I agree with Todd Pettigrew that the connection between the hanged wolf
and Lopez is tenuous, and I did not intend to suggest otherwise.  My
only point was that this line is the closest one can come to finding
that Lopez "inspired" M/V, and it is, I agree, problematical.

By the way, it is also questionable that Lopez can be said to have been
"hanged"; he was disemboweled, beheaded and quartered.  He may have
first been hanged and then cut down alive, since that was part of the
ceremony, but he didn't die from it.

Mr. Pettigrew, what other wolves were hanged? Is that a traditional
method for dealing with wolves? Saying "wolf" and "hanged" in the same
sentence was a complete reference to the Lopez affair for anyone in
England. The connection is sealed when we understand that the English
knew that Lopez did it not for faith or patriotic zeal, but MONEY.

Beware of membership in the Condi Rice school of interpretation. It IS
possible to understand that terrorists are plotting to hijack planes and
fly them into buildings without a signed invitation to the event.
