EDITORIAL SWEET REVENGE.

A new study last week confirmed what we have always sensed: Revenge, sweet revenge, is quite satisfying, despite the possible consequences. The study also found that the seeds of revenge stem from passion and strong feelings, not reason and rationality.

But like many unhealthy things that feel oh-so-good in the moment, revenge is often not good for you, or for anyone, in the long run.

Just consider that the jails are full of people who savored a few minutes of revenge on their enemies. So next time someone's done you wrong, remember the old adage: ``Act in haste, repent in leisure.''
