Above, a picture from HBO’s intriguing new miniseries, The Night Of. We haven’t reviewed the show yet, but we needed a picture for the top of the page, and it was either this or Roger Ailes. No one wanted to see a picture of Roger Ailes at the top of the page.

Nothing like a good old-fashioned national crisis to bring out the Twitter idiots:
We tried to reach Governor Warner for comment. Sadly, he doesn’t exist.
Foreigners weighed in with incisive comments:
It’s hard to feel sorry for the bozo pictured above, who saw nothing wrong with brandishing a rifle in public yet was shocked when Dallas police hauled him in for questioning.
