Ubon Ratchatani is the largest province in Isan, in northeast Thailand. Following the common practice in Thailand, the provincial capital city is also named Ubon Ratchatani. Khao Phansa Day marks the beginning of the rainy season retreat for Buddhist monks. To celebrate this, the Ubon Ratchatani Candle Festival is held in the city every year. Huge wax sculptures are prepared by people from temples throughout the province and paraded through the city

Hi! I read your blog all the time and I love it. However, I was pretty ticked this morning when I saw this: "The Knob Creek machine gun shoot in Kentucky attracts thousands of neo-Nazis and other extremists."

Have you ever been to this shoot? What makes you think it "attracts thousands of neo-Nazis and other extremists?" I've been therfe several times, and it's nothing like that. It's people who love to shoot legally owned automatic weapons in a controlled environment.

Please be sure to know what you're talking about before you add comments.

Jim,
This is a valid complaint. I've never to this shoot, and don't usually handle any kind of guns, for any reason.
However, you'll notice that I simple linked to the article and its sub-title, and without personal comments. So, you can count it as a link that you didn't like.
Sorry about that.

No, my bad. I didn't notice the blue part (the quote I didn't like) at the top of the article. I see now that the quote was not your own. Sorry I misspoke. I'll try to pay more attention next time. Keep up the good work!
