“YOU CAUSED THAT MAYHEM!”

Someone hand-wrote commentary all through a 3 day old newspaper I was looking at in a waiting room. The handwriting and certain hints make me picture an older lady, but one can’t know for sure. On an article about a woman who stabbed someone outside a bar, the commentator wrote “WHAT A CRAZY BITCH” with an arrow pointing to the picture of the accused. On an article about killer Dylan Roof was written: “EXECUTE THIS SCUM NOW” with a big arrow pointing at his picture; over an article about the Death Penalty in Washington state: “BRING ON THE DEATH PENALTY NOW AND START EXECUTING!” Over an article about Amazon plans to hire 100,000: “& ALL THE SHOPPING MALLS CLOSE THEN WHAT”. Over an article about a crazy guy who stabbed several people in his home: “& YOU CAN ROT IN JAIL” with an arrow pointing to his picture; over an article about a crazy lady who was fighting with sheriff’s deputies: “YOU BITCH ROT IN JAIL OR…WHEREVER! YOU CAUSED THAT MAYHEM!” Again, the helpful arrow. Over an article about a man accused of vehicular assault: “THIS SOB IS AT FAULT AND CAN ROT IN PRISON” with a helpful arrow pointing to a circled paragraph over which was: “GUILTY!” All the articles about violence were circled, along with a piece saying cigarette smoking costs the world one trillion annually (which makes mad at the cigarette companies too)…Amusing extremes, crazy person calling people crazy…and yet…

As I went on looking for these impromptu newspaper cliff notes, I started to find things like this: over a picture of Jeff Sessions the words “PISS ON HIM, RACIST LIAR”; and stuff about Trump “MAKE TRUMP PAY FOR THAT WALL” and on an article about the Wells Fargo scandal: “THEY SUCK”…and I started thinking, hey this lady, agrees with ME, she isn’t so crazy after all…And as far as I’m concerned they can execute Dylan Roof right away…

Anyway, perhaps what she’s doing is healthier than bringing YOU BITCH ROT IN HELL to social media…
