Words of the Day

"How amazing, he thought, that society usually holds itself together—cars stay in their lanes, stoplights are obeyed, the rules are almost always followed. Rarely do people act so rashly, rarely does someone make an effort to plow into school children or deliberately drop their keys down a sewage drain. Yet throughout his adult life such troubling notions unsettled and entertained him—and, inexplicably, titillated him: he had imagined veering his vehicle into other cars or swerving toward oblivious pedestrians on the sidewalk, perhaps killing himself in the process."
