Very hard to know quite where to put this. More musings tho from the ol' phart!
Some say - per schizophrenia - there are ''bad genes'' - I wonder tho whether BG's have any bad genes. I of course like most have read of BG's parents saying the inevitable - ''But he was such a gentle boy/girl''. We know that all too well. Yeah right!!
But - I do wonder sometimes and leaving aside upbringing and early environmental factors just how often the BG's have ''followed the family tradition''.
Often it can seem not - they are just punks gone off the rails - either drugs, greed, you name it. They tho would find excuse by saying they had had a raw deal - well, tough dodo - that does not excuse not knowing right from wrong.
Some families do indeed tho seem to have a pattern of crime and recidivism - so - are crooks born or are they aquired? Both I suspect.
Either way - I hope they steer well clear of the likes of us, so we do not have to put them down and face all the sequele afterwards.
Apologies - late night rambling - I am off to the marital bed soon!!
