It's on You, Joe

Alert: today's theme is "It's all Joe Moore's fault," the least favorite blog post theme of Moore apologists.

This Summer


When one of our young boys out of shear boredom dons his uniform white tee and bikes to the corner seeking work as a look-out...

you have to wonder...

What if he had a choice?

When one of our kids lies bleeding out on the sidewalk with a cap in his butt...

you have to wonder...

What if he had been shooting baskets in the gym instead?

When roving bands of our children open the annual neighborhood gooning season...

you have to wonder...

What if they had somewhere to go?

When our police break up another domestic, help another woman up from the floor of her kitchen...

you have to wonder...

What if one or both of that couple could get out of the house occasionally to somewhere that wasn't a bar?

Yeah, well, you can wonder all you want but we'll never know how many lives could have been changed in some small way this summer.

It's on you, Joe Moore. It's all on you.

Life goes on while Joe Moore plays his power trip games.

Moore has delayed this for 12 years, what's a few more months?

Give that man a violin! Then, like his ancient Roman counterpart, Nero, he can fiddle while the ward burns. Burn, baby, burn!
