Down on the Corner

Apparently The Corner protagonist De'Andre McCullough (hopefully I got the meaningless, decorative apostrophe placed correctly) has shuffled off this mortal coil. Surely someone will eventually lament the vicious socioeconomic circumstances that forced poor Andy into the life he led.

But I'll remember the strutting punk who, on page 43 in The Corner, bragged to his fellow punks about grabbing a stray tomcat who had been casing Andy's pigeon coops, breaking the animal's legs one by one, hanging it from a tree, dousing it with lighter fluid, and setting it on fire. I have no sympathy whatsoever for someone who does something like that, they're a half-step above a child rapist.

Karma takes some time to arrive, if she ever does, but when she does, she's a bitch.
