From a reader:
you may have already heard or thought of this. whenever i hear about hamas vowing revenge for the killing of one of their leaders, and the concerns over more radicals joining the fight, i can’t help but think of an exchange from buffy the vampire slayer.
buffy has just embarrassed a vampire in a fight:
Buffy: Wow, that was really funny-looking! Could you do it again?
Vampire: I’ll kill you for that.
Buffy: For that? What were you trying to kill me for before?
then again, perhaps you haven’t. my thoughts seem to be more simple than most.
