Is it Maury or the Dog that has that obvious load of common sense?  (Or for that matter, is it Maury or the Dog that has the sense of humor?)

I may be seriously misguided, but it seems amusing (although 
unfortunately involving serious beliefs) that discussion of terrorist 
methods  should be restricted for fear we would give them new ideas. How 
condescending can one become? I'm very 'mischief oriented' and think 
hard about ways to twist the tails of authority figures, (you know, pot 
seeds in city hall flower beds or how to defeat city street cameras, 
etc.) but dream up something 'truly original' from which 'they' might 
benefit? Yes, all things are possible, but there are Seven Billion human 
brains running around loose out there (e.g., crop circles and UFOs in 
the night sky) -- that is an awesome number of fun and ideas.
