In the circles we run in, Nat-Wu, Adam and myself are well known for sending articles around to each other for comment and discussion. In fact, that's one of the reasons I started this blog, so we'd have a "central" location to discuss things of interest to us (little did I know the fame it would bring us!) Only a small percentage of what we send to each other ends up on this blog, but that doesn't mean we don't have anything to say. For example, here's our e-mail exchange over an article reporting how a Texas man was killed by a vengeful crowd after the car he was in struck a little girl:
Adam (in a comment sent with the article): "Texas Justice!"
Nat-Wu: "Ah, Jesus."
Xanthippas: "Jesus, he didn't even kill the kid. What the f$#%?"
Xanthippas: "Oh, and they didn't even kill the driver. They killed the passenger!!"
Nat-Wu: "Exactly, Texas justice."
And yet, we're proud of our state. I offer no explanation.
