Regarding the Peeping Tom
My understanding is that three adult men in the family chased down the creep and beat the living crap out of him. At the least they can be faulted for overreacting; on the face of it it's vigilantism and taking the law into your own hands. To beat a naked man so severely, even if he was on your property outside your window and ogling your daughters/sisters, that he must be taken to the hospital in critical condition is not, in my opinion, something that a civilized society should tolerate. It says a great deal about the readiness to do violence and the willingness to perform it. Subdue him, yes, beat him to within an inch of his life, no.
Perhaps the charges against the male family members will be dropped eventually, but they should definitely be brought. Violence should not be lauded, whomever it comes from. It begets yet more violence.
Am I the only one who thinks that the arroyos are Albq.'s way to prove Darwin's theories?
OBTW - Nope, you are not the only one.
Instead of commercializing CNM, why not increase the property tax levy on businesses (not homes), since they all benefit from the educated employees in one way or another...? (Welcome to the Walmart School of Screwed-Over Employees and Small Businesses....)
It's like the 20% of the property tax that home owners get to pay for indigent care - why aren't employers who don't provide health care be required to chip in more?
Darwin's theory should be proven with the kids' parents, not the kids. It's a tough childhood if a ditch is your playground. Achhh...
