Re: “Making Amends on the Plaza

How far back does guilt go? I learned that my genetics contain some neanderthal blood, a species driven to extinction over 20,000 years ago. Some of my ancestors were very likely abused by the Romans.

Re: “Enabling or a Lifeline?

In my opinion it is not a bad idea. No, it won't cure anybody, but it will in effect warehouse them and keep their bad habits off the street at least for a percentage of the day. By their choices they have taken themselves out of our productive society, so the next best thing is to put them somewhere where they can't hurt themselves or others. I know that sounds heartless, and I do have sympathy for folks addicted to drugs, and I wish them well. Keeping them safe and away from vulnerable members of our society is a bad solution to a worse problem. At least with clean needles and surroundings they will be less likely to act as a reservoir for diseases.

Re: “RSVP: I Will Not Attend Your Weed Wedding

Linda, I agree. Worst thing about marajuana (Well, I have a list) is getting behind someone at the super market that stinks like month old dirty bong water. I cannot imagine that at a wedding.

Re: “Chief Mills Proposes Gun Control Law

If your front door or your car is locked isn't that "Under Lock and Key?" The location of the lock is what is in question.

Re: “How to Dine Alone

I have come to the conclusion that I rented the damned table and for the space of time that I reside there I get to do whatever I want, taking into account local laws and mores. Mainly I hope to savor something yummy, chat lightly with the wait staff, and relax a bit.

Re: “EPD Chief: Officers Fired More Than 40 Shots in Tuesday's Pursuit

There is more than one reason to shoot at an armed assailant; One is to disable the opponent, another is to suppress their firing; making them keep their head down and not be able to aim carefully to get in a good shot. Keep the other guy on the defensive. I don't think anyone goes to work thinking that today they're going to be shot at or have to shoot, so there is an adrenaline factor, and there is no plan in such an impromptu situation. At that point, all you can do is your best
