News Item I Wouldn’t Be Surprised To See

Vernon Coleman

Headline: `43 Pensioners Slain in Nursing Home Shootout’

And in the body of the story: `A mad gunman shot 43 pensioners in a nursing home yesterday. Police reported that they had not found time to investigate the slaughter because they had been occupied helping to calm a millennial who had been offended by something he had read on social media.’

You really wouldn’t be surprised, would you?

And that’s scary.
