    Oliver North is merely just another Charlton Heston.

    All situations can be distilled down into 2 principles: Money, and/or ‘Power’. As NRA President, North gets both. He gets some $ (although I don’t know how much). He gets a ‘Power’ trip by being NRA’s anointed. exulted leader, being in the public eye (he certainly enjoyed playing that role during the Iran-Contra hearings), and being able to hobnob with politicians to endorse/rebuff legislation (‘wheeling and dealing”).

    Mao had it almost right:
    “Power flows from the barrel of a gun, AND FROM AN ACCOUNT AT A BANK.”
