Chris Brown’s felony charges

Permanent as a crevice in a stone statue

A rabbit’s dropping, dressed in cherry skin, does not become another thing, and a punk in a suit, surrounded by glamour with a talented voice, is still a punk [“Singer charged with 2 felonies,” News, March 6].

Once a man has demonstrated an inability to exercise restraint at times of emotional turpitude, a character trait is exposed as ineffable and permanent as a crevice in a statue carved in stone.

Time and treatment will serve only to obscure reality until the moment when it finds another victim.

Apologies are meaningless when nature calls another day.

But, Chris Brown is a star, and he will walk away with little more than just a slap that his oblivious devotees will relegate to their most-developed feature: impulsive, short-term memory.

— Michael White, Brush Prairie
