Worse than deer

To me, looking out my window on a misty morning and seeing several deer walking quietly through my backyard is a beautiful, almost spiritual, experience. Of course, realizing that hitting one while driving could be an actual spiritual experience that I prefer to avoid, I am always on the lookout for one to pop out before my car.

However, I am even more afraid of departing this world because of drivers who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or are driving without a license or while texting, etc. It always seems strange to me that I rarely hear any great outcry about disposing of or transporting these human jerks to a place where they will pose no threat to anyone. I suppose the latter are to be forgiven because at least they won't come in our yards and eat our posies! Poor deer!
