Speaking of the underworld – and reading the fucking paper (I knew there was a reason I didn’t do this often) how far would you go to protect a child that was not your own? Total stranger versus relative versus your own child. Would you just stand there and let some mean-ass adult beat a child bloody? I couldn’t. It is a tough question, because a) the child has no physical hope of fending off a violent attack from an adult and b) (depending on age) has no framework to decide whether said violent attack is justified or deserved or not. Also, in my rummaging about I found some old letters. I stared at the package for a good twenty minutes before I put it back where I found it. I didn’t read them, but neither could I throw them away.
