The Electric Commentary

There is a lot to be said for...

alternative forms of punishment if you ask me. A woman caught stealing gas was forced to wear a sandwich-board sign proclaiming that "I was caught stealing gas." Crowds gathered. Parents took the opportunity to teach their kids a lesson. People that drove past the gas station made cat calls. She'll probably never steal gas again. I don't really see the downside to punishments like this but they usually cause a big fuss.

A man named Andrew Black, who stopped by on his lunch break, was critical of the punishment and converted an old beer poster into a sign protesting high gas prices. "What is this, the Middle Ages?" said Black.

Yes Mr. Black, gas prices are high. Just like in the middle ages.
