Project 313 – Post No. 065

It’s Sunday . . . well, not as I’m writing this, but I’m projecting. Sunday is one of the two days each week when we don’t visit the gym. 

Statistically, it’s also the day of the week the blog (this blog; not other blogs) receives the fewest views. 

I’m debating whether I should reward my few readers with some of my deep thinking or reward my few readers with a day free of any deep thinking . . . hmm . . . decisions, decisions. 

You know what? I think most readers would appreciate a shorter post.

You are welcome.

And now, the photo:

Project 313 065

We’ve driven by this bike often. It’s on Waikoloa Road as it nears the High Road. We call it the High Road but it’s actually HI-190, also known as Hawaiʻi Belt Road, also known as Mamalahoa Hwy.

A few days ago I stopped and snapped a photo and read the name. It turns out — as I had guessed — it’s a memorial for someone who died there. A biker from Michigan was struck and killed by a cop who then left the scene. (HERE, HERE, HERE)

Three years later, the trial has yet to go forward. There really are different rules for people in the system than there are for the rest of us. It’s not the case just with cops, but with lawyers, doctors, politicians . . . any organization of professionals charged with our well-being. They seldom pay the price for transgressions any one of us would pay dearly for. 

It’s the world we live in and no matter how much we tell each other we wished it were different, if it involves someone we know, few of us are above asking for special pleading. 

It should be the opposite . . . people with power and privilege should be held to a higher standard.

A cursory perusal of the news should be enough to convince everyone how much that’s not so . . . but it would be if I were King. Maybe someday. 

Oh yeah; Mr. Boffo often has cartoons dealing with the criminal justice system. He also has a way with words, he does. 

I was struggling with naming today’s doodle . . . and then it hit me . . . Gesundheit!


And . . . that’s it

Some of these posts will likely be longer as the mood hits me, but most will be thus; short, uninteresting, bland, and relentless.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

Please, if you are considering bestowing me recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so.  I will decline blogger-to-blogger awards.   I appreciate the intent behind it, but I prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way.  That would mean something to me.

If you wish to know more, please read below.

Note: to those who may click on “like”, or rate the post; if you do not hear from me, know that I am sincerely appreciative, and I thank you for noticing what I do.

Finally, if you interpret anything on this blog as me asking or wanting pity, sympathy, or complaining about my life, or asking for help and advice, know you’re likely missing my subtle mix of irony, sarcasm, and humor.

  1. I liked this post. And this thought….” people with power and privilege should be held to a higher standard.” And the bicycle memorial.
    It’s a beautiful day here in Connecticut. I hope it is a beautiful day where you are, too.

      High vog hire today and very warm . . . but, I spent my day doing stuff I liked, so a good day. Thank you.

      Edited to add: dang phone. There are high vog warnings here today but I’m planning on spending my day indoors doing stuff I like. Thanks.

  3. Sunday is a day of rest. Or golf!

      What do you mean “or”? I thought they were one and the same.

      Actually, I’ve haven’t golfed in two years and a few days. A friend reminded me the U.S. Open was on, but I couldn’t muster the interest to watch more than a few minutes.

    I never (at least anymore) check views or any other stats. It once was important to me, then it became less important and now I just don’t care at all about stats. What I do care about is the quality of the content and the great comments folks make from time to time.

      I get notices for likes so I have a general idea. The views are fairly constant between 20 and 30 unless one of my regular readers is behind and decides to catch up.

      I too mainly focus on the comments (also usually from the same people). I do check the subscriptions once in a while to clean out some of the junk ones.

  5. I assure you it’s Monday not Sunday. I knew you were behind the times but this is ridiculous.

  6. PHOTO: A sad, but beautiful memorial and important reminder.

      Yeah . . . sometimes it’s better to not know. It changes things a bit whenever we’ll drive by it. I knew it was a memorial of sorts, but now I know the details and like you said . . . sad.

      Yeah, the cartoon explains much . . . on the other hand, Sam Cooke got a song out of it.

      Just to be clear, my sneezes are nowhere near that colorful.

      Thank you, Carolyn.

    Nice flowery mandala art!

      Thank you. I tripped while carrying a bunch of paint brushes, and this is what happened when they hit the floor.

      I kid, of course. I slaved over that for nearly five minutes.
