      America's LAST HOPE: vote the GOP OUT in 2014 elections. MAKE them LOSE the House Majority and reduce their numbers in the Senate. Democrats move America forward - Republicans take us backward and are KILLING OUR NATION!

        (Note: None of this is meant to excuse the horrible action of this nasty person who killed this poor woman's companions -- that goes beyond run-of-the-mill assholery.)

        Every single person I've ever met in my life -- from the most gentlemanly gentleman member of the Elk's Lodge to the hippy-dippy activist scholar -- has been an asshole at some point.  Not to me, necessarily, but to somebody.

        We all have the potential to be assholes.  We all are assholes to someone at some point, usually without intending to be.  That's what I meant by "Everybody's got an asshole in 'em." I wasn't talking about the physical one.

        The great challenge is to be conscious, to make an effort to keep the asshole clean and to use it to some benefit because we've all got shit inside us too.  It needs to come out sometimes.  Sometimes it's good to be an asshole, like the teacher that shamed you into doing better; seemed like an asshole at the time, but if it motivated you to do better...
