Inspection- No, Guns Did NOT “Tame the West”

by Ken Carman

 Yes, that’s right: guns did not tame the West. Guns made the West a more dangerous place. Guns made it so gunslingers could terrorize towns. Guns made it so many establishments had Inspectionpatrons check their guns at the door. Guns made it so sheriffs had to be replaced again and again, gangs could kill many people just to rob a bank, a train. Guns made it so such marauders had to be hunted down by other deputized gangs.

Inspection- Absence Makes the Mind…

by Ken Carman

 The old cliché’ about absence making the heart grow fonder is, of course, nonsense. It can, or absence can make things far worse: depends on the relationship, depends on the Inspectionindividuals; depends on those who consider themselves ‘friends.’ “Friends” may not offer the best advice or the best examples. And I suspect absence sometimes makes the metaphorical heart, and not so metaphorical mind, shrink.
 There’s an absence these days of actual conversations, in depth discussion, complex thought, and an ability to even read communications, that helps all strive towards a mutual goal.
