A prize piece of nuttiness: "The FBI recently reported that the United States is facing a wave of murders and gun violence. Cities across the country are seeing significant increases in violent crime. In Boston, the number of homicides is threatening to eclipse last year's numbers, which were already the worst in a decade. These statistics prove that the current approach to reducing violence isn't working. ... A bill before Congress would establish a US Department of Peace. This measure would provide practical, nonviolent solutions for the problems of domestic and international conflict. It would apply the institutional heft of the US government to a serious effort not merely at avoiding war or waging war more effectively. It would take America to the next evolutionary step: It would proactively wage peace."

Ted Nugent's signature guitar doubles as gun: "Ed Roman's Quicksilver Guitars, the world's largest guitar store & builder of custom guitars, today announced that the company has completed the custom design, development and construction of a new custom guitar for world famous rocker, hunter and statesman Ted Nugent. Nugent, known for his hard hitting rock 'n' roll, as well as his strong support for the right to bear arms, his conservative lifestyle and love of his country, is one of Ed Roman's primary influences. 'We are proud to have had the opportunity to work with Ted again and to produce this truly unique instrument and piece of rock 'n' roll history,' said Ed Roman, founder of Ed Roman Guitars. 'Not only is this a top-of-the-line guitar, it is a precision firearm."
