I can mash them, crash down on them, trash their toys and carry on like a rampaging Zilla-god among defenseless children.
And yet, the only thing I have to fear is Children & Youth showing up and taking them into custody so as to increase C&Y's funding streams.
And if that happens, the ultimate defender of children the world over, none other than Jim Hayward will file suit against C&Y on behalf of "the children." There is nothing so exulted in the world of child-saving as that prince of fools--Jim Hayward.
Then again, if all that the children had to look forward to was Jim Hayward, they'd probably be jockeying for position at the ad-hoc gallows.
