    1. I must confess, I wondered out loud (on my blog) if he was lynched because of anti-gov’t sentiment. (I did caution a commenter to not jump to that conclusion, however.)

      Yet I’m really flabbergasted to hear speculation about this being an open borders crime. Although, recalling some of the notes I have jotted down from previous occasions listening to Hedgecock fill in for Rush, I supposed I shouldn’t be surprised. (I’m fairly certain that Hedgecock was hosting while interviewing Art Laffer somewhere around early ’07, with Laffer saying the United States currently had the greatest economy in the history of human civilization.)

    2. The fact that “Fed” was written on his body and his census ID was taped to him would at least support speculation about anti-government sentiment. I can even understand drug-related speculation, but the borders? That is just plain ridiculous.

    3. Yep. I really wish I had my notes with me at the moment.

      I believe I have jotted down Hedgecock saying something to the effect that global warming in the Arctic will be good for polar bears because they want to be warm, that’s why they have fur. This and the open borders speculation reminds me of something Hendrik Hertzberg wrote:

      “A political ideology is a very handy thing to have. It’s a real time-saver, because it tells you what you think about things you know nothing about.”

    4. He is going to try and link Sparkman’s murder to our border policy.

      Come on, Steven. It is pretty clear, Hedgecock just doesn’t explain it very well.

      The facts: Sparkman is not Native American.

      I think Sparkman is a British name. Thus, at some point, Sparkman’s ancestors “invaded” America by violating our borders.

      Eventually these Sparkmen settled and Bill was born.

      Had the Sparkmen stayed in their home country, this whole murder never would have happened.

      Thus, our lax border policy directly made this unfortunate instance possible.

    5. More reckless speculation


      That’s about Dan Riehl speculation Sparkman was a child molester. I think that moves well beyond reckless and into maliciously defamatory.
