Doughnut dilemma

Unfortunately, humanity includes all sort of people - including these

I agree wholeheartedly with Mr. Harding on the shameful display of supposed manliness in slicing donuts on our park lawns. However, one thing is certain, there are those who walk among us who have the right to vote, but whose intellect does little to support civil, conscientious society. Unfortunately, we all must cope with such ignorance.

The  recommended approaches to counter such actions are certainly worth a try. However, I fear any countermeasures will fall on deaf ears and eyes when directed at certain members of our society … we are, basically, stuck with these people and their ingrained mindsets.

When confronted by such events, I reflect on what the actor John Wayne said … “Life is tough, and even tougher when you’re stupid”.
