Justice


Osama Bin Laden, Ratko Mladic, Jose de Jesus Mendez Vargas, and Whitey Bulger.

Something is going on out there in the back alleys of the world where good and evil duke it out. Bad guys are falling left and right. We can debate lots of things, like whether or not Al Gore is an international sex symbol, but we can't debate that the four individuals named above are bad news bears all the way. All of them supposedly untouchable and beyond the reach of law, and yet one, two, three, four one dead and three arrested. I'm taking it as a sign towards brighter days for all of us. Unless you are evil too, then you better lay low for a while. This is not your time.

If Justice is suddenly in vogue then where is mine?

If there is a surplus of justice going around then I would like to finally get the opportunity to dunk a basketball on a 10' rim. If the world is righting itself towards fairness, and bending the arc of the universe a little more towards justice, then when can I get a vacation? Where is my serendipitous good thing?
An Ellsworth Truth maybe? A fleeting smile from a pretty girl?

Come on Universe, hook a brother up. I try my best every day.

The way to get it is to truely not need it.

Then I am doomed.

Makes for good art.

Justice only serves the Evil on an individual basis; the Good are served as a collective.
Dunks are for the Evil; the Righteous prefer a solid layup.

I was going to post something witty and delphic, but Mungam beat me to the punch -- witty *and* true. (And appeals to the old-line Lefty in me.)

Man, you got some wise brothers, Juancho.

It's true. You should come hang out sometime.
