A Gathering of Elephants
Richard B. Weldon Jr.

An Early Morning Education
Harry M. Covert

Where does it say in the law – or anywhere else – that good people just oughta give up and let robbers and gun-toting thieves have their way? I mean, shooting, stealing or threatening us and getting away with such conduct.

Then the Dallas assassinations of five police officers brought horror to my heart. And now, Baton Rouge again.
