That’s the headline from an Irish newspaper reporting the murder of a mother and her four children by her husband and children’s father and I’m quietly wondering how many minds quietly accept the reporting as normal and unproblematic.
If your initial reaction carried or carries any hint of a puzzled “And?” as in “What’s the point?”, then really, you could do much worse than read this blog post and its comments.
And if you immediately see the problem, then the linked post is still highly recommended, if disturbing, reading.
