ENDNOTE: Dunkin Donuts as a vital to catching the Boston Bombers?

Yeah, the lockdown has significant implications. The donut part is just funny!

security theater, martial law, and a tale that trumps every cop-and-donut joke you’ve ever heard

First, just in case it’s not utterly obvious, I’m glad that the two murderous cowards who attacked civilians in Boston recently are off the streets. One dead

*** and ***

But the Boston police didn’t shut down an entire city. They shut down an entire city except for the donut shops.

boston.com “Law enforcement asked Dunkin’ Donuts to keep restaurants open in locked-down communities to provide… food to police… including in Watertown, the focus of the search for the bombing suspect.”

Now, I’m sorry, as a little L libertarian, I object to the “lockdown”, but I find irony and humor in Dunkin Donuts as a vital neighborhood service.

Surely this makes you laff and cry in the same instant?

Virginia official: going to jail may be strategy against HHS mandate
CWN – January 11, 2013

Ken Cuccinelli, a pro-life Catholic who serves as Virginia’s attorney general, has told a radio show host that going to jail may be an effective strategy to oppose the HHS mandate.

“Abraham Lincoln has many good quotes, but one of them is ‘The best way to get rid of a bad law is to enforce it vigorously,’” said Cuccinelli, a gubernatorial candidate. Going to jail would “provide an example of what tyranny means when it’s played to its logical conclusion.”

[JR: Well, we are going to find out who has "huevos muchos grande"! Think of the Civil Rights leaders of the 60's and what they endured to insist on their human rights. Will "Catholics" be found wanting? Will others of "good will" join, if for no other reason than to preserve their First Amendment rights? Will Holy Mother Church finally discipline CINO politicians? Will this be the battle that turns us away from the "Secular Progressive" view of the world and return us to the great American experiment? Or is this the end! What brings people to the streets? I don't know. ]
