I had heard the label around the block, but never gave it too much thought; a Basic Bitch was just one of those silly slang monikers trending these days — like ‘Flapper’ did in the ‘20s, or ‘Valley Girl’ in the ‘80s (thank you Google).

But I write you as an American who wants to hold his head high, but who can only look down in shame when he walks out of history class. I know nothing about killing. But if you want to be rid of me, have some dignity about it. Don’t send a drone after me. Have dignity enough to look your victim in his eyes.
