    Carl Sagan defined the cosmos as all there ever was and all there ever will be.

    NRA Russia trip included visit to the maker of sniper rifle that threatens U.S. troops

    American gun culture has a split personality: half the time we’re supposed to believe that gun culture is pure American patriotism, and the other half of the time the claim is that citizens need to be heavily armed to take on the American government.
