What the fuck is wrong with people lately?

I open the paper to look for a fucking good movie to see and I see something like this:

During a car robbery, the robbers pointed a gun to a woman and asked her to get out of the car. She was with her 13 year-old daughter in the passenger seat and a six year-old boy in the back seat. The mother and the girl leave the car and try to take the boy out, but, before they can take him out of the seat belt, the robbers leave with the car, the boy hanging, outside the car, on his back, tied by the seat belt, with his head banging on the floor.

They have dragged the boy for seven fucking kilometers.

A little boy, dragged to fucking death, hanging from the car, like a fucking bag.

The policemen have said they could barely look at the body.

I am in a total and complete shock as to how a thing like this fucking happens in the first place. I've read a giant article on it, and now I can't stop crying.

I fucking have a six year-old sister, and a five year-old brother, and I don't know what the fuck I would do, had I been in that girl's place. My heart is with his family, and I just hope they will be able to live as best as they can, after this.


You like bowling, don't you, Montag?

If you don't want a man unhappy politically, don't give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. If the government is inefficient, topheavy, and tax-mad, better it be all those than that people worry over it. Peace, Montag. Give the people contests they win by remembering the words to more popular songs or the names of state capitals or how much corn Iowa grew last year. Cram them full of noncombustible data, chock them so damned full of 'facts' they feel stuffed, but absolutely 'brilliant' with information. Then they'll feel like they're thinking, they'll get a sense of motion without moving. And they'll be happy, because facts of that sort don't change. Don't give them any slippery stuff like philosophy or sociology to tie things up with. That way lies melancholy.
