bloodthirsty children

We gave a ride to Iris Uber Alles's fellow first grader, a child addicted to asking strange questions. "Iris, would you rather stick needles in your eyes or kill someone and go to jail?"

"I would kill someone, but only go to jail for a moment."

This talk of death inspired the listening Lola, who skipped down the sidewalk, shouting happily, "I want someone to kill George Bush! I want someone to kill George Bush!" I cringed, fearing some nearby Republican would report my four year-old assassin to the Secret Service.

So, tell me, are there still Republicans near your residence? I would think that they might be quite a rarity in that habitat.

(rumored to have locked himself in the bathroom in protest during the Watergate Hearings because their televised coverage pre-empted afternoon game shows like The Price is Right)
