Color me flabbergasted. George Zimmerman, a man who’s been brutalized by the media, the justice system and his own post-acquittal misjudgments seems to have done a remarkable thing. Rather than demand to see life’s manager or hire engineers to develop a combustible lemon to burn down the house that is his life, he’s taken to the solace of art . . .
As a guy who likes to write and has endured a certain amount of grief (mostly self-imposed) I can appreciate a guy who does something positive despite the heaping pile of rotting lemons that have been handed to him.
Moreover, the painting sold on Ebay for over $100,000.00. With 96 bids, that means a lot of people out there were willing to lay out some serious scrilla for a painting that could probably be had for about ten bucks on sale at Hobby Lobby. While I’m sure the notoriety of the painter had something to do with it, I have to think that a good portion of that figure was a citizen extending some love to a benighted man.
That makes me feel pretty damn good about the people of the gun.
