Idiocy undaunted by reality

Tom Ferrick is either an Epsilon-minus semi-moron, or he's a shrewd practitioner of Josef Goebbels' art of propaganda. Goebbels knew that if you tell a lie big enough, long enough - eventually it becomes fact.

Mr. Ferrick, a columnist for the Philadelphia Inquirer, keeps playing the one string he knows how to play - gun control - as the answer to Philly's violence epidemic.

Despite the fact that there is no evidence to support his assertion that his policy prescription will ameliorate the situation in our poorer neighborhoods and despite the mountain of evidence that gun-control has failed utterly everywhere and in every manner it has been attempted, he just keeps on playing.

Tom Ferrick: King of the one-string guitar. Would that he were around for 'One Night Only'.
