While what you say is true, you may have missed my point. I was thinking of the Greek philosopher Protagoras who proclaimed ‘Man is the measure of all things’ – meaning our opinion determines if something is good or bad, and the next guy may differ. So while earth is the best of all possible worlds (to quote another philosopher) we shouldn’t assume it is best of all possible worlds for other forms of life.
While I must agree with everyone who commented Abner’s shot was dead on… (Or at least it would have been if Sam hadn’t taken off his hat.) That was what we could see in the strip. We must believe that Abner felt a tremble in his aim, because he told us he did. Still, given the lack of aerodynamics of the dart, the downdraft Rikki mentions, and the lack of power of the air rifle it was a remarkably good shot from the palsied Abner.
Are the Vegas bookies giving odds on the number of rounds?
Isn’t he family caregiver, holding a job, and needing to use the library because they can’t afford a new computer at home?

But she can measure his pitching potential and knows he’d be a great pitcher if he just devoted another four or five hours a day to practice? Cut him some slack, CK. The quarterbacks deserved to be smacked around – Zane doesn’t deserve to be kicked.
Wake your boss up at 3:00 a.m. with any question, and the answer is, “NO!”
Or his wife. Not that he would listen to her either.
Well, if we weren’t in the Goldilocks zone we wouldn’t be here to comment. And if, for example, life had evolved on Venus they would believe themselves in the Goldilocks zone because their planet is just right for them.
A rumor started by the makers of Deep Woods Off™ to sell more products, a tactic developed by the makers of baking powder whose R&D unit consists of advertising staff thinking up new things to tell the public you can do with it.
I’m thinking of the larger cruise ships, and long passenger trains.
“Yes, with Rikki, he’s just as dangerous as ever. Will do chief."
As dangerous as ever… He’s failed his last five attempts on Tracy’s life and his last contracts on other targets – like Charlie. He couldn’t even kill himself by going over a waterfall. Abner is losing his credibility as a hitman.
