That well-known newspaper


Sometimes it is hard to tell the satirical newspaper Onion from the well-known establishment paper in New York City. This morning, the NYT is worried that -- are you ready? -- that Germanair crash will cause people to worry . . . about mental illness! About prejudice against pilots suffering from depression!

The bodies aren't even buried yet, and the editors worry about stigma. As a thought experiment, imagine how shocked -- shocked! -- the New York Times would be if Guns & Ammo published a similar "analysis" after the latest school shooting, fretting that it might lead to prejudice against gun owners.
