I’ve seen a lot of stupid people in my time, and I’ve seen a lot of regular people do stupid things. Where does this fit?
Those nice riot cops in Quebec City went through 1700 cans of tear gas last weekend–so much they had to put in an emergency replenishment order with their American supplier. Shucks, and there was me and the cat just laying around the country house, doing nothing more useful than reading and writing. Missed the whole darn thing.
