Dry, cool, and it will warm under the cloudless sky. Wish it would rain.

The village volunteer fire department were called out again yesterday. Another grass fire.

Which reminds me – Wichita had an apartment fire, one died. They also had several armed robberies, three or four car accident and a couplle of shootings. Noisy place, Wichita.

One of the sad things was:

Joseph Randle arrested in Wichita

– ‎11 hours ago‎

Sedgwick County arrest records show former Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle has been arrested in Wichita. Police say he was arrested after hitting three people with his car in a residential neighborhood in the 8600 block of E. Scott Street

One realizes that people in contact sports must be a bit more aggressive than the average, and that age sometimes turns grumpy aggressive into active violence; I’m wondering however, with all the sports head injuries when will CAT scans for brain damage be used in a court of law as a legal defense for present acts, vs. past damage.

It’ll come, sometime, I’m sure, and I’ll not know if PTSD is any defense either.

But that type of thinking is my maudlin speculation.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
