Brother against brother, neighbor
Against neighbor, kingdom against
Kingdom, stirring up anger and hate;
But they will perish in so doing.
Two US teenage brothers were home alone in their suburban neighbourhood when an argument over loud music spiralled out of control, police say, leaving one brother dead from a knife to the chest and the other accused of killing him. William Gorzynski, 15, was in juvenile custody on a second-degree murder charge in the Monday afternoon death of 14-year-old Matthew Gorzynski. According to police in Coral Springs, about 72 kilometres north of Miami, Matthew was playing music on a home computer. William was watching television nearby and complained the volume was too loud. He told him to turn it down. Matthew refused. The two yelled at each other, then fought. Then William went to the kitchen, grabbed a 18-centimetre knife and stabbed his brother in the upper left chest, Sgt. Joe McHugh said. William called an ambulance soon after and told the dispatcher he had just stabbed his brother. "It's actually a confession on tape," McHugh said. "He's actually describing what occurred. This was definitely not accidental." The 14-year-old died about an hour later at a nearby hospital. Prosecutors said no decision has been made on whether the teen will be charged as a juvenile or an adult, and no formal charges have been filed yet.

I agree with you completely. We pretend to be so very different and separate from wild animals, and in truth, we're really pretty basic creatures -- we just have shinier toys. We have cyclic patterns that seem somewhat clear to see, and I agree that to presume a continuation of these cycles is not a huge leap of faith. What strikes me with some of these writings is the sheer poetry and turn of phrase.... it is so vivid and visceral sometimes that it makes me wonder if the author was experiencing a vision, rather than just making a prognostication.
Yep, I read the novel. Perhaps I was still in the throes of aggrivation because I read Grisham's "The Bleachers" right before that. Oboy. Unrequited love that has lasted FOR-ever........ and bunch of buildup AND! the startling conclusion........ CONTINUED UNREQUITTED LOVE! weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
yes, I have issues.
