I'd like to call your attention to The Thirteen Scariest People in America (Old Trout Magazine). The humor (and scariness) is just what we all need before Halloween.

The list includes:

* Scariest Presidential Candidate: Sam Brownback / Senator (R-Kansas)

* Scariest Judge: Edith Hollan Jones / Chief Justice of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit

* Scariest Proselytizer: Rev. Rick Warren / Author of The Purpose Driven Life
(Tied with Brownback on my list, let me tell you -- this man penetrates even into prisons, and reading his book with my inmate tutee made my eyes pop out a number of times. Of course, I couldn't say anything apart from trying to convince him that Narcotics Anonymous really was a much better text on which to formulate a new worldview -- you know, "I am an addict and I'm responsible", as oppposed to "God made me just the way I am, and my harmful inclinations were part of His Plan.")

* Scariest Cop: Joe Arpaio / Sheriff, Maricopa County, AZ

* Scariest Drug Dealer: Billy Tauzin / CEO, Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America

* Scariest Academic: Kevin MacDonald / Professor of Psychology, California State University at Long Beach

* Scariest Insurer: Edward M. Liddy / CEO, Allstate

Yes! Joe Arpaio! That's some Arizona pride right there. He was rumored to be running for governor for awhile... that would have been fun.
