Last great act.....


Don't know if you're old enough to remember....but there used to be a cartoon depicting a large bird of prey, talons outstretched, about to sink em into this little mouse. The mouse stood defiant awaiting his fate with arm outstretched and his middle finger raised to the bird in that last great act of defiance. Ok , so what does that have to do with anything? Read a story today that brought that image to mind. Out in the Southwest, can't remember the state, they are mired in a long dry drought. Apparently a man caught a mouse . Why did he catch it? that I don't know, but he decided to rid himself of this rodent by flinging it into a pile of burning brush. Why was he burning brush in tinder box conditions? That and the reason anyone would throw any living creature into a fire escapes me. The mouse quickly caught fire but in one last great act of defiance, it jumped from the pile and in a blaze of glory ran back inside the man's house which promptly caught fire and burned to the ground.

Karma or justice? I don't know but it sure makes ya think......
