arma virumque cano (et alia)
Why would you empathize with the maniac? The other guy was already parked and loading groceries into his car. With his mother and his daughter present. Who knows how far the car next to him was over the line when he parked, like a half an hour earlier?Road rage traditionally is a moving violation. This guy is just dangerously stupid.No guns would be a good start. Joining the human race might prove a bit more difficult.
Empathy? So you've done something like this before?
"the action of understanding, being aware of, being sensitive to, and vicariously experiencing the feelings, thoughts, and experience of another of either the past or present without having the feelings, thoughts, and experience fully communicated in an objectively explicit manner"
Fair enough. So you just felt like doing something like this?
Can we look forward to Steve calling Mikeb a criminal?
Yes, anyone who threatens with a shotgun (especially over a parking space) is acting criminally. I use Greg's statements of examples of what is criminal activity.
