The mass shooting in Las Vegas, which according to the police has killed 58 and wounded 515 people, took place during the last night of the Route 91 Harvest Festival. The festival featured many of country music’s current top stars, including singer Jason Aldean (during whose set, the last of the festival, shots were first fired), Eric Church, Sam Hunt and the duo Big & Rich.

Insomma, il fatto è che questa è l'epoca della carta igienica. Ti soffi il naso su di una persona, la appallottoli, la getti via, tiri la catena e lo sciacquone se la porta via, allunghi la mano per un'altra persona, ti soffi, l'appallottoli, tiri la catena. Tutti si soffiano nella giubba del vicino.
—  Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451, 1953

A un certo punto

A un certo punto dici a te stesso: “Non era destino…”. E getti la spugna.

Essere sconfitti dal Destino non è comunque una consolazione.
