What the Killers Want
What the Killers Want: "Repeatedly this past week, news anchors have asked the 'experts' (one of whom, hilariously, this mere fiction writer is considered), 'What is to be done?' Even the barmiest answers offer the illusion of control. Get the answer right, so goes the reasoning, and we will never see headlines of this sort again. Yet leaving aside the seemingly intractable business of gun availability in America, the grim truth is that there is nothing to be done. A discrete subsection of the human race is insane."
