Whether or not, much has happened since then to impact upon my thoughts on the entire issue of right to life, be it the life of an ant, a rat, an elephant . . . or a human-being.
As usual, I’ve spent a good amount of time thinking – thinking all sorts of things, just like everyone else – but last week’s ant slaughter incident has made me take a more down-to-earth look at a person's or any creature’s right to life.
Far be it from me to bore you with my thoughts on the issue of taking or preserving the life of another ‘thing’, I’d be happy as Larry if a member or two gave me their views as to whether it’s right to blat an ant or to swat a fly or to shoot an elephant or, on the darker side, to torture a man or woman to death.
