Not long ago, there was a post asking if people with very different perspectives can still be friends. I was one of those who thought “yes,” based in part on a very long (40+ year) friendship I had with a gun-toting Lutheran minister.

Today, said friend posted a photo of the truck from the Nice attack with the following text:

“Registration hasn’t worked. It’s time to ban trucks. Those people in France would still be alive if it wasn’t for that doggone AAA. There are over SIX million of these dangerous trucks in France. .000017% have been used in these terrible attacks. It’s time to ban these evil objects! Trucks like this have no sporting purpose, and should be outlawed.”

The insane, fucking, stupid, bloody-handed crazies are now in a feedback loop.

I hereby amend my earlier response to “sometimes.” Not this time.
