The Art of Manliness is a website that I like to read every now and again. There were two articles of interest tonight. One was an article on why men should carry a handkerchief and the other was on the calling card. The handkerchief is something a person should carry with them all the time, I go one step further and have a bandanna with me as well as the handkerchief. The interesting article was the one on calling cards, there was also a follow up article on Time magazines website too.
US gold had a good article for reading tonight on how gold performs during inflation or deflation.
The hill website had a good article on the current issues with the TSA reporting that airports can opt out of the TSA screening program and contract private screeners for the airports.

The TSA is an overly large bureaucracy that will ultimately fail in its mission and waste many billions more money then need be. The .gov cannot afford to do the things it does now so this would be a very good start not only for savings on the pocketbook, but also a start on reversing this inexcusable intrusion on personal liberty.
