What's Next?

...Castration because one might be overwhelmed by an inclination to commit rape? Cutting off the hand of someone who might be tempted to steal? You can easily see how I could go on and on with this, but I'll spare ya..

According to State Sen. John Whitmire (D-Houston), the new program to arrest intoxicated Texans in bars whether or not they show any inclination to drive (see Mar. 23) is justified because it nips in the bud potential future misconduct: "Even though a public drunk is not planning on driving, that could change in an instant," he said. "There is certainly potential danger." (Pete Slover, "Lawmakers to review bar busts", Dallas Morning News, Mar. 25). Glenn Reynolds reacts disrespectfully (Mar. 31).

We could arrest any representative or senator because it's only a matter of time before they take a bribe from someone like Abramoff, so let's nip it in the bud and arrest them all.

As Barney Fife always said, "You've got to nip it in the bud!"
