Biggest bully of my life was a dude in middle school. I won't name him here on the assumption that he's less of a jackass after thirty years.

I actually wouldn't mind sitting down with him these days and hearing his story; I assume his parents were going through a divorce at the time, or some other event that would lead him to think the only control he had over anything in his life was picking on other kids (I wasn't his only victim). That doesn't justify his behavior, of course -- but while I wouldn't mind if teenage-me had another chance to punch teenage-him in the nose, middle-aged-me doesn't have much desire to punch middle-aged-him: I figure that for better or worse, the kid who committed the offense is gone.
