"That is fantastic work. All done in the hand? I have to use a Sollberger jig to get a longitudinal flake. Paleo man must have had 2 or 3 times modern mans strength and all his dexterity. Those GEICO advertising folks never knapped when they came up…"

"The problem with your question is that (in this case) you're asking a police officer to judge the intent of someone who had already committed a felony to determine the severity of the threat. Brown had ample opportunity to not die. He chose to…"

"JB, I can appreciate all of that, but surely a line must be drawn somewhere...or is any level of threat or assault punishable in the same way?  The threat of a black eye or fisticuffs is not a good enough reason to legitimize the…"
