In his little back-and-forth with Gail Collins, Bret Stephens had this to say:
Happy Easter, Gail. The news has been so depressing lately. A crazy guy opens fire in a subway in Brooklyn. The Russians are committing atrocities in Ukraine and are about to start a major offensive in the east. And my tuna melt on rye costs $21 at a not-much-to-look-at New York City diner, not including the tip.
We guess this was supposed to be funny, or something.
Anyway, there aren’t a lot of immediate solutions to “atrocities in Ukraine” or, in Stephens’ parlance, “crazy guy[s]” with guns, but if you don’t want to pay for a tuna melt in a diner, you can just bring lunch from home.
Bret Stephens: you’re welcome.
