07/17/2005: Our sympathies go out today....
to Tommy "Big Stupid Tommy" Acuff, who found himself becoming a statistic last night when the store he works at as a manager was robbed at gunpoint. Hopefully, there'll be a satisfying ending to the story:
An opinion?While thankfully, nobody got (physically) hurt, being the victim of a crime of violence like that is still traumatic in itself. So we give Tommy and his co-workers our best wishes for a speedy recovery from the adrenaline rush, and no lasting psychological effects.
They'll get them. There are cameras. We've got them on several cameras. One of them even looks straight at a camera at one point. Even while trying to sort the shit in my head out, I thought to myself "how could you be so blinkard pig-stupid as not wear masks or to think there aren't cameras?"
Nobody got hurt. That's another fact. I can share that. I can't put into words how thankful I am for that. I largely find myself wandering the line of the agnostic in life, lately, but I did say the small prayer "God, if you're listening, I appreciate that...."
