When they battled it out in my day, we didn't have deaths. No, bruises, very rarely a broken bone. If you killed the guy, who were you going to fight with the next time? In that time before school administrations got involved in the minutia of these matters it was just a kids' fight.

Grammar police: One of our local police departments has bumper stickers on the squad cars that read, "Working For Your Quality of Life". How could they botch this? Could have been:

Working For Your Quality Of Life
or
Working for Your Quality of Life

It's like they did it on purpose. GRR.

While "than" and "then;" "there,"  "their," and "they're"; and "your" and "you're" remain a complete mystery, I believe we have far bigger fish to fry.

Great book. This historical review of the first hundred years of the U.S. explains in agonizing detail how our government's philosophical underpinnings are utterly contrary and hostile to religion in general and Catholicism in particular, and recounts our disastrous journey from "the duty-oriented ethic of the Christian story to the rights-oriented ethic of Liberty."
