That moment when you see the psychopath go rolling by.

Taking the old dog out for a walk at the business park. Just out the back door -- a shiny black Bighorn Dodge slides by, and the young man inside gives me a creepy smile.

Normally when someone smiles at me, I smile back. I like people, in general. This guy's smile was clearly sinister. Couldn't see his eyes through the sunglasses, but the twist in the smile --

Humans have major brain systems devoted to reading facial cues. My systems were screaming at me -- step back. Break contact. danger.

Handsome young man with black slightly-oiled hair, nice blue dress shirt, shiny black truck -- why were my primeval sensors yelling at me?

He rolled on by.

And on the back of the truck's bumper -- 'Trump'.

Of course. Of course.

1. No Confederate flag on the truck?

Surprising.

2. This is Sacramento. Very diverse city. The Trump sticker is a dangerous act to begin with.

Confederate flag around here would spell out 'kill me please'.

3. Wingnuts around here spend an inordinate amount of energy "judging" people

They seem "concerned" about their fellow Americans a lot.

Normal people call this "paranoia".
