Seth no longer approves or disapproves, he reports. :{D

Of course, he's reporting that although you can buy a gun, it's much harder to get a concealed carry permit cause sheriff's offices have suspended their permitting operations due to lack of protective equipment. Close contact is required for fingerprinting and photography.

His reportage is surprisingly good too. Always to the point, informative and restrained in style. No hint of the hectoring rants of a raving lunatic from the very extreme right wing libertarian fringe he is notorious for on various forums.

What's his website? I thought it was "The Broadside" or something like that but I can't find it now.
Yeah well that's just, like, your opinion, man.

"The Broadside" got broadsided many years ago when The Gazette (Colorado Springs), which hosted his, and several other blogs, was acquired by some other media company. Seth has landed a paid position with what is a section of the same newspaper (if my unreliable memory has not misled me yet again). That section's name is Complete Colorado Page 2.

Any idea what his real name is, or his nom de plume? I never knew.

Guy named Jay Stooksberry sounds a bit like him.

His nom de plume is Seth Richardson.

His writing has improved quite a bit, especially in eliminating the slant of his earlier pieces. At first, he had a tendency toward loaded language.

It's certainly an improvement over his opinion pieces, and I've not seen him trolling online anywhere, although I haven't really looked. :{D
