I’m going to risk it and admit to something I’m not proud of, but the following passage in the New York Times coverage of the Goleta postal-worker slaughter made me snicker. This is ghastly…people are dead and families are grieving…but there’s something about the dry prose style of this passage that produced a slight grin: “The attack is the latest in a string of attacks by disgruntled mail workers that has given rise to the term ‘going postal‘ as an indication of frustration exploding into violence in the workplace.” I’m sorry for feeling this way, but somehow this seems like a good topic for a new Werner Herzog documentary.
