Robert Paul Reyes attended Alameda Community College in California. He was born and raised in the liberal San Francisco Bay Area, but now I write a newspaper column, from a liberal perspective, for a small town in the Bible Belt. Robert also contributes to several online publications including,, AmericanChronicle.Com, MensNewsDaily.Com and BleacherReport.Com. The tag line for one of his blogs is “Politics, Pop Culture and Pointless Pontificating” — that sums up my writing interests.

“A Houston-area man has been accused of grabbing an 11-year-old boy and biting him on the face.

Records show 70-year-old Abdus Sattar of Spring has been charged with injury to a child in the July 14 incident.

Authorities say the boy told investigators he was riding his go-kart when a man flagged him down. A criminal complaint says the man grabbed the boy, kissed him and bit his cheeks.” NBC DFW

An All American scene: A kid riding his go-kart without a care in the world, his only objective to have fun.

If more children were riding a go-kart instead of sexting on a smartphone or looking at porn on a computer, our country would not be in such a mess.

But then reality intruded in the idyllic scene and a 70-year-old zombie flagged the kid down and bit him on the face.

All 70-plus men walk like zombies, so there’s a slight chance this old goat could have been your run-of-the-mill old perv.

But the lesson is clear: Kids, if an old fart tries to flag you down when you are riding your bike or go-kart, run over the old fart.
