The surviving Boston Marathon bomber will receive a fair trial, even though the massive amount of evidence makes its result apparent, even before the indictments and the proceedings begin. Whether or not he receives the death penalty, which he deserves, may depend on how valuable he is as a source of information regarding other acts of terrorism. Other questions arising from the bombing include:
Most of the states shown in yellow would be in the Confederacy today. The green states, and probably Washington, would probably be in the Union.
In the North, on the contrary, strict gun control laws would be in effect and a woman’s right to choose an abortion would be guaranteed by a Constitutional Amendment.
Opposition to this, of course, would come from China whose inexpensive labor costs would be undercut by this arrangement and from South Korean laborers who would face unemployment or wage reduction as their jobs flow to North Korea.
