Lest anyone wonder why Refdesk is, in my view, one of the best sites ever-- I offer the following from its featured 'thought of the day':
"A time will come when a politician who has willfully made war and promoted international dissension will be as sure of the dock and much surer of the noose than a private homicide. It is not reasonable that those who gamble with men's lives should not stake their own." - H.G. Wells
Yes it's a quote--but the choice speaks volumes about the sensibility of the chooser.
