Cover 35

Note from the publisher


   A flat tax makes sense


Think of it this way:
   Term limits — the logic behind it

Where I live:
   Guy Smith — he fills the dance floor

Ayoob on firearms:
   Create your own shooting range

   Showing Sheep

   Saurkraut the easy way
   Try making your own granola dirt cheap
   Garlic lovers' delight
   This is one way to make applejack...
   ...and this is Reverend Dr. Hooker's applejack
   Make your own string cheese
   It's damned hot & it's damned good

Just for kids:
   Visit the great prairies

Original poems:
   Annie Duffy
   John Earl Silveira
