Re: Spade Is Dead
Dear every single news reporter in Minnesota,
It’s come to my attention for the 20th year in a row that some of you are falling back on the crutch that Kate Renner did in her story on the U of M kids fighting for their human right of self-defense:
U of M freshman William Preachuk believes things could have ended differently if he’d been able to pack heat
Please be advised: Not a single actual person outside the news media has used the phrase “packing heat”, at least non-ironically, in close to 70 years.
That is all.
