From the New York Times:
Thus when the modern man is confronted by a mass murderer in a gun-free zone (the only sort of place he will frequent), he cannot defend himself or others. So he cries. Often. He cries when others die. He cries when it’s his turn to die.
Evolution has found him out. The rest of us will be better off without him. But the New York Times will have lost a subscriber.
UPDATE: Indeed, “Americans seem to be losing their martial spirit, their tendency to run toward the danger, guns in hand, rather than submit, bow their heads, and wait for the inevitable to consume them.”
Like the NYT’s wussy “Modern Man.”
