This afternoon, after I had loaded up my bicycle's trailer and started home from the grocery store, I passed an older man waiting in the parking lot, solidly built, shoulder slumped, face mask pulled down to his chin, smoking a cigarette, wearing a "blue line" flag t-shirt.

He radiated anger, entitlement, and disappointment.

@emma that sounds like a man who brings happiness into few other lives, and little into his own
