I wasn’t going to post anything because today I was feeling a bit fed up, but tonight there will be little sleep and I have to share something with you.
In all my years — and they are many — I have never, until tonight, witnessed a random act of violence and must tell you, people, I feel thoroughly sick. Our people don’t do such things. My circle of people take pictures, make drawings, talk shit, sing songs, catch fish, design buildings, fight fires, drive trucks, play music, make tables, write drivel, get drunk, plaster walls, lay bricks, cook food, raise children and tell bad jokes.
But tonight, when our people were gathered at a music venue where some of our very best musicians were playing, and where some of our very worst amateurs were treated with the same respect you’d accord to a recovered Peter Green, a worm inserted itself among the good, decent people.
I saw a man attack another man for no reason and cause real harm. I have never seen such a thing in all my life and I am horrified.
