I have but one word to describe John Connor's guest editorial in American Handgunner,--BRILLIANT! This is the kind of from-the-gut, soul-wrenching passion for embodying the American spirit of boldness--believing what is right and standing for your beliefs, disdaining cowardice and championing moral courage--that makes me eagerly await every issue of Handgunner. Connor first got my attention as a writer and a man of purpose with his Little Lizzie installments, after which I was compelled by his manly example to write my first ever letter to a magazine of any kind. Since then, although Handgunner employs the most uniformly superior group of contributing editors and journalists in the industry, I'm torn with each new issue between reading Guncrank first--or saving it for last because it will be two months before Handgunner comes around again. Please do not stop taking on the hard questions and dissenters, and please do not let the pervasive tentacles of political correctness wind their way into your great publication. Bar the door at any cost or close it for good.
Reader George Missbach, of Atlanta just sent me a wall plaque. It says: "Political correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end." The plaque is on my office wall now and I reread it every day to remind me there is no clean end on a turd. Editor
