    The Coach and Horses

    A guide to British pubs by Adam Edwards

    When my friend Rory heard that I was in Shrewsbury, he urged me to hurry to the pub in Swan Hill.
    discount ray bans No further words were needed. I set off for our Mecca.

    Number 23a is the birthplace of Ian Hunter, the Ray Ban wearing front man of Mott the Hoople, the seminal 1970s rock band. (The address is also the title of a Hoople song.)

    But a conundrum greeted my pilgrimage to the narrow Georgian back street. Hunter’s old house is closely sandwiched between two pubs, The Admiral Benbow and The Coach and Horses. Which, I wondered, was the boozer where the young Dylanesque singer learned his trade in dissipation?

    My choice was determined by the fact that the Benbow was shut at lunchtimes. It is common knowledge that old time rock ‘n’ rollers drank all day, so the Coach had to be my Jerusalem.

    It is a fine panelled boozer, with a classic Victorian interior that has been partially stripped out, leaving behind a high wooden bar, a snug and red drapes.

    I ordered a pint of Shropshire Gold and a bacon bap and sat at a small cast iron table with a wooden top, into which was set a tiny brass plaque.

    It was honouring "Ras". Perhaps it was the nickname of Mick Ralphs, the band’s guitarist.

    I sank my bitter and soaked up the atmosphere. This is what it must have been like for the boys, I thought. But when I asked the
    discount ray bans landlord if many Hoople pilgrims came to his pub, he said: "Mott the Who?" I didn’t need a second pint.

    The Benbow was the real thing, after all. I tried again to push open
    replica ray ban sunglasses its door. It didn’t yield, but there was a notice in its window. It read: "No entry to under 30s."

    ‘Thank heavens the man has moved to Los Angeles,’ I later told a subdued Rory. ‘Swan Hill is no longer the place for a man who sung about ‘all the young
    cheap ray bans dudes’.'Articles Connexes:

    Tea Party Holds ‘Great Gun Giveaway’

    Warren and Ostendorff report: "The Asheville Tea Party is taking heat over plans to raise money with the raffle of a semiautomatic rifle similar to one
    discount ray bans used in the Connecticut school shootings that killed 20 children."

    Images from a flyer that advertises an Asheville Tea Party fundraiser that includes the raffle of a rifle similar to the one used in the Newtown, Conn. massacre Friday.

    An announcement about the raffle, which the group is calling The Great Gun Giveaway, was posted Monday on the group’s website. Also posted Monday were several articles on why gun control and gun free zones, including gun free schools, don’t work. Along with the articles were photographs of gun toting Israeli schoolteachers on field trips.

    Among the critics was Huffington Post blogger Leah Griesmann, a part time Asheville resident who works as a writing instructor at San Jose State University. In a post Tuesday on the New York based online news site, she wrote, "As the nation mourns the horrifying mass shooting of children and staff at Sandy Hook Elementary School, the Asheville, North Carolina Tea Party has posted a new flyer advertising their upcoming fundraiser The Great Gun Giveaway.

    "Without a word of sympathy for the victims, the group’s website also offers as a solution to future mass shootings an article urging teachers to carry and gun free zones to be banned."

    Asheville Tea Party chairwoman Jane Bilello said the fundraiser was planned before Friday’s massacre, which
    cheap ray bans claimed the lives of 20 students and six staff members at the school. The gunman also killed his mother and himself.

    "I can understand their initial reaction," Bilello, a retired teacher, said of critics’ assertion the fundraiser and accompanying articles were insensitive. "We’re taking flak, that’s fine. If anything, this brings this issue to the surface.

    Because of federal laws banning guns at schools, Bilello said, "Anybody on a campus is a sitting
    fake ray bans duck. Nobody there has any way to protect themselves."

    In a telephone interview Tuesday, Griesmann said she was "shocked and horrified" when she saw the fundraiser announcement on the tea party’s website. She said she checked the site
    cheap ray ban outlet because she remembered a previous fundraiser sponsored by the group called a Machine Gun Social, in which tickets were sold for a chance to fire an Uzi.

    "The timing seems so clear," Griesmann said. "It was obviously in response to the shootings. Theirs is the only website I’ve seen without a word of sympathy."

    Two guns will be raffled at the fundraiser, including an AR15 semiautomatic .223 caliber rifle similar to one used by Adam Lanza to kill his victims at Sandy Hook. The rifle includes two 30 round clips and a carrying case with a total value of $1,500. Tickets are $20 each, with a maximum of 200 tickets sold.

    Also to be raffled is a .22 Magnum pistol with a 30 round clip with a value of $415. Tickets are $10 each with a cap at 200 tickets.

    Chris Cooper, a political scientist at Western Carolina University, noted that the National Rifle Association took down its Facebook page and Twitter account after the Sandy Hook tragedy.

    "I think if you have the pre eminent gun rights group in the country stepping back, at least temporarily, it’s a bit surprising the local tea party chapter would do the opposite," he said.

    The NRA, late Tuesday, said it was "prepared to offer meaningful contributions" to prevent similar tragedies.

    Firearms instructor and training counselor Bob Plyler of Asheville said there is nothing wrong with raffling a gun. Hunt clubs and other groups do it all the time.Articles Connexes:
