“Death Travels West, Watch Him Go” by Mike Newirth

Here’s an extraordinary essay by Mike Newirth on the gun culture, the massacre culture, and the Market, tragically relevant today even though we published it in The Baffler way back in 2001. It’s especially alarming when you realize that we’ve forgotten all the mass-murder details that were so shocking back then—because they’ve been superseded by other, bloodier massacres.
