Subject opinion to coercion: whom will you make your inquisitors? Fallible men, governed by bad passions, by private as well as public reasons. And why subject it to coercion? To produce uniformity? But is uniformity of opinion desirable? No more than of face and stature.

- Thomas Jefferson

Yes, after a two-year effort, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed a bill barring necrophilia.

Sure, there was the anti-necrophilia group, but is there a pro-necrophilia group?

Our government, working for us. As the pro-necrophilia groups are probably pretty quiet, you would wonder why this was a two year process. Because there was no one to play politics with on the issue, so the politicians really are not too interested. The game is the game.
