No More Mr Nice Guy.
Someone said to me the other day "Yeah, but Obama is a nice man. I'd have a drink with him" and my first thought was "Sure. He's cool. I bet he's a lovely dad; I bet he's good company. We could talk Bruce Springsteen and healthcare reforms and snork over his fucking brilliant Trump slam-down last week."
But then I remembered that none of my other friends (and I checked, NONE of them) have ever given orders that resulted in the deaths of other people. Let alone of children. Conscious directives, never mind yer collateral damage. And I though, "Not such a regular guy after all. In fact, an entirely un-regular guy."
And that made me shiver.
