DEBATE AT LOLITA BAR: "Should Gun Control Be Abolished?"

Will Snyder and Richard Ryan debate the question “Should Gun Control Be Abolished?” (with Bernadette Malone moderating and Todd Seavey hosting) at the next Jinx Athenaeum, Wednesday, March 1 at 8pm, downstairs at Lolita bar (free admission, cash bar) on the northeast corner of Broome and Allen on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, one block south and three west of the Delancey St. subway stop. (Volunteers to debate specific future topics, especially if you have a willing, serious opponent, are welcome.)

There will be Q&A, though Cheney jokes should be limited to one per audience member.

P.S. If you’re a conservative in media and would like to be on a separate, unrelated invite list for a monthly gathering at Slainte bar (and aren’t already), let me know.

But to compensate for my defense of (aspects of) modernity, here are two new blogs by one of our February Jinx debaters, John Crouch, about shoring up the old institution of marriage:
