A Personal Reflection on Current Events

The cover shot for this month's Kicking You In...

My best friend in college hanged himself. He wasn’t gay. It broke my heart, but nobody famous took any notice.

We’re all against bullying of course, but it’s a fact of life. Everyone gets targeted for whatever it is that makes them different, and if you’re absolutely normal in all respects, you’ll be targeted for being too perfect.

I put my son in tae kwon do classes at an early age. I said it was for fitness and confidence and all the usual stuff, but really it was so that any needlessly cruel behavior directed toward him could be addressed via a kick in the teeth.

Sometimes you have to beat someone’s ass to teach him how to get along with the rest of the human race . . .
