A man casually rationalizes an impending nefarious deed.

Joey read that according to the World Health Organization, approximately 150,000 people died each day around the world, over 6,000 in the United States alone, give or take. What’s one or two more, right?

Statistically, it wouldn’t move the needle one tiny bit, an unperceivable blip on the “give” side. Maybe if people would consider things in a greater context, he thought, they wouldn’t get so emotional and distraught about personal loss.

Anyway, he decided it would be two...it had to be two, no loose ends. Joey Delahunt was resolute, today would be the day.

Think globally, act locally.
