Well, it's been a month of thrilling victories and agonizing defeats on the long road from from the regional openers through the sweet sixteen and the final four to our final matchup between upstart 47th state New Mexico and old-school colonial Maryland; between the fifth-largest state in the union and the state with the fifth largest population density.

And for this round only, I'll do something I haven't done in all the rest of the tournament. I'll vote myself.

So here's my vote for the best flag of the U.S. States and Territories!

South Carolina

Unfortunately, all y'all didn't even let it into the Elite Eight, so I guess I'll do like everybody else and cast my vote from the choices I have available.


But that's just my vote!

So, with no further ado....

the winner of the March Madness U.S. States and Territories Flag Tournament is......

New Mexico defeats Maryland, 21 - 13!!!

Congratulations to the good folks of New Mexico and thanks to everybody who played along with my goofy little project.  Here's one last look at the bracket.  Hope you had a great March!

ATF-Fast and Furious

Those of you who read my blog will note that I am not often critical of law enforcement - however people have been appropriately critical of ATF with their handling of situations that went horribly wrong (such as Waco-Branch Dravidians). Those of you who know me personally know that I recently ran a multi- agency federal-state-counties-cities task force targeting Asian Organized Crime. ATF provided my group a lot of manpower and equipment and some very good special agents. We bought a lot of machine guns on the streets of Los Angeles from organized crime - but I can't imagine a situation where we would have SOLD machine guns such that they would have "walked" from the point of sale from the US and into the hands of narcotics cartels in Mexico. Just because you can do something does not mean that you should.
(CBS NEWS - LINK) "Documents show the inevitable result: The guns that ATF let gobegan showing up at crime scenes in Mexico. And as ATF stood by watching thousands of weapons hit the streets... the Fast and Furious group supervisor noted the escalating Mexican violence.
One e-mail noted, "958 killed in March 2010 ... most violent month since 2005." The same e-mail notes: "Our subjects purchased 359 firearms during March alone," including "numerous Barrett .50 caliber rifles."
Dodson feels that ATF was partly to blame for the escalating violence in Mexico and on the border. "I even asked them if they could see the correlation between the two," he said. "The more our guys buy, the more violence we're having down there."

What is the Obama Justice Department thinking?

Johnny Quest - The Cartoon

When I was a kid my favorite cartoon (ok, it tied with the Road Runner) was Johnny Quest. In the video clip below, Joe Barbera talks about his vision for the series and about how it all began in the 1960's.

They had very cool gadgets, the adventures had a flare of realism. There were underwater habitats, advanced aircraft and different venues and I never tired of Jonny Quest. The cartoon became one of the main targets of parental watchdog groups such as the radical liberal organization, Action for Children's Television (ACT), for its multiple onscreen deaths, murder attempts, use of firearms and deadly weapons and tense moments. Reruns were taken off the air in 1972, but returned to Saturday morning, in edited form.

Yes, I could turn this to a rant against political correctness and liberal whackos, but it wouldn't do any good. All of the episodes are on YouTube and you can watch them there in their original form - as you can with Road Runner cartoons. I really don't understand it at a gut level, but liberal activists really enjoy taking fun out of everything. My response (as a young man as now) is to tell them to go to hell. Then again if you were politically correct, you wouldn't be reading my blog.
