Hm.

No good men or bad, just circumstances and the changing of them.

Whoa.

It's a never-ending cycle, isn't it?
Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

Well, sure.  As I said, it's a morality tale.  It's America.  You can even label the characters according to American tropes.

The Preacher is the reformer.
The Undertaker is the corporate prison system, banks, etc.
The pastor is the megachurch minister in his finery.
The first bartender is the yahoo hooting over CNN war footage.
The second bartender is the man in the street.
The 4 horsemen are the various agencies that police us (which is which should be obvious).
And so on.

Bravo! I had no idea when I'd see the end of this when I found myself distracted from this place. There isn't one.

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

Right. One of the themes about "heaven & hell" as concepts that fascinates me is that they both are about who's your boss, and how your boss supposedly do. In this particular tale it seems to me you have a man struggling to effectively take over "hell" and getting what he worked for. From the impression left on me from before I ditched for a while this was the saddest outcome I'd considered. Not all good, and too few realistic, morality stories are happy ones.


Gonna work on some of my personal story and dump some few other things I've been working on  later.
