Ärende: What's in...  2A.
=========================
Hi, James!  Recently you wrote in a message to Ardith Hinton:

AH>  Such as... if Colin was such a nice man, why did he need
AH>  a goon squad? That's the sort of question which makes
AH>  history interesting for me... [chuckle].

JB>  See, and here I thought about the guy he was 'hitting up
JB>  for the bucks'. Victims mentality??? Likely, I'm good at
JB>  it. "Barricade the door, and pass the ammunition!" <LOL>


         Initially I thought much the same way... but when Article #1 aroused
my curiosity as to what sort of person Colin Campbell really was, I consulted a
few other sources of information about the circumstances surrounding his death.
 :-)



JB>  There is quite a history of monarchies robbing their
JB>  "loyal subjects" into the ground to fund megalomania.


         There's also quite a history of these "loyal subjects" getting fed up
& turfing them out!  One thing is fairly certain... tax collectors in general
have been unpopular since Biblical times at least.  The more I learn about this
event in particular, though, the more questions come to mind.  Until a few
years prior the Stewarts had been kings of Scotland.  They were turfed out for
reasons which
... AFAIK... had more to do with disagreement among the clans as to who the
king ought to be than with anti-royalist sentiments.  Colin Campbell was
appointed as manager of real estate confiscated from the Stewarts & it was
widely believed he planned to do a bit of "ethnic cleansing".  Either way, I
imagine many people in the district would have resented seeing their
hard-earned money going to support the new regime.  I'm inclined to sympathize
with the underdog here as well... if only because Author #1 tried so hard to
persuade me I shouldn't!  I'm suspicious of reports which are obviously biased
& prefer to draw my own conclusions.  It's not easy to find unbiased reports on
this issue... but there seems to be general agreement that Colin Campbell et
al. used some rather heavy-handed tactics.  :-/



JB>  Oh, ya... That guy. "Same waggon: Same hill?" Sure, get
JB>  back on the horse, but don't run him off the same cliff!
JB>  The horse is bound to let you go it alone at the last
JB>  moment. Maybe that's why they call it 'horse sense'. <-:

AH>  The extreme SP may not relate cause & effect in such a

JB>  "SP" = Same Person?


         In this case, I would guess so....  :-))



JB>  But he DID learn from his mistake. He turned the waggon
JB>  in the *opposite* direction the next time. Maybe they
JB>  incarcerated him to make sure he wasn't going to dampen
JB>  the steering, so he could REALLY pick up speed, and hurtle
JB>  himself into the first immovable object.


         Apparently they had his number, anyway... [chuckle].



JB>  L!!! Just getting over the cortisone shoot, and I need
JB>  *another* sitz. If anyone tries to poke you in the joint
JB>  with a needle, the right answer is "RUN!!!".


         Dallas had cortisone shots in his shoulder recently.  Seems to me that
hurt too.  Cortisone is great stuff, up to a point!  You probably don't want to
get me started regarding the kind which is used for asthma & leukemia....  :-))



JB>  Yup, after living here, anywhere else would just be
JB>  boring. Maybe I should move to Afghanistan?


         Nah.  Better the devil you know... [grin].
