We live in a strange time.
We live in a time when political division is so wide that the killing off of a terrorist leader is somehow a bad thing. When journalists can actually openly sympathize with military leaders of foreign countries who were in the business of killing off Americans. When I can write a headline containing not one, but two double negatives, but it’s okay because I’m quoting Will Smith.
There’s a scene in Men In Black where Will Smith’s character “J,” is facing down the film’s primary antagonist, a giant cockroach alien monster. The creature is out to destroy everything, as evil creatures tend to do, but J had just found a weakness in the bug’s gross, tough exterior.
