"Over the last few months, the U.S. has witnessed repeated calls for vengeance, for revenge, punishment, retribution ... for blood. These calls express one of the most disturbing facets of the American 'character,' the Old Testament call for an eye-for-an-eye, a tooth-for-a-tooth. Vengeance haunts 21st century America like a ghost of times long dead." (09/30/11)
