Make what you will of the following words:

    "If there is a sin superior to every other, it is that of willful and offensive war. Most other sins circumscribed within narrow limits, that is, the power of one man cannot give them a very general extension, and many kind of sins have only a mental existence from which no infection arises; but he who is the author of a war, lets loose the whole contagion of Hell, and opens a vein that bleeds a nation to death."    -- Thomas Paine

I think it is a rare bird known as Typo Americanus Accidentalus; it has a peculiar mating call made up of four-letter words...

My Bad. That was, indeed, a typo. The word should have been "contagion". Sorry.

Thank you Sir. It went into my scrapbook, right next to deQuincy's Murder.


For,

if once a man indulges himself in
murder, very soon he comes to think little of robbing, and from robbing
he comes next to drinking and Sabath-breaking, and from that to
incivility and procrastination. Once begun upon this downward path, you never know where you are to stop.
Many a man dated his ruin from some murder or other that perhaps he thought little of at the time.

          On Murder Considered As One of the Fine Arts

          Second paper, 1839
          by Thomas De Q

I believe Bush and Ashcroft are past the sabbath- breaking stage.

I somehow don't think they're headed in the direction Quincey warns about.
