Harrison Bergeron lives!
So: The press has moved on from the last big news story and decided that an 18-year-old nutcase racial mass murderer is a microcosm instead of an outlier. The narrative is forever set now, and no facts (if there be countervailing facts) will change it.
I feel like one of the parents of Harrison Bergeron: What was that story they were covering last week? I can’t recall, but it was real sad, or outrageous, or something riveting.
