John Ketch was the famous hangman, long-dead at the time, but John
Trenchard and Thomas Gordon, the authors of the Cato's Letters published
this call for the punishment of the banksters who perpetrated the
disastrous South Sea Bubble. Sadly, the bankers went unpunished,
beginning a long tradition.

Justice is not dead in the United States. Barry Bonds is convicted of
his high crime. Our country is protected from Bradley Manning. And
besides, Martha Stewart served time. The real culprits go free.
Instead, the people will pay the price, while financial profits soar.
