Why I Dare Not Go

Saw a RT by someone calling people who aren’t taking part “keyboard cowboys.”

Um, no.

Timing is everything. And this is not the time.

With me quoting this — and not for effect — what do you think today would be like had I been sprayed yesterday?

Let me quote a line from an old movie all of you can go ponder: “Production for use.”

Meanwhile, only NYPD officers wear white shirts. That guy is senior enough to know the rules. He should be summarily fired as well as brought up on criminal charges of police brutality. None of which will ever happen.

Thus: “Production for use.”
