|THINK OF IT AS EVOLUTION IN ACTION|
Tupac Shakur had "THUG LIFE" tattooed across his belly, and carried a gun. When he was shot the first time, losing a testicle, he cried like a baby. Not from the pain, but with a "why me" whine.
Once, driving north on Delsea Drive through Pitman, NJ, a four-lane highway with a fifth lane in the middle for those making left turns, I was nearly struck head on by a a college girl talking on a cell phone. I was in the center lane with my light on for a left. She was on her cell phone, head turned 90º left to her side window, looking off into a distant parking lot, driving full speed straddling a lane that is closed to all thru traffic. I floored it and ran the light to avoid having her hit me, I could not have moved right without getting reared or broadsided. Afterwards, I thought, damn, now why did I save her life for her? I could have just hit her on the driver's side, I had my belt on.
Such people expect to act irresponsibly, and expect that others will protect them from themselves. As for the dumb broad, either she really was willing to give her life for such a cause, in which case she chose her crime and is doing the time. Or, she foolishly got herself into a situation way over her head, so to speak. If her death was intentional, then good for her, and for us. If her death was accidental, then just like Dennis Moore, "Stupid bitch, stupid bitch." I haven't followed the originating link on this page, but I do remember hearing the news when it broke. I remember thinking "Good for her!"
Rachel chose her crime, and she's doing the time, as fertilizer.
