On Garrison Keillor's Writers Almanac show this morning on WXXI-FM, he read a brief piece by writer Molly Ivins that reminded me of your column this week: "I am not anti-gun. I'm pro-knife. Consider the merits of the knife. In the first place, you have to catch up with someone in order to stab him. A general substitution of knives for guns would promote physical fitness. We'd turn into a whole nation of great runners. Plus, knives don't ricochet. And people are seldom killed while cleaning their knives."
