The clearest description I have managed so far about my blog is that it is not about cats. In general, I find predators pretty predictable while prey on the other-hand, because they live in universes of anxiety, develop more textured personalities. I also have as a writer a deft hand when it comes to making matters worse, so of course , the already panicky are ready made for me. I will try to grow this blog into an assortment of laughs, because that is what my life has mostly taught me to do. I will use the famous people I have known to get your attention and then tell you small but many times wonderful things about them. I will never name the ones I say ugly things about but I hope you will guess who they are.
Kindness and Social Scorn
by Regis Boff
There is something new and noticeably compelling about this “pour a bucket of cold water over your head to help a worthy charity” incident. I grew up believing that charity should be an understated pursuit at worst and at best nearly a concealed one.
The “shotgun marriage” of kindness and social scorn is not new, anyone who has ever passed an offering plate at church knows that, but what would happen if some tightly wound church matron sitting behind you in the pew, dumped ice water on your head if you did not “cough up” to her satisfaction?
