"it’s amazing reading the amount of negativity about the ice bucket challenge. no, it is not perfect. yet…nothing is. wasting water? not great. testing on animals? also frightening. my sister alyson has been systematically breeding a killing zebra fish for the past 15 years to try to find a cure for leukemia. she quit her first job because the lab was experimenting on cats. she couldn’t take it. fish? she could take. everybody draws lines. life is messy. i wonder if the people writing those comments are all strict vegans. i wonder where they draw their lines. it’s hard.
my best friend anthony has a rare form of leukemia, and is about to have a bone marrow transplant. if it works it will save his life. i don’t know how much of that technology was tested on animals. i know it’s probably not simple.
alyson and i watched our older step-brother, karl, die of ALS, when i was about 21, alyson was 25, and karl was about 27. it was really horrific. karl was gorgeous and talented and strong and hilarious. an idol to us. he played bass, started bands, painted, introduced me to rocky horror, the cure and the cocteau twins. watching him deteriorate slowly; first losing sensation in him hands and wondering what the hell was wrong. then asking my parents at our dinner table if they had any theories about what it might be (his dad, my step-father john, is a PhD and usually has answers), then watching him relegated to a wheelchair, then to a bed….then dead. it was fucking tragic. i still haven’t made sense of it, years later.
if there had been a cure for ALS, and karl could be here now, if he could be part of my life, part of my family, sharing music and art with me….? coming to my gigs? playing bass on my records? painting masterpieces? able to come to thanksgiving this year, where there’s always an empty space where he once was?
i’m not sure what i would give to have that.
i know i would give a bucket of water.
i know i’d probably give more than that.
but i don’t have that choice. he’s gone and he’s not coming back. ” — My Comments :

"St. Louis- On Tuesday, while tensions continued to simmer in Ferguson, just a few miles away 25-year-old Kajieme Powell was gunned down by St. Louis cops.

This. Suicide-by-cop is likely how this will end up, but non-lethal training should be must.

I agree that this guy was asking for trouble, but does anyone have an objection to that statement?
