"Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public." Do ya need any more proof?!
Elton John has never been a great musician. He had some cleverness in his music and lyrics but most of what he produced is a pale copy of genuine rock'n'roll and its predecessors. I've always thought of Elton John as "wimp rock," even way before I knew he was gay. If you compare Elton's music to the classic Mississippi Delta and Chicago blues and to the classic soul, Motown, Philadelphia, and so on, Elton's music hasn't got a tenth of the guts of genuine American music. He isn't a "has been" because he never was!
What is so damned hard about a single large caliber pistol shot to the back of the head? But if you aren't going to carry out the executions expeditiously, then outlaw the things completely! Two sides of the same coin - justice!

"From each according to his ability, to each according to his his need." What is there to not understand about this implementation of real social justice?
Interesting comment! I think the above person has kept their thinking skills intact. I've often wondered how any sane person who supposedly is a "conservative" can support any politician who claims any sort of link with Ayn Rand. Objectivism's main tenet is "Selfishness is the only usable philosophy."
Keep two things in mind: first, Jon Meis was a trained site monitor - he had the pepper spray because it was issued to him as a means of keeping the peace, and he was trained in such activity by the school. Second, this was a Christian school - John 15:13, "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."
