who's the ignoramus who slapped another human being?
anger management problems?

hope that the employees can press assault charges against this palo alto man, who really should know better.
completely uncalled for, i'm hoping he understands the consequences of his actions!

Like too many rats confined to a cage, the rampant population density now plaguing our communities has given rise to shorter fuses.

Yes I recall the study where a harmonious community of rats had their populations slowly increased in the closed space and the results analyzed.
As the population increased the community was less harmonious and more irritated.
As population Increased further the community was no more connected and violence prevailed.

Are we there yet ?

Maybe it's not the crowding but the number of rats?
