After finishing an article in today's New York Times regarding the caning
case I logged onto the list and saw Steve Mizrach's interesting
observations. I thought I might add something I read yesterday-a quote
from former president George Bush. He thought that Singapore should
reconsider doing this (to an American only?), but he sure admires
Singapore for their successful fight against crime. He also asserts, as
do the "Poll Cats" in Steve's message, that Americans are sick and tired
of crime here in the good old USA and think Singapore has the right idea,
at least in general. Make of that what you will.
