Some of you might recall a few years back when an American was convicted of tagging in a far east country (I think it was Singapore), and was sentenced to a caning.
At the time, like many Americans, I thought that was a bit harsh, and maybe a bit barbaric.
I'm having second thoughts about that. I just got back from one of my favorite swimming holes on Clear Creek, and after the mile hike to get there, what did I find but a pile of beer bottles and caps, and a plastic bag with a partially eaten sandwich. As I looked at the trash, I thought to myself that if we could catch the individuals responsible, perhaps a caning might be appropriate!
Come on people! If you had the strength to carry it there full, you should have the intelligence to carry it out empty!
