    Thailand has it right. Public canings for vandalism. If we started actually having consequences for actions, *maybe* we could put an end to this kind of garbage.

    I second this one. Read it in 5th or 6th grade and it's not TOO heavy for yougnins. Fantastic read. It definitely is fiction, but from what I remember of it it all seemed pretty plausible.
