Misanthropy Corner

From the March 20 Maclean's:

"Byron Perkins might have been facing 25 years in a U.S. prison for a variety of felonies, but he told his son Destin he'd make good by donating one of his kidneys to Destin after the 16-year-old's body rejected his mother's donated kidney. Perkins has a history of robbery, gun possession and home invasion, but he told several court hearings he wanted to help Destin. When jailers in Kentucky let him out for medical tests, Perkins vanished."

Sometimes you wonder if Brion Gysin was right: "Man is a bad animal."
