Rules of Polite Behavior

(1) Don't tug on superman's cape.

(2) Don't spit in the wind.

(3) Don't pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger.

A post by Race Bannon on his blog, Race for Justice, a few days back, got me thinking about the late, great Jim Croce. He was one of my favorites. His wife, Astrid, opened Croce's, a restaurant in the Gas Lamp District in San Diego and I go there for supper occasionally when I'm in town.

"Don't go hustling people strange to you even if you do have a two-piece custom made pool cue." (Croce)

"An armed society is a polite society." -- me.

I like Jim, too. The great ones always seem to die too young. Of course, had he lived, he would have killed me for the way I mangled "I Gotta Name" on my blog a while back.

I can't imagine a polite person doing any of these things.

Haha... "Don't spit in the wind" has got to be my favourite. Conjures all kinds of gross and disgusting imagery though :)
