Sad days

Last night's news from Dallas was pretty horrific.A lot has been said and written about it. I don't even want to look at social media today. But I think this New York Times editorial was pretty thoughtful. The plague of violence is having a field day lately. I'm reminded of what Camus said about the  other kind of plague in his novel of the same name:

"All I maintain is that on this earth there are pestilences and there are victims, and it’s up to us, so far as possible, not to join forces with the pestilences."
