Rock Bottom

Auguste and I have a bit of a joke where I IM him every week or so and say "I thought I couldn't be surprised by the awfulness of the lunatic right wing, but this is the worst thing I've ever heard of."

And every time, I really think it's the final time and I can't be surprised again. Yet when this story of the "Carved B" mugging came out, I was really sickened by the cynicism of the left, that so many of us were immediately calling the story a hoax when, to my mind, there was a good chance that some crazy mugger had actually done this.

As usual, I was wrong and the people who thought that there is no depth to which crazy right-wingers will not stoop were right.

This time is really the last time. Never again, Auguste! Never again will I be surprised. Until next week, I guess.

Try working around them for a while. I am surrounded by them. You cannot believe the serious comments that come out of their mouths some times. I gave up long ago try to talk logic or sense with them. And these are people schooled in science. I've come to the conclusion that an old expression is correct. You can't fix stupid, even with education. The sentence usually starts with "I think" or "I believe" which basically means their mind is closed.
