What Can be Done About the Knife Culture?

A phenomenon first reported in the British Isles is now gaining in strength in Japan. What can the government do? The Brits have launched a massive education program and started sentencing people caught carrying knives over 3 in. in length to up to four years in prison after having 16 knife deaths.

In Japan a 25 year old anime watching, Internet using mad man killed seven with a large sports knife. One legislator called for banning sports knives with long blades. These weapons which might be labeled assault knives include knives with blades over five inches in length.

A quick check of the kitchen shows ten knives that would be affected by the ban, some with blades up to 10 inches in length. Some of them were owned by my dear mother. Oh well ,I guess we are already all felons anyway.

Again. I was locked out of the comment section for hours. It finally came back at 2;30 pm. The same thing happened last week when I commented. The thing was big and red and repeated the same gibberish over and over.Has anyone else had this. It was also at my computers at work so it's not just my computer or URL.

Dave you lazy pornographic bum

What kind of lame excuse is that? I don't want to see any more incomprehensible and obscene jibber jabber from you. If you're locked out call the superintendent. And please, I don't want to hear any more about your big red thing. For Christ's sake.


I have a camera. Can you post pictures too? It would be cool if we could do that.
