Either way, rest assured there is a CRISIS!!! The repression, the laxity of standards, are - simultaneously - absolutely unmatched, nay, unparalleled in all of human history.

I think you ought to forward that email to the Library board of trustees, or at least the town council. At the very least, it might instill in your future correspondents the desire to at least present an appearance of civility.

Plug Brownwood, Texas into Mapquest and you'll get some idea why the guy's so ill-tempered.

The place is nowheres-ville, daddio. Not excusing it, but I'd be ornery too.

As an example of just how close we are to concentration camps for illegal immigrants, check out this article in the poorly funded, underground, anti-establishment rag THE WALL STREET JOURNAL.

Read my comments about Miniter's WSJ editorial here.

I think we're only a couple decades, at that, from some form of secession. If you think I'm being alarmist, check out this article, which contains this choice quote from CA State Senator Vasconcellos:

"Since we stole [the southwest U.S.] from [Mexico], why do you say it’s unfair to steal it back from us?"

But, I guess it couldn't happen here, right? I mean, the U.S. is just going to stay the same as it always has, and any examples from world history mean nothing.
