Letter: Remember the Good Old Days...

Remember the Good Old Days...

when we settled the West with Peacemakers?

Those old boys kept their traps shut and looked

damn sullen to themselves in the saloon

because they were all fully-armed

and such was the nature of rational discourse

that nobody opened up because

he didn't want his mouth full of lead.

Now we're more liberal and progressive

and carry concealed weapons

so nobody can detect how well protected we are

in the sanctity of our own homes and offices on wheels

no horses in wide open spaces

and everybody but the Sheriff is armed to the teeth

so children can blast away at other children in the dark.
