    The Dershowitz problem is not at all partisan. It is taught at our leading law schools.

    If the world was about to end, and the only way to save the world was to have wild, passionate sex with jack Hayes, would you do it? Now don't change the question, and any failure to answer either yes or no means you are cowardly running away from the question, so which is it, yes or no.

    Then I guess its a bad day for a million people. As for your assessment of how governments would act., so what? The scenario itself would never happen in the real world either so your point is moot.
