I agree to some extent Keith, but unlike you my beliefs are at leat
loosely based in the real world. While it is easy to wish that all
cats were just dead, I propose that harm minimisation of the actuality

that the whole thing will just go away. I've ot a pretty good idea of
which method will produce the most positive results.
