if you refind the site with this explanation for 'capital' I'd be interested to see it.

I have learned it differently (which doesn't mean it's right): 'Kaput' was 'main' and only one later meaning was head.

That makes more sense to me in the context of the several other meanings of the word capital.

BTW, I live in a town in which three murders per year are considered unacceptably high.
