Sounds like another shining example of the benefit of free and unregulated capitalism. It certainly demonstrates the "self regulating" nature of that philosophy - too bad people had to die for such Friedmanesque purity.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
