Letter: Persuasive effects of a good whacking

Sir: If Michael Fay's plea for clemency is successful, he will no doubt soon be amusing himself spray- painting cars in Ohio. If the due process of law in Singapore is observed, and he is caned, I suspect he might not be so keen to repeat the offence.

Yours faithfully,
