Guest Column by Thomas L. Knapp: What’s There to “Grapple” With?

Florida law and SCOTUS rulings conflict over the matter of life sentences for minors.  The courts and the politicians and the prosecutors and the defenders are all tangled up in what to do about that.

HELP WANTED: Any ‘Big L’ Libertarian Bloggers Out There?

This post is a bit “off topic” but I wanted to reach out to some of my friends within the Libertarian Party and the liberty movement as a whole.
