Here’s your library joke for the day.
A man walked into a library and the librarian pulled out a gun and shot him dead. The cops rushed in and arrested the librarian on the spot.
“Why am I under arrest?” asked the librarian. “Are you arresting me for shooting that guy?”
“No,” said the cops. “You are under arrest for not using a silencer.”
It would seem the police missed the bigger transgression.
That is a common mistake. In our addiction, we minimize what really matters. In the fog of our cunning, baffling, powerful disease, we fail to recognize the things we are doing that are destroying those around us.
