Does Tookie Williams Write Unmaintainable Code?
I had written a grand analysis of “Tookie” Williams, the death penalty, and what it means to earn clemency. I had driven deep down into my anti-death penalty soul to come to the conclusion that while I, private citizen, would happily argue against the death penalty, I, pretend governator, would not rise to commute the sentence.
If I were Lord Ruler of Californialand, Tookie would die, and I would feel extra guilty for a bit.
Of course, it took thousands of words to get to that point. When I’d arrived, I looked around at that pile of political thought, and said, “Screw it.”
Even I wasn’t interested in my views on capital punishment and Tookie Williams today.
So, instead, for all my geek friends, I offer a link to a rather lengthy essay:How to Write Unmaintainable Code.
Notably, I’m pretty sure that most programmers would support the death penalty for anyone who actually follows the guidelines suggested in the essay. And they would be fully justified.
