Well, it's another day of coming to work with a less favorable attitude towards humankind. This attitude was born in the streets of New York, just this morning actually, when the guy behind me at the coffee line thought that his schedule was more urgent than mine. Some people are just impatient and disrespectful of others. If this guy had a bullhook, he would have used it to " guide " me out of his way, very much like how Ringling Bros. Barnum and Bailey Circus guides their elephants to do unnatural and humiliating acts for our entertainment and the circus' profit. Speaking of disrespect, there is yet another video of elephant abuse circulating in the blogosphere. This time, it's in Greece. When will people realize that you can't have a bullhook, and not equate it with beatings? If bullhooks are guiding tools, why does it have a spear point and a sharp hook? You wouldn't consider a bullhook a guiding tool when brought into an elementary school environment.
