Quote du jour

"How a Popular, Promising Student Was Failed by His Family, Fell Into Radical Islam and Became a Monster" -Rolling Stone Headline
To their credit, the editors label him a monster. But "failed by his family" seems to suggest his actions aren't entirely his responsibility, and "fell into radical Islam" is a strangely passive way of describing the choice to commit murder. It's not a pothole.
-Jim Geraghty
