Casual discussion amongst spiritual friends.

MOSCOW (AP) -- An argument in southern Russia over philosopher Immanuel Kant, the author of "Critique of Pure Reason," devolved into pure mayhem when one debater shot the other.
A police spokeswoman in Rostov-on Don, Viktoria Safarova, said two men in their 20s were discussing Kant as they stood in line to buy beer at a small store on Sunday. The discussion deteriorated into a fistfight and one participant pulled out a small nonlethal pistol and fired repeatedly.
This is the great gift that alcoholism and addiction confer on
us. The suffering of craving is raised to such a high pitch that it becomes
impossible to ignore. Many who are not addicts or alcoholics can continue
in a state of low level anxiety and dis-ease for their entire lives without ever
having a clue about its cause.
