Why is it that as soon as my son heads off overseas, the world goes insane.
Just before he left there was the australian guy bashed and thrown into a fire pitt in California by the homeless men. Now we have that terrible incident where the young australian guy was bashed to death by the bouncers in Greece. Seeing his father on TV last night was very sad. Mistaken identity. Which is such a load of crap. Even if they did think he stole a bag – which he didn't – its not really an excuse to kill him is it.
And I think Lloyd is only making 2 greyhound bus trips. But still. That sure was some freaky shit.
Not to mention the guy who cut his girlfriend up and took some photos of her. WTF people.
I've been having some bad dreams lately due to all this. Plus there was a car accident here through the week and a young mother died and we had some other bad news.
I sometimes feel like finding a small cave somewhere and hiding away from the world. I want to gather my brood and put them back in the safe box I had them in.
You know I remember when Anita Cobby was killed. And it was one of the most shocking things we'd ever heard of. Everyone was horrified and it was probably the beginning of feeling unsafe for a lot of women out at night. But you know, things like that happen so much now, we're not even surprised. You hear that someone has had their head cut off on a bus trip, for no reason, and you're so desensitised, you're not even that disturbed by it. You can just keep cooking dinner like it 'twas nuthin.
I wonder sometimes what will become of the world. It seems so violent you wonder how the tide can be turned. I have this vision of it ending like Escape From New York.
I hope Snake Plissken is there. He can share my cave.
