So, we've killed him. Do we all feel better now?
NO! How can you feel better after killing someone?
Don't you think it's a little weird that we punish murder with murder??

Don't get me wrong...Tim McVeigh deserves to pay for his crimes but in jail behind bars. Wouldn't we like to study him so that our society doesn't produce any more of these demented creatures.

You realize that we did this to him??
We have to start taking responsibility for the ethical positions we take and the values we teach our kids...many we never mean to pass on but do through our own actions.
We say family is important but more than half of marriages end in divorce.
We say education is important but we'll watch 30 hours of TV a week and not spend one helping our kids with homework.
We say we're against violence but we hit our kids.
I have so much to do I'm almost paralyzed. It's hard to figure out what to do first...it all has to get done. I'm on vacation this week so that I can get a few things accomplished. The biggest, finding a house. Eventhought this isn't a real vacation, one where you get to relax, it's still exciting. When we get back it'll only be about six before we move.
