I see you finally got your goat to suckle you again, for that shot 'o courage.-With my fondest congratulations, I salute you for following the trail of thin mints, moon-pies, and the scent of flayed leather, to the light at the end of the tunnel.

However, due to budget cuts, the light at the end of the tunnel has been shut off.

Sux to be you, nerd.

No. Laws can deter crime, if the law-abiding potential criminals give a shit about the law. The law prevents nothing. It defines, and sets punishment, for 'crime'.

I hope you find piece someday. In fact, I hope you find all of your missing pieces.

But, above all, I hope you can find your missing nacelles so you can climb into your little cowgirl spaceship and leave the f*kin' galaxy.

Thanks for the 'heads-up', so to speak, but the warning was completely irrelevant to my circumstances.
