Wild, wild West…

…an expression used by New Orleans Saints head football coach, Sean Payton, to describe the current state of his city. He was reacting to the senseless killing of Will Smith, a defensive end for the team, who was involved in a minor car accident that quickly resulted in his being shot to death by the other party.

“I’ve heard people argue that everybody needs a gun,” Payton said in an interview with USA Today. “That’s madness. I know there are many kids who grow up in a hunting environment. I get that. But there are places, like England, where even the cops don’t have guns.”

But madness is what America is all about, it seems. We should add that Louisiana under Republican “leadership” has become a veritable cesspool in terms of nearly every socioeconomic metric.
