There's an old saying: "He might be nasty, but at least he's stupid." That brings to mind today's thought: Abolitionists might be obtuse, but at least they're wimps.
I couldn't help noticing that, in a world where we are constantly lectured that the death penalty is becoming extinct, the three nations atop the medal standings in the Olympics all have an active death penalty: the United States (37 medals, 18 gold); China (34 medals, 18 gold); and Japan (19 medals, 2 gold). Meanwhile, those beacons of enlightenment, Norway, Denmark, and Sweden, have a combined total of 6 medals. 0 gold.
Now what does that tell you?
Absolutely nothing, but I try never to miss a chance to annoy the abbies.
