J. Bunning + P. Henry -> 2 gamma

Now that the Senate has voted 89-10 to renew the USA PATRIOT Act, it's worth studying the Bunning-Henry reaction, which produces two gamma rays from annihilation.

Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! -- I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!
- Patrick Henry, 1775

Civil liberties do not mean much when you are dead
- Jim Bunning, 2006
