The Pamphleteer

During colonial times in America, if you wanted to convince or inform people about some issue that you considered important, you went to the local printer and got some pamphlets printed. You then handed them out, read them to anybody that was interested, nailed them to the town bulletin board, or the nearest tree. The first amendment was specifically written to protect this type of activity and the writers or "pamphleteers".

Saint Maurice

(From Dan, our correspondent in the Commonwealth of Taxachusetts.)

Full Disclosure: The editor has a brother and many cousins named Maurice.

There is a Saint Maurice!

The following comes from The Catholic Encyclopedia at

"St. Maurice is represented as a knight in full armour (sometimes as a
Moor), bearing a standard and a palm; in Italian paintings with a red
cross on his breast, which is the badge of the Sardinian Order of St.

Many places in Switzerland, Piedmont, France, and Germany have chosen him as celestial patron, as have also the dyers, clothmakers, soldiers, swordsmiths, and others. He is invoked against gout, cramps, etc."

If you go here you will find a lot of information and even pictures of
St. Maurice...
