Kickass the quiet heroes among us
Kickass, the doorstop dog, reports the following at a sports dept. counter: A young man buying fishing licenses for himself and a companion/friend/brother who displayed the obvious indications—erratic vocal and physical actions, of mental impairment.
To witness the patience and thoroughness of the procedure, as other license buyers waited in line, was to see the essence of humanity at its zenith, and was a stark reminder of how those of us who have escaped such human tending burdens cannot possibly know of their dimensions.
The two young men, obviously, are going fishing, and the thought of that is both immensely gratifying, and, when taken in the context of a president who mocks a physically handicapped journalist, profoundly demoralizing.
