Guns and Roses

Published April 17, 2017 by Nan Mykel

Shannon took videos of the International Street Fair yesterday, in Athens, Ohio, for Public Access Television. I was asleep when she got back and she didn’t wake me, so I don’t know how it went. I saw in the paper today, however, that at the happy international festivities 5 out-of-towners visited the fair bearing unconcealed weapons and smiles.  A city policeman was on their heels the entire time.  The visitors  seemed to think that it was an act of overt goodwill and an opportunity for discussion, but I declare I wonder about their judgment.  I seriously wonder if men would be so attached to their guns if they were not phallic symbols? Maybe the entire hoo-haw relates back to castration anxiety?

 P.S. For some spooky reason, Word Press was slow to accept “guns” as a category.  (Maybe not so spooky, now that I think about it).
