Blue Star

Immortal

I have chronicled justice many times in this column. It knows no color. The woman (black) who shot up a McDonald’s after not getting bacon on her cheeseburger …. The 650-pound man (white) who phoned in a bomb threat, then claimed he was too fat to get out of bed and appear in court … Now this. It’s a small world, after all. We’re one big happy race of idiots.

Now I am 60 I should grow up and accept it’s too late. Aspirations have turned to ashes. What’s left? Second childhood and mere oblivion, sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.

Nothing like a quote from a Shakespeare comedy to cheer a boy up. So buoyed, I have made plans to join the service.

Should I be all I can be? One of the few, the proud? Aim high? Semper fi or paratus? What?
