Great column! However, I fear you are preaching to the choir. Even if you weren't, liberals refuse to be confused by facts -- especially when they conflict with ideology. They're on one of their missions to do what they do best -- attack inanimate objects. Their M.O. is always the same -- do anything but address the real issue -- behavior. If they did that, they know the floodgates would open & all their rubber-stamp pardons of behavior, regardless of how perverse or patently murderous, would be subject to review. So they obviously have a vested interest in not facing up to facts since they have this annoying habit of pointing to behavior in the final analysis...and so that subject is taboo in liberal-land -- an otherwise taboo-free zone.
