Why? Because it's necessary. Surely you've noticed how irate people
become when they discover that some worthless minority is getting an
undeserved break. When I see this happening, I'm driven to try to be
the first to respond.

Unfortunately, I was taking a dump when the telecast of the football
game was interrupted. I was way behind the curve on that one.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint
to come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
