Sunday; you were walking through our Soccer game on the commons wearing the kind of clothes and walking with the kind of swagger that said "don't F### with me" loud and clear. One of the players was chasing a ball and nearly barelled over the 8-year old walking with you. "Hey buddy!, that's my daughter." You yelled, and it looked like things might get ugly. "Do you speak English Boy!? " you continued, "Yeah." came the response, and you both squared off. "Take it easy around the children." you said, and since he was half your size, I'm sure you meant it.

Nothing to bitch about, but I just thought for once this column could be used to highlight something positive, like maturity and restraint.

Can we please read about something Good?
