Chapter 23. “Blood will surely come”

David Johnson University Of North Texas Press ePub



“Blood will surely come”

THE REPUTATION RINGO BROUGHT FROM TEXAS is evident in existing documents. Obviously James Earp was frightened that Ringo would find his brothers. The Epitaph echoed this. “Later in the day two parties are said to have gone in pursuit of the deputy marshal and his posse, threatening vengeance for an act in which the above official was concerned some time since. What the result will be can only be surmised.” The paper attacked Behan’s office for releasing Ringo without an approved bond. “The facts are stubborn and plain, but no more than is the duty of every good citizen to do their utmost to see that the full intent of the proclamation is carried out and that the orders of the court are sustained.”1

The first party was John Ringo. This lone man inspired such concern that the Epitaph called upon residents to protect Earp and his posse. The second party was John Henry Jackson’s posse which was pursuing Ringo. His posse headed for Charleston expecting to find both Ringo and the Earps. Instead they ran into trouble. On January 24 Jackson arrived at Charleston “and after leaving their arms at a convenient place proceeded to the Occidental hotel to get their breakfast. Upon passing the threshold they were intercepted by Isaac Clanton and another man with drawn weapons, while the barrels of other Winchesters suddenly gleamed over the adobe wall. Mr. Jackson stated his errand.”

CHAPTER SEVEN: C’est la vie: creating a French family business to serve the global information society

Karnac Books ePub

Faith Gabelnick

Life in the family does define and limit our freedom, but it also offers untapped potential for personal happiness and fulfilment.

[Minuchin & Nichols, 1993]


As the world becomes more intricately interconnected, families and business enterprises created by family members reflect the challenges and changes in this world. Understanding of family business may now entail addressing not only the internal family system identities but also the impact of national and international identities and systems on how the business is created and endures. Relatedness is thus expressed and challenged not only within the family unit, but also is enacted and worked through a network of association in the global community.

This case study is based on interviews with an entrepreneur in his mid-30s who truly lives and works in the global community. I have known this man for over a decade and have watched the evolution of the story recounted herein. However, even though the case study reflects close knowledge of the family and the business, the overall situation described also points to enduring questions about family ties and love relationships that can entangle as well as facilitate productive adult work. This story is offered with love and compassion for all families who struggle to work together in family businesses and to make a better future for themselves and for society.

CAPÍTULO II - Trabajos de Freud relacionados con el análisis de niños

Markman Reubins, Beatriz Ediciones Karnac ePub

Muchas publicaciones de Freud están relacionadas con el análisis de niños, por lo que fue una influencia temprana en el desarrollo del pensamiento psicoanalítico del niño. Fue capaz de estar en contacto con niños sintomáticos y aplicar sus teorías en ellos, ya que conocía la importancia de observar directamente al niño para corroborar lo que iba descubriendo en sus pacientes adultos.

Los siguientes trabajos representan el pensamiento de Freud sobre los niños que observó. Entre ellos se encuentra “Juanito”, el niño de cinco años, hijo de uno de sus amigos más cercanos, y otro niño que tenía alrededor de dieciocho meses, hijo de una de sus hijas:

•Actos sintomáticos y casuales, en Psicopatología de la vida cotidiana (SE 6, 1901b, pp. 191–216)

Tres ensayos sobre la teoría de la sexualidad (SE 7, 1905d, pp. 135–243)

Análisis de una fobia en un niño de cinco años, “Juanito” (SE 10, 1909b, pp. 5–149; “Pequeño Juanito”)

Reflexiones sobre la psicología de un niño en la escuela (SE 13, 1914f, p. 2241)

Oozing with Hostility


Some of the finest behavioral scientists in the world would one day conclude that Charlie Whitman was “intelligent, intense, and driven,” qualities that should result in success and satisfaction. But Charlie found frustration instead. The nice facade became harder for him to maintain; eventually he concluded that he could not master the forces working against real achievement. He took no initiative to seek meaningful help for his academic or psychological problems. He behaved inconsistently towards Kathy, although his serious loss of control was more infrequent. His bouts of depression were probably more troubling to Kathy; it would have been in her nature to try to keep Charlie happy. During the spring of 1966, she began to gently guide him towards professional counseling.

Charlie believed he suffered from some physical malady. Specifically he thought something was wrong with his head; and he also feared that he was sterile.1 Those suspicions seemed to torture his mind, but there exists no evidence of his wanting professional help. Instead, he chose to wallow in self-doubt and personal dissatisfaction. For all his talk about the need for others to achieve and get ahead and in spite of his harsh words for his brother Patrick's refusal to get help for his problems, Charlie Whitman stalled himself by his own inability to deal with self-inflicted problems. Other sources of stress would result in a complete surrender to his frustrations and anger—and in tragedy.
