While the title of the post can certainly apply to the recent long-awaited and half century+ overdue demise of a certain Cuban dictator, it actually refers to an unexpected little tragedy out here in rural Utah tonight, where I got to sit at the side of the road in the cold for half an hour, seeing off a cat I’ve never met before*. That little critter did *not* want to go, and damn did she fight… but the two cars who hit her – including the one that hit her AS I WAS TRYING TO RESCUE HER FROM THE FRIKKEN ROAD, had other ideas.
So, yeah. Tonight has utterly sucked.
*Nobody should have to die alone in the cold and the dark.
