For the Protesters
More black people are killed by other black people by far, than are killed by white police officers. Now checkout this link.
The Seventh Fairy
Alex accidentally shot a fairy. He blasted it with a 12-gauge shotgun. It was an honest mistake; the fairy was hanging out in a corn field and flew up when the labrador flushed it out. Damn! It was the seventh fairy he'd accidentally shot this week! He was hoping to get a pheasant. Fairies didn't even taste good—and the last thing he needed was another taxidermied fairy! He reached down and picked up the fairy. Stupid thing... he didn't really want anyone to find out that he had shot another fairy out of season. Finally, he shoved it down a badger hole and kicked dirt over it. Then he walked quickly away.

Dear Lord, please protect us from our families this holiday season. As we find ourselves thrust into the company of extended relations, with people who we are related to by marriage—and sometimes less than that, we ask your guidance as the Lucy Van Pelt's of the family start slinging their tidings of nastiness to and fro. And lead us not into confrontation, but deliver us from the people who need favors continuously because others have always taken care of their stuff for them. For families are complicated, and some people don't really want to see us. For that is their nature. Please also protect us from the commercialism and materialism that has all but destroyed a meaningful time. Help us to endure the mess and the stress and the scheduling and rescheduling of gatherings. Help us to smile at things that are dumb and traditions that are overlooked as well as those traditions that are still practiced even though they should forever be buried beneath a thousand million tons of rock. For these are the holidays; the joys and the sorrows, forever and ever; amen.
All Eyes on Ferguson
All eyes are on Ferguson now as it literally smokes this morning after burning all night. Is it a racist place? Maybe it is. But in the midst of the looting, shooting and destruction, could it be that some of the views might be justified? Who is doing the looting, shooting and burning? Are these the same people who are "crying foul?" Are the people committing the violence and crimes the same people who are seeking "justice?" Does anyone remember the teachings of Martin Luther King, Jr.? This stuff is all connected and all related people. If you want to live in a cesspool, then you are doing the right thing. If you want justice, then you are doing exactly the wrong thing in order to get it. If you are self-serving, and using this tragedy as a "justification" for your own criminal tendencies, then you are truly the source of the problem.

Thanks For Setting Me Straight
I hadn’t realized before you set me straight, that it was my responsibility to take care of your kids for you while you went out to do fun things. I thought such things were voluntary. I didn’t realize that it was a mandatory obligation on my part. Knowing that now, I can see why you were so persistent to make me give up my weekends, to watch your children. I understand now why you think I am negative. I’m deeply sorry that you feel this way. I can see now that you feel entitled to babysitting services and so much more. It was wrong of me to want to have my weekends for my family and our stuff—when I could have been taking care of your stuff instead.
I also want to thank you for the comments about how I should follow your culture. I understand why you don’t follow your culture yourself; because the rules aren’t for you; they are for me—even though I am from a different culture. Maybe if you decide to follow the rules yourself and take care of your own kids and your own stuff, you will be kind enough to give me some more good advice in the future. I sure do look forward to that.

The Office Space...
His office was located in a building that was decorated in 20th Century Cheap. At one point he had a mouse go into his desk and chew into a bag with three candy bars and eat (only) the TWIX®. He set a mouse trap the next day. Unfortunately the ants showed up to eat all the bait before the mouse could get it. Apparently he wouldn't be able to kill the mouse without killing the ants first...
