While in the Black Hills, a part of the country where freedom and individualism are still cherished, I saw a bumper sticker:
“Gun Control is not about guns. It’s about control.”
Since I was reading Mark Levin’s bestseller Liberty and Tyranny, it struck a chord. More about the book when I finish.

From Del, a Marine buddy:
Here's one of the stories of the war that of course no one ever heard at the time. And it's special in that it highlights the great performance of South Vietnamese Marines in battle; the forces of the South so seldom ever get credit for how well they fought in the years 1968-75.
In Ride the Thunder, Richard Botkin breaks new ground in telling the heroic story of a few American and Vietnamese Marines who fought brilliantly and turned the tide of the Vietnam War, only to have policymakers surrender the battlefield. Botkin recounts the exploits of the American Marines and their Vietnamese allies who were largely responsible for thwarting the North Vietnamese invasion of the northern portions of South Vietnam—known as the 'Easter Offensive of 1972' in the West3that was intended to bring the nation to its knees. These are the men who 'rode the thunder' and almost saved a nation. Botkin tells the story of Captain John Ripley's daring raid to destroy the Dong Ha Bridge; Major Le Ba Binh and his seven hundred Marines bravely holding off more than 20 thousand North Vietnamese troops; Lieutenant Colonel Gerry Turley's leadership and bravery that helped thwart the Easter Offensive—and much more.
