Hmm. You are definitely trying to disqualify yourself from serving in Bruce Golding's cabinet.

On t'other hand, Dennis would be pleased.

Interesting story, Goffrey. I remember being roped in to administer such a beating once when I was in high school too. I actually intended to dish out my share of the beatings too, but when I saw the first set of blows land and how the guys in question just stood and took their beating, I realised how horrible we (the beaters) were being, and I didn't throw any licks... I didn't try to stop the beating though, perhaps because I thought they might turn around and drop some licks on me.

Dear Fragano and Mad Bull,

Give thanks for the comments. They are the perfect affirmation for this short story because, my brothers, you know the runnings and it dread.

The story works, but you have lived through this, so your words mean a lot to me.

And, yes, Fragano, I hope Dennis would have been proud.

Mad Bull,

I read the post and the comments. The last comment was scary, but that is what fear will do or will stop us from doing--as with your story.

Thanks, again, for the comments
