Merry Christmas

For a child is born to us,
a son is given to us.
The government will rest on his shoulders.
And he will be called:
Wonderful Counselor,* Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:6 (New Living Translation)

Making Blades, Toledo Style

Toledo, España, that is. Mark in Mexico shows how it was done back in the 16th century.

It is also somewhat of a buying guide to blades in Mexican markets.

Mark promises a future article on the Damascus steel method; I had thought that method was lost. Stay tuned... I know I will.

Daschle Decides Not to Run

With a tip of the Internet hat to Carol Platt Liebau, here is the announcement a good dozen or so people were waiting for: Tom Daschle is not going to run for President.

I, too, am not going to run.

There. I said it, and I now yield the microphone to the next of the 299,999,900 (give or take) of us with the good sense not to bother running for President to announce his non-plan to a non-caring public.

What's Up In Iraq?

Dunno. But Bill Roggio is there now to help us find out "the rest of the story".
