    After 30 years, scientists prove why alcohol is fun
    The findings of the scientists clearly prove the daftness of Ms Shortall's latest extortion exercise.
    Thus all which you call Sin, Destruction—in brief, Evil—that is my true element.

    On the reasonable force law Shatter said, "But if you saw someone, for example, in your front garden, and decided simply to take aim and fire - in no circumstances would that be appropriate unless that individual themselves was, by their conduct, posing a very severe threat."

    Or to put it in non legal terms, if he's a traveller.

    One could argue that an aspiring politician walking through your garden to canvas for a vote is posing a severe threat..

    Shoot at an Irish politician and you risk killing yourself with the ricochet.

    The Indo has a link to a story about the yanks being up in arms about some celeb who made comments about 911. Clicking it got me to this :-

    Brendan Howlin, the Jim Hacker of Irish politics, invited submissions from the public on measures he could take to save money. One proposal stands head and shoulders above the rest :-

    “Instead of locking up individuals for petty crime such as non-payment of TV licences, dress them in a green jumpsuit and give them hours of community service such as assisting in old people’s homes, sweeping streets, etc.” My emphasis.

    Primo Levi wrote a short story about a helmet that could record the wearers thoughts and feelings. The recording could then be played back to someone wearing another helmet and that person would experience the recorded event exactly as the first person did.

    I would love to have such a device with a recording of that submission being written. I'd love to know what sort of thought processes could lead someone to think that elderly people would be happy to willingly allow known criminals into their homes.

    Headline writer has feet up enjoying a few drinks tonight. Opportunities like that don't come along very often.
