"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Mom, I Want One!

Apropos of nothing whatsoever, here's the best-selling boys' toy in 1964, the "Johnny Seven, O.M.A." (One Man Army).   


Several weapons in one: machine gun, grenade launcher, rocket launcher, tripod-mounted rifle and detachable pistol.    Wow!   I never had one of these when I was five years old.   Is it too late?

P.S.  For added fun, take it to school for show-and-tell and watch the ninnies freak!
