    "That really made me angry" is much better than "I wanted to punch that person".

    This is the kind of thing we learn in kindergarten, but this legislator and elementary school teacher apparently did not. It took until he had to stand on the floor of his legislative house and humble himself that he did. Let's hope it is a lesson learned, and helps others to grow up some, too.
    There are only two possibilities; one is that we are alone in the universe, the other is that we are not.
    Both are terrifying.

    I agree it isn't good , but show me a person who has never said, Go #### yourself, or Drop dead, or I'd like to kick his azz.
    It happens.

    I wonder how you all would like to compare and contrast this story with the kerfuffle over punching Moldylocks.
