What I Can't, and Can, Control

My latest column is now live, it begins:
Seeing these Congressional hearings or Presidential speeches can make someone batty. Fortunately, I avoid them. What good would they do? Would they "inform" me of something important happening? I suppose, but so would a short news article or two after-the-fact. Why glue myself to the live coverage as if its all that mattered? In reality, it's unimportant because I have no control over it.

What I Know and What I Don't Know

My column from Monday, forgot to share, it begins:
I've found myself getting frustrated lately due to assumptions I've made regarding my convictions, mostly religious. I've gotten ahead of myself and wound up confused and dissatisfied with where things were going. It's time to take a step back and reassess my knowledge banks; to really dig into my mind and categorize everything (okay, a fraction of everything) into two lists: what I know, and what I don't know.

LPL - April 2013 Update

As of the end of April 2013, 135 libertarian and economics books have been made available in large print at LargePrintLiberty.com. LPL ended the month of March 2013 with 135 offerings.

Through the end of April, 285 books sold in the US, Europe, and Great Britain. Ludwig von Mises' The Anti-Capitalist Mentalitysold the most at 33 copies; followed by Murray Rothbard's For a New Liberty at 21 copies, and Walter Block's Defending the Undefendable at 19 copies. Of the 285 books that have sold, 191 copies went to the US (dollars), 65 copies went to Great Britain (pounds), and 29 copies went to mainland Europe (euros).

My progress on the Journal of Libertarian Studies is at a stand-still at the moment. I've made available 11 volumes in large print. I will not be making available regular print as per the agreement with my printer.
