Newsflash - President Bush vows that Saudi bombing suspects will receive due process in a court of law and are innocent until proven guilty by a jury of their peers. At least I assume that's what he means by "American justice."

[E: I think he meant Texas Justice. They'll be imprisoned and forced to watch bad daytime TV.]

[RM: I was thinking more along the lines of Alabama justice, but the Texas justice quip is much funnier and equally gruesome.]

[E: It was probably more like this quote: "No, we've got one in Texas, and guess what: the three men who murdered James Byrd -- guess what's going to happen to them? {pause for smirk} They're going to be put to death."](Good pull. - RM)

[E: Now THIS is Texas Justice: "The New York Times reported that the new U.S. administration for Iraq will now let U.S. forces shoot looters on sight to discourage the rampant lawlessness that has persisted for weeks. "]

[RM: "They are going to start shooting a few looters so that the word gets around." Apparently Paul Bremer didn't play enough "telephone" in elementary school. "Psst, Americans are shooting Iraqi looters, pass it on." "Psst, Americans are shooting Iraqis, pass it on." "Psst, Americans are executing Iraqis, pass it on." Then the inevitable, "Yo man, I paid for this TV, what you shooting at me for?" Not to say that the threat of summary execution isn't a powerful deterrent. I'd be one law-abiding mo fo if the police walked around with a license to kill on sight. I'd be like, "Hey, can you pin that reciept to my shirt where everyone can see it?"]
