When I was thinking of making a hole in the Chicago river back in 2014, or 2004, or 6 weeks ago, I KNEW I WAS LOVED. I KNEW THERE WERE HOTLINES. I KNEW PEOPLE CARED. You know what I thought? "The people who love me are idiots who'll come to realize how wrong they were." Depression LIES TO YOU. About everything, but especially about how smart it is.

A gentle suggestion for our August Journalism Elders. Pretend the roided-up MAGA-monkeys tripping on uncut #WHCD outrage today are anti-war protesters from 2003, and pretend they don't exist. I mean good God, you disappeared 65 million Hillary voters after the election. Surely you can ignore the Breitbart comments section. There are only 12 of them and four of them are the same guy.
