    Prosecutions for political evil-doers would be fantastic, not just here but all over the world. How many dictators who make Cheney look like Captain Kangaroo (and, yes, there are people in the world worse than him -- at least in terms of how they treated their own country -- though I know it's hard to believe) have wound up essentially retiring in resorts. At the exact same time, I totally understand why politicians don't want them -- they could easily suck the air out of their own ambitions, both laudable and selfish, and I even wonder if they would be anything like as salutary as people around here generally assume. There could be strange political blowback from any such wave. On balance, I'd definitely prefer it, but I find the zeal on behalf of it a bit hard to understand, especially at this point.

    Now residing in Van Nuys, but "LaBobsterofVanNuys" isn't funny and besides, Van Nuys is really part of Los Angeles
