Yesterday a woman commented that she was not happy that there is any crime where we live. She wants zero crime.
Sitting with what that could possibly entail, I came across this quote by Anton Chekhov who lived 1860 to 1904:
"I can't accept "our nervous age" since mankind has been nervous during every age. Whoever fears nervousness should turn into a sturgeon or smelt; if a sturgeon makes a stupid mistake, it can only be one: to end up on a hook, and then in a pan in a pastry shell."
Then, a friend sent this latest post on her blog. It offers an enlightened view.
