Mixup Sunday

Installment #2 of the short story will be put up tonight.  So sorry folks, life keeps getting in the way of my thought processes.

For those of you who have an iPad and are sick and tired of Apple’s vision of how to be total @$$h*le$ with regards to interfacing with the rest of the world, you can try out an online service called OnLive.  I could spend a crapload of time trying to explain it or I could just post a link here.

The news article kind of focused on the wrong thing here.  A man was gored in Madrid.  That’s nice.  He was gored by a bull whose horns were intentionally loaded with wax and set on fire.  I am NOT a PETA freak.  I eat animals every single day and will never stop.  Even though I haven’t been in years I consider myself a hunter.  But focusing on the runner instead of the idiots who purposely gave a poor animal pure terror?  Come on, that’s criminal.

Torres said the bull charged the man, gored him and then stamped on his head, causing him “irreversible injuries.” He said he had offered his condolences to the man’s family, but would not cancel similar events scheduled for early Sunday.

“Although ours is a small town, many people from outside come to visit our feast dedicated to Saint Anton,” Torres said, adding that black bows had been tied to town hall flags as a mark of respect and mourning.

Apparently no understanding is given to a mother who authorized her son to get a tattoo memorializing his dead olver brother.  Arrest and bonding make more sense.

“Unfortunately, the mother has elected not to cooperate with the police any further in this investigation,” Wilkie said. “The tragedy of this is that the child’s tattoos are some sort of memorial to a sibling who was lost in a car accident a few years ago. I understand from the investigators that there are several memorial to the deceased child in the apartment where they live. It may be that professional or religious counseling for their/her grief would be more  helpful than anything.”

Why should the mother co-operate with officials who arrested her for something like this?  I don’t normally feel this way about police but bitez mon crank.  Since when do citizens need their police officers to suggest what we need for our grief process.

When is an owl swooping down to nab a rat-analogue news?  When the rat-analogue is saved by a real dog.
