The writings of Kent McManigal. Just about everything I write from my hard-core libertarian/anarchist perspective will end up here. I also write a weekly column for the Clovis News Journal, as well as sporadic columns elsewhere. Enjoy!

Do you know what the above is? It's an environmental disaster- according to the feds. Mercury contamination! Sharp edges! Plastic! Yet, it wouldn't have happened if not for the feds and their silly meddling in the market.
As I was biking around town I happened to see this broken CFL (compact fluorescent light) beside the curb. No HAZMAT team was scurrying around trying to cordon off the area. I was in such horrific danger but no one came to rescue me. So I stopped to take a picture. Should I have sent this to MSNBC so they could send a team to interview the survivors? I neeeed to tell them how I feeeel about it.
I assume this is still there, if anyone wants to come save us. Or, I might use my mighty grabber tool and pick it up and illegally put it in a dumpster- if it's still there- next time I pass by.
