Once upon a time, when I was an undergrad pursuing my dual major by doing things like comparative translations of texts concerning Abraham in the Quran and the Hebrew Testament1, discussions like these at Punishment Theory were what I expected to participate in once I got to law school.
Instead, I got the "Socratic" method which dumbs down the classroom to an amazing degree. Arrggg. By the time law school had ended my intellect had dropped to the level which I now inflict upon those of you unfortunate enough to read my blawg.
BTW - if anybody from Punishment Theory drops by here, please, PLEASE change the font. The page is very difficult to read.
