the special gift

Do you really people that people are impartial one hundred percent of the time?  I do not.  They may claim they are but deep down underneath there are always prejudices lurking. For example, in an old “Brady Bunch” show, Greg was on the first string of the football team. At the very first game he was injured and cracked a few ribs. Carol was livid.  He was just going to quit the team when his girlfriend asked him to attend the game and take pictures of her.  At first he was reluctant as he felt like a failure.  However, she convinced him and while he was there he took a number of pictures including the game.  When he developed them he showed his dad that the umpire had made a bad call.  This led to him becoming the official photographer of the team.  It was probably the beginning of instant replay.  It has to be difficult for umpires to be impartial. They may have disagreements with various players, which would make it difficult to make the correct call.  Even in court trials, the jurors try to be impartial but the attorneys for both sides present their cases and often making the right decision is arduous.  In the Good Gus series, Sheriff Gus did have a challenging  time being impartial with Bad Bart.  It is understandable because basically he was a character having a temper tantrum. The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones. Hard copies, personally autographed, are available through our website along with past blogs for your reading enjoyment. Digitizing for all the books will be ready next week! Please consider adding “The Special Gift” as a new Christmas tradition.
