Kissed With Apocalypse, The Rest

I thought things were supposed to be, you know, like real progressive up there.  At least it seemed that way on Gilmore Girls (I was forced to watch). 

This clip of a 78-year-old, Hartford, Connecticutt man getting run over in the middle of the street, almost intentionally it seems,  is one of the more shocking things I’ve seen in awhile.  I wish I could say that was so because of the fact that, well, I don’t typically see people get run over everyday.  Unfortunately, the more uncanny thing about this footage is the apparent realization that no one seemed to give a shit. 

Several cars drive past, pedestrians gawk but don’t seem particularly concerned, it really is a mind blast.  Hell, some guy on a Vespa actually does figure 8’s around the victim’s motionless body before riding off to what I presume was the nearest independent coffee house.  When people that own Vespa’s stop caring, you know we’re f*cked, and, for better or worse, I’m sure this video will feed the egos of all the pundits espousing the gradual moral decay in our society.

I’ve always thought that was a bit of a politically motivated myth. I’ve taken it with a pound of salt, you know (as I do with most things even remotely political), but maybe I should cut back on my sodium.  At least the police got there at an alarmingly quick clip.  I guess we can put that potential myth to bed…

    Someone called the police. The police car was there moments later. The more disturbing thing is seeing those cars make a hairpin turn to escape.

    That is just horrible. Hope he didn’t get any permanent injuries.
