True that. I have lived long enough to realize that

people can and will rationalize any position, philosophy, theory they hold if and when they care to.

I have heard references to a broken leg, in addition to the

injuries to his spinal cord and other injuries.
Perhaps that accounts, at least partially, for the appearance of not putting full weight on his legs when he was being dragged to the police van.

I have read that young soldiers, wounded and dying on the battlefield,

cry out for their mothers, during wars from the Civil War to WWII, and perhaps our recent and continuing wars.

There most be something very basic about the need for comfort and love from their mothers in the last moments, when life is slipping away.

In SW Ohio, where Kroger headquarters are located,

the stores are unionized. Kroger dominates the market, as it does in so many areas of the country now.

My son formerly worked for Kroger; he now works for the new Fresh Thyme, which is expanding in this area. I believe Fresh Thyme's headquarters are in Indianapolis. I understand Fresh Thyme is backed by Meijer.

Thanks, Malaise, from all of us.

Love this song.
I'm not terminal, not much even ill, but slowing down with age.
Love so many "friends" on DU, though they may not know it.
Steve gives us so much, regularly, daily.

Pride is likely the greatest sin. - so many other sins

emanate from pride, including indifference mentioned above, sloth, lust, etc.
I believe Love is the greatest virtue; it may be called by other names as well - Charity, Kindness.

If we all just practiced simple human kindness.....
