The New York Times notes that the price of an Iraqi life, taken by a private, drunken security guard in a high-profile murder, is $15,000 (note that the typical Iraqi life appears to be worth $3000). It is interesting to note that a higher price was considered but dismissed because Iraqis might be prepared to get themselves killed for money. I kid you not).
In other news, a sexual harassment case has netted $11.6 million. It is interesting to note that no suggestion has been made that women will have themselves harassed for money.
Keep your priorities straight.
And for your lifeblood I will require a reckoning: from every beast I will require it and from man. From his fellow man I will require a reckoning for the life of man. (Gen 9:5)
