the ¿New? normal

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« The primary authoritative law-enforcement voice of the Bakersfield mass shooting said, “the new normal” promptly. Dear kind readers: Pause for a moment and think of what this means to the thousands of people who had yet to account for their friends and family. “The new normal” is something said between friends, or said by authoritative people and leaked, but at a press conference in an official capacity is a departure from the past. Sincerely, Tom Doody. Names were not released next of kin had not been notified, and it was declared the new normal. I’ve probably said similar things promptly after mass shootings, and now the sheriff’s moment gives permission to everyone to declare a state of normal in the hours following a mass shooting. The sheriff is correct except it’s not really new, mass shootings are just plain normal. »» about me 302-990-2346 contact us
