It's that time of year again where we see and hear all kinds of sappy feel-good stories. One of my "favorites" is the one where some goodhearted soul saves some bum's life. They take him/her in, give them food, shelter, clothes, etc and it turns out that the bum has some magical trait or something or other. There's a big happy ending as the person's life is totally turned around and the person/family who did the good deed feels all warm and fuzzy. How warm and fuzzy would the family feel if the person that was saved eventually went on to kill some innocent person at a later date? I just keep hearing how we have to take care of the bums especially during this time of year and then remembering a story from a few years ago where a hard-working husband and father was stabbed because he didn't give some bum a dollar. We only have movies made when there is a happy ending.
