Turns out hitting is way easier when you know what is coming.

Hardly engenders empathy, when one is so stupid.

I agree.

But I have even less sympathy for Eric Prescott Kay.

I have some for the other folks that Kay sold to, as I suspect that their lives are all about to be taking a sudden turn. OTOH, perhaps it will save their lives.

Agree with all of that.

Or when one has Trumpian levels of personal empathy. With opiod addiction, "stupidity" is usually not the issue.

Technically he aspirated his own vomit. He had oxycodine and alcohol in his system as well.

Addictive behavior is generally not something on the smart / stupid continuum. Especially when pain medication is involved.

But he has a formidable team with which to work, which may overcome the location of his noggin, at least for the regular season.
