting men.”

...But wait...

The Times also reported that shortly after the publication of the map, authorities said burglars entered the home of one of the gun owners identified by the newspaper, and a gun safe that was on the premises was damaged in a robbery attempt.

We are all hypocrites to a degree. But one shouldn't just get in a hog-waller with it, esp. when the aim of ones game is moral opprobrium.
