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.
There’s a special providence in the fall of a sparrow. If it be now, ’tis not to come. If it be not to come, it will be now. If it be not now, yet it will come—the readiness is all. - Hamlet, Act 5, sc 2
