Questionable hermeneutics, Dan . If some course of action is unavoidable 
it does not mean it is justified. To kill mosquitoes or any other 
harmful animals is not justified, because they have not done any harm

Worse is the baseball cap the DL is wearing, this a straight forward 
crime against good taste and it makes his head look like a Chinese 
1000year egg.
