Years back (how long has it been?) Rodney King, after he got that horrendous beating from the LAPD, asked plaintively: "Can we just ALL get along"?.

Does any of this sound familiar in today's society?
You are absolutely right in painting today's societal maladies as emanating from human's overweening EGO. Racial disharmony should not be included in those maladies, but because of political misdirection )Obama/Holder), monetary conscription ( Al Sharpton/Jesse Jackson) and liberal angst (MSNBC), some people have and continues to stir the pot of racial tension and division.

The senseless murders of good decent people in a SC church on Wednesday June 17, 2015 got me to thinking --if anybody ever deserved the death...
