    Actually, I do blame the car for the DUI. It bothers me, being a fan of dknirnig but not having a car, when people attack dknirnig instead of attacking the weapon. Cars kill! Hands off my beer!I read about the killer in PA. Thinking about posting about it. I think you’re combining two separate issues: punishment and letting someone out of jail. The problem is we’ve got 2 million people locked up. They’re almost all going to get out. And most of them will commit crimes again and end up back behind bars. But no, I don’t think all prisoners should be granted life sentences. Maybe we need to rethink our notion of punishment. Bring back flogging or something…
