If Barack Obama starred in The Good, The Bad and the Ugly

Based on a true story.

The essence of this tragedy, it seems to me, derives from a fundamental absence of empathy on the part of the violent... inability to imagine, or connect with, the humanity and suffering of others.

Such a failure of empathy, such numbness to the pain of a child or the desperation of a parent, is not innate; nor, history tells us, is it unique to a particular culture, religion, or ethnicity...

It may find expression in a particular brand of violence, and may be channeled by particular demagogues or fanatics...

Most often, though, it grows out of a climate of poverty and ignorance, helplessness and despair.

**KA-BLAMM!!** **KA-BLAMMM!!!**


Why'd you kill him? He was just talking... and talking.

You see, in this world there are two kinds of people, my friend.

Those with loaded guns. And those who talk.
