Perhaps the shortest editorial rant in history

Speaking of thoughts that horrify me and I wish I had never had: A mosquito landed on me.

I swatted it.

But it has a right to live, too, no? I have lots of blood to spare.

So I apologized and said, "I'm sorry, but I'm afraid you will infect me with something".

Then I wished the city had done a better job of spraying and killing them all, so I didn't have to feel guilty.

Then I really, really thought about it, and wondered how I get to claim to be different from the political right wing.

OH, WAIT, YEAH, I was talking about mosquitoes, not human beings.
