Advice about bullies from Patrick Swayze's mother:
Edited on Wed Sep-16-09 02:05 PM by Are_grits_groceries

Even as a teenager, this firstborn son of a cowboy and a choreographer boasted a rugged grace, excelling both on the football gridiron and at the ballet barre. Like John Travolta, whose mother was also a choreographer, Swayze had swagger and sincerity.

But he wasnt one for locker-room bragging, which he disdained as kill-that-guy talk. Between that and the ballet lessons, he was frequently roughed up by the local bullies for being a sissy. Swayze followed the counsel of his mother, Patsy: Take your ballet slippers outta your pocket and beat the stuffin out of them them being the bullies.

Rahm or somebody needs to use ballet slippers or something to rhetorically or otherwise beat the stuffin' out of somebody. You can be a gentleman and still make people wish they had never messed with you.

1. Indeed ..... real men are marked their values and not their bravado
Many *real men* dance or carry purses or otherwise fall outside the norm of those who wish they were men.

2. Back when I was in school, I fought near everyday. Never lost a fight to a bully.
Now, you get punched by a bully, and you dont fight back, you still get suspended. Zero tolerance.
