    yes, right and wrong is always ranked. Criminal A only killed one person. B several. One is worse than the other, but do we say that A is OK? Or do we still punish, fitting the punishment to the crime?

    This is not hard, controversial, or even anti patriotic. Believe it or not, we don't do soldiers any favors excusing their bad behavior. A soldier who did see war taught me that. Humans need limits, and need to know there are lines we don't cross.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    If marines killed my wife I wouldn't care what they did with her body later. The only important thing would be that they killed her. She would then be like you, me and everyone else after the brain stops functioning, a hunk of rotting meat. Not pleasant to contemplate I know but it is a fact.
