Each morning I wake up and try to convince myself that there is good in the world and my fellow humans and I are part of a vast interconnectedness of love. Each evening I go to sleep knowing that people are idiots and the human race deserves everything it’s getting.
Last night I made the mistake of watching the NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams. A news show so depressing that they had to add a segment called “Making A Difference” to highlight one happy thing at the end of each broadcast so people don’t kill themselves with grief and despair. On last night’s show they highlighted the new Georgia gun law that lets registered gun owners carry their gun…well…anywhere. Sure if you want a gun, fine. But what’s going to stop someone from yanking it from that sexy new leather hip holster and blowing your head off? Nothing…
That kind of thinking puzzles me, and so does this next story:
Cops find loaded gun in Tennessee woman’s vagina
Police said the $250 gun originally belonged to John Souther, a retired car salesman from Kingsport.
Souther said it was stolen from his 1994 Mustang last year while the car was parked in front of his home.
“Oh gosh,” Souther, 70, told The Smoking Gun after learning where his gun was found.
The “little fellow,” he said, would need a “bath in bleach.”
Archer was charged with gun possession and introducing contraband into a jail and released after posting $6,000 bond.
Of course you want to know what kind of an idiot we’re dealing with here. So here’s a mugshot:
Thanks Dallas Archer, for reminding me that the human race is doomed.
