I normally try to adopt a back-away-slowly reaction to Andrew Sullivan - I'm not a trained psychological professional, but frankly that man's a crazy as a outhouse rat these days - but R.S. McCain, in the process of idly smacking around Sullivan for the latest exercise in conspiracy thinking (honestly, if the Weekly World News won't go with it*, why is the Atlantic doing so?), notes something:
The "how was your day" question is kind of weird for a blogger to explain...
Ain't that the truth. I suspect that my wife approaches that question the same way that a bomb squad approaches a suspicious package. Alas, I always ask her how her day went, so she's stuck.
*Yes, that is a slur on the Weekly World News. I apologize for it.
