Some people talk about a vengeful God, but do we really want an angry, vengeful man on the Supreme Court? Especially if he knows, deep down, what he has done and what he is unable (perhaps even to himself) to admit?
That anger has to come from somewhere, and I think now we know its true source.
It was violent. It was about violence. That’s why. And to me Three Billboards is probably the best movie since Crash.
I’m reading Song of Solomon(my daughter recommended it), and here’s something Toni Morrison said about anger, through one of her characters:
“Listen, baby, people do funny things. Specially us. The cards are stacked against us and just trying to stay in the game, stay alive and in the game, makes us do funny things. Things we can’t help. Things that make us hurt one another. We don’t even know why. But look here, don’t carry it inside and don’t give it to nobody else.”
I think the whole country needs Anger Management. I think it should be a required class in high school.
