    How do bullies pick their targets? I mean what biased, jerky scale is employed?

    One swift kick to the bullocks.
    Never mind about “fighting fair.” Bullies never fight fair their own g^$%d^$%@d selves.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    There is a lot being said these days about bullies and being bullied. I was picked on pretty viciously at school and I was guilty of bullying, too. We picked on each other because of our looks, our families, our clothes, and our income. We said mean things, wrote mean things, and passed on mean information — which was mostly untrue. Why? I can only guess. The thing is, we all grew up. The kids I went to school with have all lead full lives. With the perspective that only comes with age and experience, we have faced some of the kids we bullied. We can see now who they really are and they too can get to know us. With mature understanding comes respect and I confess, misgiving. As kids, we spoiled so many chances to connect with and enjoy one another. Because we were too young, too naïve, and too selfish to see past our own need for acceptance, we lost the chance to enjoy the friendship of some truly wonderful people!

    Well now, just maybe if you hadn’t hit him in the head with your eraser, you could have avoided the whole thing.

    A lot of time the kids that were picked on were the ones that didn’t quite fit in. Kids (and adults) can be like vultures and go after those they see as different. What is interesting is that some of those kids that were different use that to become people of interest. Think artist, etc.

    That is a very intelligent statement. I’m from the West Coast and because of that I was picked on and nearly lost my life to bulling(New England has some very good hospitals.) But my Mother (thanks to the help of a Senator, sued the School and won!

    Calvin’s attitude was different. He can forsee better than Michael. About Moe the bully: “Years from now, when he is in jail, and I am successful and happy, I hope I am still immature enough to gloat.”
