Hunger & Anger

Angry Cat
John was house sitting last month for a couple. They have a cat, and the cat had a bad attitude. He was willing to pick a fight with anybody, anytime, for any reason, or even no reason at all. His people had him on a restricted diet to 'keep him from getting fat'. Faced with this hostile animal, John decided to try feeding him more food. Surprise, surprise, the hostility evaporated. Which got me to thinking. Scenes from war torn areas in Africa and Asia often seem to feature skinny people. Could there be a correlation between hunger and anger? Would feeding all these people be enough to quell the violence that seems to blanket these areas?

Would they end up obese and suffering from diabetes like Americans? Me, I am mostly calm, but it doesn't take much for me to start wishing wholesale death and destruction on every driver I encounter on the road. It's really pretty amazing that we don't have more psycho killers running around loose. I guess it's hard to concentrate on killing when you are stuffed full of pizza and french fries.
