    When you’re down in the black hole that is depression, you don’t think logically and you don’t think your worries (or yourself) matter to anyone else. At the point of suicide, I would bet that the thought of the next day is more than the person can bear. It’s a terrible illness.

    Aw, and here I thought the 1950s were the Golden Age because I was born then….

    And “Alas, three characters,” not “there characters,” in the second paragraph. Proofreader’s day off?

    “People” prefer dogs? According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, 43,346,000 households owned 69,926,000 dogs in 2012, while 36,117,000 households owned 74,059,000 cats. More own dogs, to be sure, but hardly by an overwhelming margin. Why choose, anyway? I love ’em both.

    Well, if not Sophie, I’m betting that one’s at least female!

    Thanks to all of you beyond, at, or near your 50th for making me feel young. My 40th would have been last month. (I have no idea whether anyone held a reunion.)

    If we’re sticking with music poems, Jim Morrison (The Doors), “Horse Latitudes.”

    Sophie, aren’t you going to help Doug with that?

    Re: D.H. Lawrence’s “The Rocking Horse Winner,” another of my favorites, right up there with “The Veldt.” Both stories of extreme dysfunctional families and their consequences.

    Thanks, I hadn’t heard of that one before. I’ll have to look into it a bit more. But it definitely post-dates “The Lottery.” On the other hand, sacrificing children for their elders’ sins or to appease the gods dates so far back, in so many places, I now think direct lines don’t need to be drawn.
