    Considered in the abstract the boxing ring is an altar of sorts, one of those legendary spaces where the laws of a nation are suspended: inside the ropes, during an officially regulated three-minute round, a man may be killed by his opponent's hands but he cannot be legally murdered. Boxing inhabits a sacred space predating civilization; or, to use D.H. Lawrence's phrase, before God was love. If it suggests a savage ceremony or a rite of atonement it also suggests the futility of such gestures. For what possible atonement is the fight waged if it must shortly be waged again... and again? The boxing match is the very image, the more terrifying for being so stylized, of mankind's collective aggression; its ongoing historical madness.

    I feel that he did a fine job. I also believe that the detective investigating is a tool.

    My point was that its ridiculous to investigate the old man because the burglar wasn't killed and even still managed to steal stuff. The argument of the investigator is that one should not intervene during a robbery because its dangerous. The old guy literally did what he needed to defend himself and his wife and did not use a weapon to try and recover stolen property. So, in essence, the old guy did what the police investigator recommended, making the investigation moot. Granted the old guy did go downstairs, but he was investigating a noise...which could have been anything.

    What is it about Aikido that causes people to mispell it more than any other martial art?

    It's Aikido, motherfuckers. Not Ikido. Akkido. Akido. Or anything else.

    Dumb motherfuckers.

    I saw an Aikido rank certificate hanging in a Tae Kwon Do school; it was spelled Akido. I'm going to try and get a snapshot of it next time I make visitation
