Get the bad guy

I'm feeling politically incorrect. I'm feeling I want to, point blank, say anyone intentionally harming a young person should be done away with. Before you get mad at me for wanting to kill the killers, I want to say I took an unofficial survey of my own last week-100 percent of you responded that you'd kill killers, too.

Sorry killers, and no offense, because I certainly have compassion for all humans; I know you have many good qualities, but if one of your bad qualities is killing you gotta go; and not because you're so much more a bad person than I am-but more because you're a cog in the cycle of a long line of abusers. I believe the way to dead reckon an end to a cycle is to bury it. So you see, it's not so much about killing you as it is about the potential to save so many lives in the future. I hope that makes sense to you, and I'm sure it does cause you are actually sharp and not so much insane as your defense team would like us to believe.

Last night's sunset was profoundly beautiful. As I drove across the valley to visit a landscape painter friend of mine, I watched the sunset progress; I thought how odd it is that one man could see such a beautiful thing and be moved to paint it, while another man-his neighbor-will see the same sunset and be filled with hate.
