Opinions: Oil is in the hands of the bad guys

PATE: A number of problems in the world today spring from one source — oil, black gold, texas tea.

As a driver of a Buick, let me be the first to defend this innocuous little hydrocarbon; oil gets me around on the highway, streams electrons through my power outlets, and fills the air with clouds of pollutants that give Phoenix sunsets that beautiful red tint.

Opinions: Your kids are named Dweezle and Moon Unit?

CEO: We are being too creative when it comes to naming our children and it's just plain immoral. Names like Apple, Orange and Banana just do not cut it. Children are teased enough during their childhood that they do not need a particularly bad name to set them off. If someone in my class was named Apple, and at lunch they were eating an apple, I would point and laugh. They would probably go home crying, and would grow up hating their parents, later to snap and peg their parents with apples to their juicy and bloody end.

Local Limelight: Talking about honky-tonk
The name Plowed Under comes from a poem and picture by Charles Russell, a famous cowboy artist. It was his style and the look of the early West, in general, that inspired the members of the laid back honky-tonk band Plowed Under.

Voice: Life, libertarian and the pursuit of happiness
For me, the road to calling myself a libertarian was a gradual one. It started with reading the libertarian cliché Ayn Rand novels and led to the study of classical liberals like John Stuart Mill. Studying economics was certainly an important catalyst as well. I took from my courses the hard facts of the positive realm and began thinking about my own normative ideas. The major premise I ended with was that government intervention, although always with the best intention, could end up hurting more people than it helps.
