And while we're wishing for highly implausible things to happen, why don't we just wish away all the terrorists weapons? The problem ISN'T terrorism. The problem is that the terrorists have guns. I say the terrorists should just get rid of their guns.
If you'd like to go to Iraq and convince them to give up their guns, I'll start stumping for getting the Government out of marriage. If we're both successful, the world will be a happier place!
Or we could just stop wishing for implausible things, and you know... enact some reasonable solutions. Killing terrorists and allowing gay partners to have all the rights of straight partners seem pretty reasonable to me. YMMV.
