The Other Day

My kid got bit by a dog. I knew it was my neighbor's dog, because it is a Dobermann, and Dobermanns bite. I told the owner to keep the dog tied up, and he said he would, yet I feared my son might get bit again, because I knew the owner won't tie the dog up. I asked my neighbor to show me the chain, and he wouldn't let me in the back yard to verify that the dog was tied up, thus I knew he was lying. So I grabbed my rifle, picked the lock to my neighbor's back yard, walked back to where the doghouse was, and started shooting. I have to make sure that this dog doesn't bite my kid, so I'm completely justified in doing this.

Well, I found out, after I shot the dog, that it was, indeed tied up, just like his owner said. However, when the vet showed up to try to help the dog, he discovered that the dog had rabies, and would have to be put down. So I don't understand why the rest of the neighborhood is upset that I shot the dog when it turned out that I did everyone a favor by killing a rabid animal.

Now I happen to know, because Steve called his momma and told me, that this is an allegory. The "I" in the story is Bush. The neighbor is Saddam, his back yard is Iraq...

and I still think King Bush is a fool or an egomaniac or both; maybe he is a foolish egomaniac.

Interesting allegory. I'm going to have to go back and read it again.

I'm not sure how useful an allegory that is - but its certainly an interesting insight into the psyche of Steve...
