Oscar Wilde said “Murder is always a mistake – one should never do anything one cannot talk about after dinner”

Local newspaper items for the last week or so bemoan what has turned out to be a strong upsurge for murders in 2005 and how this problem can be addressed this next year. Since when have murders been committed according to a timetable? Do criminals plot to see just how many crimes they can commit based on the calendar? Do people who view themselves at potential victims let out a sigh of relief at midnight each New Year’s eve thinking. “well that’s over with, time to reset the body count to zero and see what happens this year”?

Murder happens one victim at a time and needs to be addressed in that manner. Work on solving them while striving to prevent others. It isn’t a contest where you need to keep score and don’t look at the clock or calendar.

About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.
