20 June 2017
Despite the half-naked skiers slaloming above the fold, the front page positively reeked of death today, both the literal kind---Carrie Fisher, the unfortunate soul at the mosque in London, Otto Warmbier (remember him? He was the kid who stole a poster from a North Korean hotel room while on vacation there and was sentenced to 15 years in prison for it. Last week North Korea sent him back here in a coma and he died shortly after.)---and the metaphorical variety, i.e., the death of democracy via gerrymandering. And of course the skiers represent the death of proper seasonal attire. And that last sentence might just be the death of humor, but hey, you'll live.
