i used to work at a company that did typesetting and graphics. over the desk of one of my co-workers was a sign that was meant to warn against the dangers of careless typing and proofreading - and also intended to shock and amuse. the sign read:
THE PENIS MIGHTIER
THAN THE SWORD
i always found it disturbing - and all too true!
i don't know what made me think of that just now.
and i know - guns don't kill people - people kill people - and that could apply to this as well.
How long, LORD, must I call for help, but you do not listen?
Or cry out to you, “Violence!” but you do not save?
Why do you make me look at injustice?
Why do you tolerate wrongdoing?...
Therefore the law is paralyzed, and justice never prevails....
