Armor of God

I loved this part of the story on Dallas Cowboy Keith Davis who was shot around 5:00 a.m. this weekend (The second time he has been shot in three years.): At the time of the shooting, Mr. Davis said, he was returning home from Shreveport, La., where he had spent the weekend with friends and family. "I wasn't going to go home, but I had missed church the previous Sunday," said Mr. Davis, "and we've got training camp coming up, and I didn't want to miss another Sunday. We were going to get home in time to change clothes and head to church."

Yeah, and when he was interviewed last year at training camp about being shot in 2003, he said "it's all a part of growing up."

Sorry, but I was never shot at riding my bike down Hatcher street in Decatur.

Who the heck leaves Shreveport at 2 AM to drive home? And as for driving a red impala with 22 inch rims to get attention, well he got it. Yes there is more to the story. Maybe the thugs thought they were "disrespected" because he passed them on the highway.

I wonder how many people he thinks believes his story. I laughed when I heard it and that was even without knowing he had been shot before.

To 10:53, otherwise known as brick shithouse. GROW UP!! Does it make you feel tough to use profanity in your name? Or does it make you feel tough to remarks like that towards others? Either way, grow up!!

YIKES!
I think Mr. Davis just made the point that; if you miss Sunday services you run the risk of being shot the next time you go to church! That is HARSH!

Incidentally, brick shitHEAD...I am certain the pack of wolves that raised you have no problem with you wishing harm on to other people but DECENT people do not appreciate your kind.

But our very own blogmaster thougth it was "good stuff" that a real estate agent was stabbed 27 times. Not sure we mind wishing or celebrating harm to others around here.

I believe the "good stuff" Barry referenced was the extreme manner in which Ms. Walker lived her life NOT that she was stabbed 27 times.

The good stuff comment, I believe, related to a well written and researched article. Nothing more.

An article about a person being slaughtered can never be "good stuff". It's bad stuff. A well written and researched article on exactly how a little girl was plucked off her bicycle, taken to the woods, violated and murdered. One that described the process of selection by her killer and reminded us of her innocence up until the day she died. Would that be "good stuff"? How about a Mickey Spillane-quality article describing the bloody scene of the daily fatal accident in Wise County. Maybe that's GREAT stuff. I don't know. All I know is that our society seems a little numb to all its ills. Until it happens to us, and maybe sometimes even after it has, these stories just seem out there happening to other people...and instead of contemplating the person, or the family, or the pain and suffering, it's instead "good stuff". Maybe there's just so much that we couldn't bear it if we stopped and empathized with it all.

Thank you for making my point regarding the "good stuff" being referenced by Barry as that of how well Ms. Walker lived her LIFE and NOT the circumstances of her demise.

However, I must disagree with you in your assumption "that our society seems a little numb to all its ills." The fact that the circumstances surrounding the untimely end of a noncelebrity/regular Joe makes the news indicates society still has an interest in "its ills." The fact there are government agencies assuring the safety of the food, products, and medicine offered to "our society" belies your claim of our being a "little numb." Just because people in "our society" do not wail and slam their foreheads with the palms of their hands when faced with a human tragedy, as personally witnessed by people in Middle Eastern, Central and South American countries, does not mean "our society" is "a little numb" it just means "our society" is inclined to react in a less demonstrative and perhaps more constructive manner.

and your point is? said...

6:21 PM. You are right in a way. There is so much going on in our society today. Of course we empathize with these people, such as the real estate lady and her family. But, there is a time when we put on our thick skin.
Some of us work in business' where we see it on a daily basis. If we didn't make light of it, we wouldn't be able to live our lives. That's just the world.
