BRAINSTORMS AND COURTS.
While a "brainstorm" may be suf
ficient to exempt a slayer from punish
ment in Washington, the state still re
tains the right to protect society from
the possibility of some future recur
ran, c of "brainstorms."
This right or duty would seem to be
one of plain common sense, and might
well be made a rule of law in other
states and commonwealths. A temper
ament subject to brainstorms of such
violence as to compel the commission
of crime might commonly be judged
a dangerous temperament, and, even if
a jury acquits the doer of the violence
on the ground of insanity or of "the
bipher law." says the Chicago Inter
Ocean, nevertheless a judge who has
