And everyone is told to wear diapers. Some parole officials in CT did a poor job with documentation on two parolees who went on to kill three people after release. On Planet Reality the response would be to improve the process that allowed this to happen. In CT the response may be an opening bid of $500 m. for new prisons (which will continue to cost later) to house EVERYBODY now forbidden from release as a result of bureaucratic error. Next thing you know, you’ll be telling me the FBI and CIA failed to share info on possible terrorists and failed to stop a set of horrible events so we’ll create a whole new federal department and a bunch of restrictive, intrusive laws and never do a meaningful thing to improve cooperation and info-sharing between the FBI and CIA so it won’t happen again.
I hope I get a chance to live on Planet Reality for just a day or two before I die.
