I'd have to say that the thought of being able to weed out some of the stupid, morally inept, and just plain bad people that I come into contact with, without the threat of reprisal, is quite appealing at times. The big question is, do you or I have the authority to be judge, jury, and executioner? Iíd like to think that Iíd use that power wisely, but history shows that once someone goes down that path where they think that they are better than others then there is an almost certain inevitability of going overboard. So what happens when you run out of rapists or killers or child molesters? Do you start going for the burglarís or the car thieves? Maybe shoplifters or traffic offenders? Itís a tough call to make, but I am with you in the aspect of if I had to, and I had my choice, I know where Iíd start. Later, Me.
