Is It Really Necessary to Say 'Don't Duct Tape Dad!'

In order of life there is Rule No. 1 (No matter the temptation or desperation, treat your father like you will want to be treated) and Rule No. 2 (Duct tape solves almost — almost, ALMOST — any problem).

So, Mr. John T. Hallinan, 68, of Hanover, Mass., there was/is/will be no excuse to ignore Rule No. 1, just because it seems even momentarily convenient to duct tape your 93-year-old diapered dad while you went to work. Should we wish "the chair" upon him or just to have his own children carry out a similar sentence on him?
