The results of his invective have been shocking, with an average of around 37 people per day killed in extrajudicial fashion. Representatives from the U.N. as well as international human-rights groups have condemned the rampant slaughter, to which Duterte’s response has been dismissive.

“I don’t care about human rights, believe me,” Duterte said in early August.

“He was quite sensitive to our war on drugs and he wishes me well in my campaign and said that we are doing, as he so put it, ‘the right way’ ”

    This is an example of what the “edge” has become; a bitter ex-wife who didn’t get custody of the kids and now is determined to denigrate, criticize, and belittle everything the man does in order to destroy him and prove herself right.

    1. JP says:

      If the “ex-husband” in your scenario is bringing hombres like Duterte around the kids, I think the “ex wife” might have a pretty good case…..

    2. DB says:

      I bet you are divorced and can’t figure out why

    3. George Grumbach says:

      I will avoid further comment except to note that RAC’s choice of making an ex-wife rafher than an ex-husband the villain in his metaphor says it all about RAC. Do the readers care to guess RAC’s gender?

BOB GRAY: Children’s Crusade

Friday, Feb 23 - Following the latest school shooting atrocity in Parkland, Florida, another Children’s Crusade is rising: a largely youth-bred movement meant to persuade legislators to take some meaningful action to stem the needless deaths of our country’s children in schools.

Enough

Wednesday, Feb 21 - It didn’t take long for me to realize that the young adults of Parkland were cutting through the layers of despair I had built up all these years. They were telling their truth with passion and conviction.

Cockroaches, Lent and felled innocence

Tuesday, Feb 20 - On an average, 96 people a day are killed by gunfire in the United States. Yesterday, 17 children were killed in Florida. That leaves 79 others whose names and faces we won’t be seeing online or in print, but they are still dead.
