Quote of the Week

My first ever "Quote of the Week" comes from Thomas Sowell at In an article about sexual preditors Mr. Sowell had this to say:

Their thinking -- if it can be called that -- is that sexual predators who have been released from prison have "paid their debt to society" and so the slate should be wiped clean and these sadists allowed to hide their past.

It is amazing how many innocent young lives have been sacrificed for a half-baked phrase.

Going to jail doesn't repay anything. People are put behind bars as punishment and to keep them out of circulation. Child victims of rape and murder cannot be made whole. The debt can never be repaid.

Very well said. I highly recommend that you read the entire article.

I believe I'll make this "Quote of the Week" a 1492 regular addition.
