    I once heard someone state "we lost humility for the sake of self-confidence".

    It rang true then. Now, I think it's changed to "we lost empathy for the sake of self-confidence". And it's not just the new generation. People of all ages have adjusted to put themselves above everyone else. What we should be doing is putting ourselves EQUAL to everyone else. I am not more important than you - you are not more important than me. Each situation should be looked at individually before deciding who "wins" - and compromise should always be the first consideration.

    That's a good way to be.

    People in that mind set come together, work together and advance themselves and those around them.

    Those without that mindset tend to be left out and limited in resources.

    Those invasive oriental bars who search out chicken teriyaki are the most dangerous bars.

    Last Novemeber at Shawnee state park I went outside at about 2:30 AM in total darkness, in a half inebriated state, to burn a stogie. The black shape that emerged from the darkness about 15' away turned out not to be the black lab of the people a few sites down that I thought it was lol. I think I scared Mr Bar as he ran off, and later I heard him flipping the dumpster lids open. The next day at about 4 in the afternoon I decided to go get a burger and some cocktails at a local watering hole in Manns Choice. About a mile from the campground Mr Bar ran across the highway in front of me, came close to creaming him and probably would of totaled the GMC. Had to be the same one....pesky damn bears.

    I, Hatchet Jack, being of sound mind and broke legs, do hereby leaveth my bar rifle to whatever finds it, Lord hope it be a white man. It is a good rifle, and killt the bar that killt me. Anyway, I am dead. Yours truly, Hatchet Jack.
