    I can see the 1/100 thing as a legitimate possibility. Now, the 100 others who weren't so bold as to express similar views in public see it in the paper, and they feel a measure of validation. Maybe, just maybe, it's enough to have them thinking, "you know, I might just be able to make this beheading thing work." And someone on that editorial board surely mentioned that very scenario in the discussions over this letter, the publication of which is, in my view, grossly irresponsible. This is getting pretty close to one of the types of speech not covered by the First Amendment.

    I wonder what the parents of Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold think of this letter. Wonder if they think public advocation of violence is a good way to go.
