The New York Times has a couple of interesting ones today. First, death row prisoners apparently have gained standing to sue because lethal injection is too painful, and would violate the 8th Amendment. OK, we'll bring back hanging and shooting squads, two methods that the Founders used and felt were neither cruel nor unusual. Not quite sure the prisoners will like it, but have it your way....
Next, archeologists apparently believe that since the ruins of ancient Edom haven't all been uncovered, that society didn't exist, but that the discovery of a large copper smelter gives a hope that it did. Obviously, if you don't find large cities, you know that area couldn't possibly field an army capable of attacking Israel.
Which is why, of course, the Sioux never were able to field forces capable, say, of annihilating Custer. Never happened, of course, since they had no forges or large cities. This also explains why the Mongols never threatened to overrun Europe, and the Huns never threatened the Vatican, and Israel never conquered Canaan. No nation living in tents ever was capable of bothering its neighbors.
Methinks the logic of these archeologists needs a little bit of work.
