    I kinda sorta had a similar idea a couple years ago in the run-up to the Iraq war:

    Change the laws so that the president can declare war ONLY on the condition that his oldest child will be sacrificed. Doesn't have to be violent -- they can have the nice, gentle lethal injection. No kids? Then spouse, parent, grandparent, whatever near kin he's got.

    And any member of congress who votes in favor of said war must do the same.

    Betcha that would get rid of this goddamned eagerness to go to war.

    Yeah, I know it'll never happen. I'm not sure I'd even really want it to. But it's a great thought experiment.

      Unspeakable One, we all know there's a good chance some of those chickenhawk children would be sacrificed to YOU in your role as one of the Elder Gods. I know you can hardly wait to get your hooks into one of those Bush girls, but don't think we aren't on to you.

        Don't worry about that gibbous flapping thing at your window tonight. . .
