I don't often find memorable writing in the newspapers, but there are exceptions. An article on "neurolaw" by Raymond Tallis in "The Times" three days ago, contained the following delight.

"The brain is, of course, the final common pathway of all actions. You can’t do much without a brain. Decapitation is, in most instances, associated with a decline in IQ."
