I’m thinking of starting a regular piece called “How
I Know The End Is Nigh Do I Know We’re Screwed?”. It would highlight one ridiculous story and point to others which show the absurd, shameful/shameless nature of the society we live in. It would probably look a little something like this:
A madwoman last night pushed a stranger onto subway tracks in Queens, where he was killed by a train, police and witnesses said.
It was the second such nightmare in less than a month.
The unsuspecting victim was waiting at the elevated 40th Street station of the 7 line in Sunnyside at 8 p.m.
“This lady, she just pushed the guy on the tracks. Then she ran away. I was screaming and closing my eyes,” said witness Tenzing Tegeng, 21, one of five people on the platform[…]
The assailant said nothing as she pushed the man to his doom, a law-enforcement source said, adding, “He didn’t even know she was there.”
Any thoughts? Is it a decent idea or just too much BS to keep piling on people?
