  8. Indiana State Penitentiary

    I have just finished watching a TV documentary about Indiana State Penitentiary. This is not a thread about the death penalty as such, although it does touch on it. My query about the American system is why after convicting and sentencing a guilty person to suffer the ultimate sanction, the...

  18. Liberty of the Mentally Disturbed

    In light of the recent shootings, I've heard some people lament that we don't provide enough help for our mentally disturbed. How much focus should we put on this issue? Would it be too much to institutionalize them until experts can reasonably ensure they are not dangers to society?

  20. Stand And Be Counted

    There are a couple of questions asked, nothing major, and an email confirmation link, but I think it's worth letting the world know that the number of non-believers is growing. For Americans this might help hasten non-believers gaining more representation in congress, and who knows, perhaps even a...
