The Mean Opinion – Gun Control

Arriving at a consensus by averaging only the outliers.

I’ve been hearing a lot of talk about gun control lately, but being no politico myself I didn’t have a good idea of the different sides to the issue.

Not professional quality book reviews, mind you, but a rambling collection of my thoughts on what I’ve read. I was going to do a piece on The Princess Bride for this week (I finished it about two weeks ago), and then finished the next book I was reading, and then a quick graphic novel. So I’m reviewing all three, but I’ll post them individually over the next few days instead of in one lump. So, in the order I read them, let’s begin.
