Dear Andy;
Not everyone lives in a converted septic tank with the last 30yrs of Guns & Ammo, 1 large tub of peanut butter, 1 jar of Tang, and a book of recipies on the preperation of "Long Pig". The charecters in "Alas, Babylon" were a accurate portrayl of the people in the late 50's who grew up in a world of Defense Drill", and hide under the desk. It was a look at the better side of what might be, not a training manual. Most people have some skills, some people are fasirly well trained, no-one is 10' tall and bullet-proof. I am sorry that You did not enjoy the book, and found it unrealistic, but the "Stoner" weapon system hadn't passed trial phase yet, and wasn't available for issue. No one carried a subcaliber cut down for concealment, and it painted a rosier picture as to what could have happened, not a testament to the undoing of all civilization. Sorry Rant Off, just feeling a little peevish today, low stupidity tolerance.

People aren't so bad but sometimes its easier to open up and be friendly with folks on the internet. They don't get too close, you can speak your mind and they accept you for your words and thoughts and attitudes - or they don't. We all have friends but our internet friends are sometimes easier.

I haven't seen it mentioned yet, but a fairly good SHTF book (it's SCIENCE FICTION, and is NOT going to be uber-realistic), and VERY politically incorrect for it's time, and even moreso now, was Robert Heinlein's Farnam's Freehold.

It even has Gk's "long pig" eating in it.

After about two of Aherns articles in Petersons Handguns magazine. I called Jan Libourel, whom I had known for quiet awhile, and asked him, what is with this Ahern glowering at the camera.

Jan got Ahern stopped from glowering at the camera. However, Jan parted with Peterson Publishing Company, on unfriendly terms, just after that.

I think Jan's using Ahern, contributed quiet a bit to his acrimonious departure from Peterson Publishing Company.

Where do you think MELVIN gets all of his Dazzlingly-dumb scenarios from?
