Loyalty

I was once told, "If you want loyalty, get a dog" I have a dog, and there are but a few who measure up, and that is the shame of it all. As a species we don't measure by even a dogs standards, it seems we have become so self absorbed and self promotionally greedy that it matter not who, or what we trample to get our own way or get slightly ahead of the next. It's no wonder we find ourselves in perpetual conflict, as people, races, religions and regions. I watch my tv and I see ads where children tell adults to stop worrying about them and worry more about their children having a future, and it's obscene on so many levels I feel my head exploding, and if I need to explain why that's obscene on so many levels then we are truly lost. I guess I'm melancholy because of yesterdays news that Robin Williams took his own life. I suffer depression as do many people, and if a man like Robin Williams, with all the wealth at his disposal can't get help, then what hope is there for the rest of us. I don't know his circumstances and I don't pretend to know or understand his demons, but the tragedy of his passing speaks to us more about us than him. I am just left wondering where were the people around him? the people surrounding him? Maybe all the fame and wealth left him isolated, and alone? Perhaps he should have gotten a house full of dogs.

THIS TOWN

This country... It pulls the bones from your back leaving you a wobbly mess, never having any purchase, it's  irreverent abuse of everyt...
