So apparently, Joseph Petcka killed a cat.
He’s an actor. So? He was on Sex and the City. So? He was a prospect for professional baseball. So?
I must be missing something. Because while the act of killing a helpless cat is disturbing and probably underlies many other issues that this man and the social space in which he lives have, I still don’t understand why it is being given so much importance. There are so many other vital stories to know about and to act upon. After all, this story (and others like it) is just a sign that the world is falling apart at the seams. Instead of focusing too much on the signs, shouldn’t we delve more into the symptoms?
