Re: July Challenge Entry--A Stone's Throw Away

Excellent tale. Tragic and dark, almost Shakesperian in its power. And it really helps the reader to understand this man...and why he was this close to giving up and shooting himself on DS9.

A child seeing his father stoned before him is traumatic enough--but to have him be forced to cast the stone--

(Shudder!) Trauma doesn't begin to describe it....
"The saying implies but does not name the effective agency of its supposed utopia.... 'Needs and abilities' are, of course, subjective. So the operative statement may be reduced to 'the State shall take, the State shall give'."
