One of my favorite readers forwarded me this NPR quiz and I can't figure it out:

Name a type of lawbreaker that starts with the letter S, and which, upon removing the S as well as one other letter, becomes another type of lawbreaker.

I am sorry to hear you guys are so sad. Cheer up -- CHANGE IS COMING!

Markus.

Don't be bringing any knifes into my courthouse or the Marshalls will be having a chat with you.

Wouldn't it be more like trying to castrate the Constitution by removing the Bill of Rights - God forbid they touch the 2nd amendment though. Maybe it is just a vasectomy.
