the people of that time were a slight bit more savage than todays man. At that time Lewis might have shot the visitor for talking that way about the President of the United States.


Nah. I'm today's man and I don't think that's too savage. Wouldn't do it, but wouldn't mind if someone did. Our feelings remain the same but the climate has changed considerably.


Heh. If being rude about the president were a shooting offense, or even a duelling offense, Congress would never have been able to muster a quorum after Adams replaced Washington, much less after Jefferson replaced Adams.

I think shooting's a bit much. It's more of a Hamilton-Burr solution than a Jeffersonian one anyway.
