I think I found a work around for avoiding an amends (joke)
As I gather my fourth and fifths together, amends have been on my mind lately.
Today, when I found out that Dick Cheney got a new heart (virgin sacrifice?) I found myself thinking, "Too bad, I wanted him to die the long, protracted, painful death of congestive heart failure". Of course, then I though, "Crap, do I have to do an amends to that rat bastard?"
