...but did anyone else notice this quote from the NYT article about Jared Loughner a few weeks ago?
“He would get so upset about bigger issues, like why do positive and negative magnets have to attract each other,” recalled Mr. Gutierrez, the friend who joined him in target practice in the desert. “He had the most incredible thoughts, but he could not handle them.”
Dude actually wanted to know "fuckin' magnets, how do they work?!"
As far as finding humor in terrible situations goes, this is pretty choice.
