During the past few days, with the UK media totally taken up with the looting and arson that has been going on in our major cities, several theories have been discussed as to how to deal with the %&*^# who have done these crimes.
One member of the public who expressed a view on a forum said that the young people (and it *is* mainly young people) should be locked up, and the boys made to do heavy manual labour, AND THE GIRLS MADE TO DO SEWING!!
Oh dear, sewing has now become a PUNISHMENT? Says it all, really.
Who was it who said that when a society doesn’t respect art, it is doomed?
