12. Reminds me of my co-worker who knew the answer to our difficulties in Iraq.
Five years ago, when the Iraq quagmire was at its worst, I had a co-worker who sincerely believed that the solution was to simply kill all the Iraqis.

"What?", we asked incredulously, "All forty million of them? Every single one? Men, women, and children?"

"Well, yeah", he said earnestly. "You have to be sure and kill all of them. Then, problem solved."

So was this guy otherwise stupid, vicious, or crazy? Nope, none of those things. He was a gentle, affable IT professional. His appearance and demeanor reminded me of John Goodman.

Guess what his favorite news channel and radio talk-shows were, though.

It's that bad out there. That's what we're up against.
