Never provoke or throw the first blow. But once your opponent does throw the first blow, break him, make sure he can't get off the ground without an ambulance. Never kill. But there is no shame in making sure that someone who has done harm can never hurt anyone ever again.
Village Idiot makes Digby
It gives me no joy to point out that the Village Idiot got substantial mention yesterday on Digby's blog, though I guess I can take small consolation that PFAW, PrideDEPOT and Boise's Jody May-Chang are tracking his relentless dimwitted pushing of his American Taliban agenda.
Hmm, the rest of America got Bryan Fishwrap and the VI position here in Idaho was filled by Wayne Hoffmann, who is merely economically drain-bammaged. Not the best of trades, but certainly not the worst possible outcome.
