Gene Wolfe wrote a brilliant short story about a world where Disney runs everything and the underground economy runs on forged images of Mickey, etc.

As the Sopranos will tell you, even mobsters have families who will miss them when they are dead. Even if we can't feel sad for the man, we can feel sad for his family.



The biker himself might not have been in the wrong. You are correct in that, but he is a member of a club that has lucrative ties to the drug trade, regularly extorts businesses in their areas and has a history of gang warfare with other biker gangs over territory. Not every HA member does these things, but enough of them do that most police departments pay very close attention when a HA clubhouse opens in their area.



Joining a gang like this greatly increases your chances of violent death, even if undeserved. You could, in a way, say that he chose to increase that chance merely by joining.

You would think the lifestyle would get old after a while.



Could you imagine being in your 30 and 40s and 50s and your main concern was some dumb@ss gang war? I know these people pretend they are on the outer fringe of society, but give it a rest.

It's not about "lifestyle", it's about money.

Oh for christ sake, I didn't assume the biker was wrong. I just doubted that it was a completely random incedent or the it was some p!ssed off cager. Read the second article and it sure seems like it was targeted.



Lovely rant, otherwise.

On a related note ... is it true that if you pass a group of HA members on the highway you run the risk of an ass-whipping or getting killed?



That's an urban legend I've heard, but seeing as I rarely see HA on my roads, I don't know if it is actually true or not.
