So that there is clear understanding, I claim the right to live. It is not granted to me by international charter or international law. Hell, we can't even get 9 justices to agree to grant it to the littlest of us. But I claim it nonetheless. I do not recognize the right of anyone to take it, not the terrorist and not the mugger. It is the mugger who says, 'your money or your life,' and it is the terrorist who says 'your life because it is the will of Allah,' or something along those lines. I say the mugger and the terrorist have miscalculated. It's my money and my life and both men would best preserve theirs by being somewhere else. I respect the mugger over the terrorist. At least he does not claim divine inspiration for his actions.Nice job, RS. Good to be back in touch. Blog on. Keep the faith.
