Auguste and I have a bit of a joke where I IM him every week or so and say "I thought I couldn't be surprised by the awfulness of the lunatic right wing, but this is the worst thing I've ever heard of."
And every time, I really think it's the final time and I can't be surprised again. Yet when this story of the "Carved B" mugging came out, I was really sickened by the cynicism of the left, that so many of us were immediately calling the story a hoax when, to my mind, there was a good chance that some crazy mugger had actually done this.
As usual, I was wrong and the people who thought that there is no depth to which crazy right-wingers will not stoop were right.
This time is really the last time. Never again, Auguste! Never again will I be surprised. Until next week, I guess.
