      Major Update to OL (please click to open)   02/09/2016

      Sorry for the inconvenience, but we had to update OL and there have been some serious changes made by IPB. The real bad news is that they had to merge User Names and Display Names. This meant that I had to choose between bad and bad. I opted to keep the log-on information the same, so you can get on OL like you always did, but now your User Name is displayed. If your User Name and Display Name were the same, you will not feel the change. If they were different, you are probably irritated right now. I will figure out how you can change this so you can revert to the Display Name you used before if you like, however this may entail a change in how you log-on. The good news is that OL is now searchable from the very beginning. This means all the old posts from the A-Team in Objectivism (and everybody else) will finally show up when you search for something. I will keep changing this announcement as we adapt to these new changes. It's a pain, I know, but after looking around the backend for a bit, I believe the benefits will far, far outweigh the current irritation. They changed things in a hamhanded way and I don't like that, but I can't do anything about it. Benefit-wise, they actually did a good job, so please bear with us. In addition to this change, many good things are coming over time. You are the reason OL exists and I am sorry you have to go through this. Think of it like birth pangs... (All right, all right, that's forcing it.  ) Michael

So, for those who care, my degrees in criminal justice and criminology bring me to work as a private security guard. I've worked for several companies, local, nation, multinational, these ten years. My first father-in-law was a cop in Cleveland when I met him. When he died, he had retired as a captain of detectives. Cleaning out a closet, my ex sent me his last uniform shirt. It hangs proudly in my closet. When he died, I sent this card with flowers: "You check the place out, and if it's safe, I'll join you later."

Law man--I'm afraid you just walked in here at the wrong time

My old man's gun has never been fired

But there's a first time and this could be

This could be the first time

Law man you know you look to be a lot younger than me and

I'd hate to shoot a baby

You've got a long way to go before you're old and slow

And it could be

It could be a good time if you change your mind

Well I'm tired and sweet from making love

And it's just too late

You'll have to wait

Bring your business around here in the morning

Well I've heard your line

And you've heard mine

And I'm just too tired to take a side

Bring your business around here in the morning

Don't you want to be easy look there

Let some of the things you see go on by or

You can burn them into your brain go on home

Don't you see the children, they're just like you

They want everything to be fine but they let it slide

And the laughing lets you know that smiling breaks the rules

Law breaker you know it could be me

And if you had your way we'd all be down

Under the face of a clock that's just too old to be wound

And you can see now the old hands won't move around

One way or the other,

Fool card brother this could be,

This could be, the first time
