Don’t spend your money where? In Georgia

I’ve noticed that when someone’s anger is too fierce to articulate without burning the ears of a listener or the eyes of a reader, sarcasm can be used as an effective fireplace screen.

Yesterday’s New York Times editorial about Georgia’s spanking new gun laws (basically, you can carry guns anywhere at all…except in the Capitol because the legislators who enacted the law are bent on making sure they are protected from the dangers they have unleashed) is an exquisite example of such sarcasm. And maybe when the anger is extraordinarily furious, the sarcasm becomes extraordinarily subtle:

In Georgia, Carry a Gun, Just Not in the Capitol –

My only comment about this comment, and about these new gun laws, is: we are watching a state descend into clinical psychosis.
