An attractive female friend of mine tells a very humorous anecdote of an impromptu encounter she had with a pro football quarterback while vacationing in the West Indies at a fashionable resort. For her part she was innocently urinating in the ladies room located near the pool bar when Mr. QB walked into her stall, dropped his drawers and suggested she perform falashio on his meat flute. "I'm not giving you a blow job! Who do you think you are? Get out of here right now and leave me alone." The player protested but eventually pulled up his pants and sheepishly walked out into the bright Caribbean sun singing "do I really look like this?" There is a downside of the Direct Approach practiced by athletes and thespians (primarily) and it requires persistence to achieve success because for every 9 women like my friend there is a tenth that says, "sure, why not." The repeated rejection does take it's toll on the human psyche however and produces strange or even insane behavior over time. Someone's going to get blown and this time it's America's X-mas.
I came into this wicked world in the early 1960's and as a result I have born witness to America's 50 Years of Failure which includes the modern age of mass shootings by psychotic men who "go off" on a given day, for no reason at all (except "guns"), and kill scads of innocent bystanders. Back in August of 2019 a KOTCB blog post titled " Reciprocity City " explored a young gunman named Patrick Crusius who drove 9 hours through the west Texas flatlands to shoot up El Paso, TX The KOTCB has commented on many of these shootings, bombings and knifings over the years - The roots of the Boston Marathon Bombing , the Emanuel AME Church shooting , Syed Rizvan Farook and his bride Tashfeen Malik , Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooting , Nick Cruz lovesick Parkland shooting , the Iranian, PETA activist, Vegan Bodybuilder, YouTuber's attack on Google and now this very oddly timed and placed "lone wolf" attack on Walmart shoppers.
