It occurs to me that all of this could have been avoided if the
father of the deceased soldier, in a fit of grief-driven rage, had
taken Mr. Phelp's (or possibly Mr. Phelp's daughter's) life and then
claimed temporary insanity.
But then I might have been tempted to show up at the funeral with a
sign that says "God hates homobigots". Would the Westboro Baptist
Church have the right to sue me for damages? Frankly, I suspect that
this decision is going to be overturned, or at the very least, the
amount will be lowered dramatically. All I can say it's a damn shame
there's no law against malicious bad manners in this country.
"You can't get blood from a turnip."
P. S. Would someone kindly clue me in on what IIED stands for, please?
