As Long As Other People Die

I really did think the virus breaching the NoVa virus shield (NoVa being a metaphor, of course) would instill more of a sense of "what the hell are we doing with our lives" with some of the lesser lights of "journalism." A dumb saying people were fond of post-9/11 was "the constitution isn't a suicide pact" so, eh, hurr durr, just gotta torture some folks! It was dumb for what it was used to justify, not because the sentiment was entirely wrong. You'd think "THE PSYCHOTIC NORMS OF THE NEW YORK TIMES POLITICAL DESK SHOULD NOT BE PRESERVED AT ALL COSTS" would apply now but I guess no one loves them and they are stupid.
