I couldn't resist juxtaposing the thought below with the photo--: Sheep-Wolves-Sheepdogs:
Still, the sheepdog disturbs the sheep. He is a constant reminder that there are wolves in the land. They would prefer that he didn’t tell them where to go, or give them traffic tickets, or stand at the ready in our airports in camouflage fatigues holding an M-16. The sheep would much rather have the sheepdog cash in his fangs, spray paint himself white, and go, “Baa.”
Until the wolf shows up. Then the entire flock tries desperately to hide behind one lonely sheepdog.
ee…is that Iraqi boy running to the terrible imperialist occupier for any particular reason?
Thank you for the h/t link - MR at IBA - and for the wonderful link on Sheepdogs :
