Hands off

On the walk to the station this evening I saw a bumper sticker on a Cal Trans vehicle that read "There's no excuse for domestic violence."

While I don't disagree with the premise, I have to question the efficacy of such methods of persuasion; it's not like stickers promoting beating the wife are that prevalent (although that message may be implicit in a lot of the decorations on pickup trucks).

I have to conclude that anyone who refrains from smacking the kids from merely seeing a pithy message of disapproval was not really committed to the act in the first place.

That, or the little brats finally got the hint and stopped mouthing off, so it no longer proved necessary.
