RE: OPEN LETTER TO THE DRUNK

|

A too-kind FBvian responds:

Sorry, but the old cop reporter in me (who has seen more than his fair share of dead bodies in his time) is kicking in here. That was a very noble thing you tried to do, but that wouldn’t make your wife and kids feel any better when the cops call to tell them you’d dead in the street because some irate drunk has shot you or run you down with his car because you had the nerve to try and help him.

Next time, just call the cops. They can give chase and, if necessary, shoot back.

This, I think, marks the first occasion on which someone has described my actions as “noble.” I’m sure my week will go downhill from here.
