    But the argument might work better with multiple examples -- the many people who have done stuff like this for these reasons.  Because in any and every individual case, the perpetrators are vile murderous asshats (just like Americans are when we go blow people away).  To show tendency, a spread of cases have more power...

      thanks. you're right about a spread of cases.

      and yet the case is made every day here in the stories people tell... funny how local we are.

      smooches.

      •  what I wondered... (0+ / 0-)

        was why individual acts seem to resonate differently.  They do though, nothing says breaking point like the murder of some poor stranger, on a personal scale.

        On the other hand, the Mail this morning wrote that 200 young men from the "English Defense League" are now demonstrating (a kind word) in Woolwich.   Badness all around.
