“Snapshots” of Islam Offensive  In his latest effort (Northern Express Nov. 23 - Nov. 29, 2015,) David Kachadurian provides a jumble of FYI disclosures pertaining to Islam and Muslim societies, and posing as if providing a public service announcement, he advises the readers to ponder their import and to “make of them what you will.”

Not Another War To these people who believe we need to be at war in the Middle East all the time: try thinking about getting the countries that are in the area to take care of these bad guys instead of us. We are almost in constant war and have been as long as most can remember...

The Unvaccinated Are Punished Pulling healthy children from school due to a so called “outbreak” of a mild childhood illness isn’t for the safety of the community, as we’re being led to believe.

Racers: Rev up for the Pintwood Derby
Remember those happy days of youth, competing in the Cub Scout’s Pinewood
Derby with a homemade, gravity-powered race car?
No? Well, now is your chance to get a taste of what you missed with the
Pintwood Derby racing series at the Right Brain Brewery in TC’s Warehouse
District between Jan. 27-April 14.
Like the original Pinewood Derby created by Cubmaster Don Murphy in 1953,
competitors will construct their very own RBB Pintwood Derby car out of a
block of wood (pine), plastic wheels and metal axles and then race it on
our gravity powered race track. 
Racers ages 21 and up can register solo or on a team of up to four people
for a chance to build and race a RBB Pintwood Derby car.  Races will take
place at Right Brain Brewery, located in the Warehouse District, every
Wednesday night beginning at 7 p.m. beginning January 27.  Each race will
count for points toward The RBB Beer Cup series championship.  In
addition, weekly cash prizes will be awarded. 
The event is co-partnered by Tjc Design Studio (which is creating the race
track) and Targeted Reach. Car kits are available at the Right Brain for
$25. Race fees are $5 per week. For the rules & regs, go to
