Quick Hits 28

Sometimes I hear an utterance or catch a quick visual of something that sticks in my mind. As this sensory input rolls about in my head, several different outcomes are possible. It might be the case that after a moment of consideration, the input is deleted as uninteresting, trivial, or too much for me to deal with. However, another possible outcome is that the input keeps demanding my attention. It somehow wants me to wrestle with it and give it more than just a passing notice. In such cases, they can end up here, in my blog series called Quick Hits

If a burglar broke into your house and you caught him just starting to climb out the window with a few of your possessions, would you shoot him if you had a gun? Is a few hundred dollars worth of your stuff worth the life of a desperate man? Is shoot first ask questions later a reasonable approach?

What do you think?
