"Pretend you’re at church for Morning Worship, or attending a crowded lecture, or watching Hollywood’s latest with a few hundred other fans. Suddenly, a SWAT team breaks down the door, submachine guns at the ready. Amid screams, their commander shouts, 'Listen up! We’re gonna kill 10% of you -- but the mayor was very clear that we gotta be fair about it. So, how ya wanna do this? ...' Yep, this is insane. Ditto if the mayor merely commanded the SWATters to rape rather than murder 10% of the audience. There is no 'fair' way to commit such heinous crimes." (08/24/11)
