Lots of activity around here folks! Mostly me going out every hour and collecting Japanese beetles off of my knockout rose bushes. They're easy to catch. I just put the cup of soapy water beneath them where they're
So what's with the butterfly on my zinnia plants at the beginning of this post? Well, it's what I prefer to dwell on this beautiful, if hot and humid, Saturday morning, the first day of August, beauty. While I'm observing and appreciating beauty, Dr. Walter Palmer, the Lion Killing Dentist from Minnesota is in hiding as one would expect of a coward. Big man hunting big game. As one of the late night comedians said, "If Dr. Palmer has an erection problem, we have other methods (Viagra) to address that problem. He doesn't have to travel to Africa and spend $50,000 to shoot a tame lion."
Now you know when Betty White is pissed, you have a problem. And folks, don't feel one bit sorry for this pathetic excuse for a human being that Dr. Walter J. Palmer has demonstrated himself to be.
I am so glad I wasn't born with the gene to destroy. The gene to take. I appreciate the beauty that is all around us and how someone could destroy such a beautiful and magnificent creature like Cecil the Lion is almost beyond my comprehension. In fact, my only explanation is that this kind of person is not totally human because he lacks basic humanity. And folks, people like this are all around us. They're not just the stereotype of a criminal but like this dentist, pillar of the community with the sparkly white teeth. Beneath that "clean" veneer is a monster folks, a monster. All around us they lurk, just waiting for their chance to destroy innocent lives and "take." And that term "take" is one thing that especially angered me. Dr. Palmer "apologized" for "taking" Cecil the lion because he didn't know that Cecil was a "beloved" animal in the Zimbabwe National park. Doesn't terms like "take" get to you? Hey dirtbag, you KILLED Cecil the Lion, you didn't "take" him.

So the coward, Dr. Walter J. Palmer is now in hiding. Already there is some backlash to the backlash that maybe vigilante justice went too far by demonstrating at his office. Uh . . . . . . no. The shaming of this coward is appropriate for the crime he committed to satisfy his own outsized ego. See here.

Not to dwell too much on this subject (can you tell I'm very upset about this whole thing?), but what did he do with Cecil's head? Getting it stuffed now? By the way, I heard his wife is a Big Game Hunter too. Uh huh. Some family. Also, I heard that Dr. Palmer settled a sexual harassment suit brought against him by a former employee for over $130,000. Surprised? I'm not.
So Dr. Walter J. Palmer, the Twin Cities Star Dentist, joins America's former "dad", the sexual predator Bill Cosby as being one of the most despised Americans every. They belong together.
