    So what exactly were the British coming to do?

    Here is a hint ..... What Pelosi, Reid and Obama want to





    DISARM the AMERICANS

    "One week later, on April 14th, General Gage received instructions from Secretary of State William Legge, Earl of Dartmouth (dispatched on 27th January), to disarm the rebels, who were known to have hidden weapons in Concord, among other locations, and to imprison the rebellion's leaders, especially Samuel Adams and John Hancock" - Paul Revere - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Both funny in their New Yorker sort of style. The first is a jab at our current lackadaisical attitudes, and the second a (misguided) point that rifles should only be for hunting.

    When we start taking New Yorker cartoons seriously, we're in deep doo doo. Some are funny; some are not. But none is politically important except as a reflection of what New Yorker readers and editors are thinking.

    So fess up: You subscribe to the New Yorker?
