    I think whipping serves a legitimate corrective purpose. I just disagree with the "crimes" for which it is prescribed.

    Stick his pecker in acid.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    If justice lowers its levels to that extent, then we may as well toss millenia of civilization and development - return to the cave man days.
    Iran or the Islamic world may do this (an eye for an eye), but I hope we never do.
    In the past, I have thought that something like this is attempted murder and that the man should be hung for even trying to murder another.
    Even this has been tempered.

    Oh come on, where's your sense of fun?

    We could totally make a kick ass reality TV show out of it.

    We'll call it "An Eye For an Eye with Alex Trebec".

    I think Gordon Brown would do well on a show like that.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Jesus, if Gordon Brown Hosted a show It'd probably be called

    "The One Eyed Scotsman puts people to sleep hour".

    Somehow I think any show that begins with 'The one eyed' would be kinda gay.
