Well my mustached Ranger friend, I have a slightly different take on the fact that he's a lawman and thus immune to at least a modicom of 'losing it."Originally Posted by Lone Ranger
If I see from my perspective (and I do try when I come here), I would feel this young man with such an idealistic sense might well take it up a notch if only because of the cowardly attack, for a quick(relative) instant he could lash out at a friend, steal a horse, breakdown a door, then in a moment of clarity realize, he needs a good stiff Sasperilla, just the fact he took a drink tells me he ain't no saint nor stranger to opening a "pop"
And the four crimes you mention ...the word crimes is a little over the top for me. More like frustration and blind anger that really hurt no one, Tonto surely would understand Reid's need to lash out at the nearest person.
Lone Ranger you are a good man for letting me use you as my sparing partner since I came on board, I do appreciate your well thought, rational parrys to my thrusts...and your mask & mustache photo, bonus, 'cause it always makes me smile.
Anyway, we won't convert each other but I really enjoy hearing these opposite and varied viewpoints within rational discussions...it's what the world needs now!
