I'm Better. The Outside World, Not So Much

     Tempted to spend today hiding under the bed.  Hey, Americans, here's a thought, let's not kill anyone today unless they are running at you ready to do harm, hunh?

     Just one damn day of saying "please" and "thank you" no matter who you are; just one damn day of not being crazy-mad, stupid or scared or clumsy, just one day of being fully aware how terribly, terribly fragile you and all the other walking bags of water around truly are, please?  Just the one day?

     The hotheads and halfwits of all stripes would love to push the rest of us right over the edge of civilization.  Don't let them.  Nobody wins when that happens.

Civil wars and revolutions are a bit like stirring up a septic tank- the really nasty pieces are allowed to float to the top.

Yes, that would be the whole point of civil wars and revolutions. They don't create the nasty stuff, they just expose what was always there and not being dealt with. What can't go on forever, won't.

How about let's not have any. Geez. Stop lickin' yer damn chops.

Being a resident of DFW Metro, it is very hard to control my visceral reaction to the doings of a local racist half-wit. It is easy to cluck over these events until they affect your own henhouse.

Today we are doing an outing for my wife and instead of my normal pocket piece I'll have something a good bit bigger. Lightning can strike twice in the same place you know, and insurance is always a wise move. We can beat our breasts forever, but it won't make any difference until what is in our breasts can change.

My heart goes out to all the victims of this massacre, of all colors and professions.

I carry a badge and a gun every day. I truly hope we as a nation can take a step back and be nice. That said, I'm afraid every cop in America's internal threat meter just went up a notch.

Mike, it's really hard to blame them, if so.

Drat. I was born a spaz. Never fully grew out of it.


(Glad to hear you're on the mend...)

Roberta, if you don't mind, I'd love to use this as a quote on the BookFace. With attribution, of course.

The fellow in MN was local, and beloved by a few of my neighbors. A whole lot of other neighbors of mine are having a really hard time staying calm. This might help a bit.

Fell free to do so, Lex, if I'm not too late responding.
