Morning News: “He was so depressed.”


It is very tempting to stick out my tongue at the good people of Omaha and jeer, “I told you so.” Especially as my blood is up about a good woman’s implication* that people who aren’t Midwesterners might not be “strong and solid and sensible.” We’re pretty strong and solid and sensible in the Northeast — even in Manhattan. Forget the gun control issue. We believe that “lost pound puppies” are an unfortunate civic responsibility. And when people get “so depressed,” we tend not pay much attention to nonsense about “target practice.”
