Personally I think that Cellphone Users should need special insurance
before they're allowed to have a cellphone. That way, if they walk into
traffic, drive like idiots, or connive to slander with the local
gossips, they'll have enough money to be worth suing.

The incapacity of a weak and distracted government may
often assume the appearance, and produce the effects,
of a treasonable correspondence with the public enemy.
