We’ll admit we’re surprised that a publication like the New York Times bothered at all with a (non-fatal) mass shooting at a concert venue in Little Rock, Ark. As tragic as it was, it’s just not going to resonate with the “common sense gun control” crowd composing the paper’s readership.
We’re glad the Times tuned in, though, because it gave us the gift of this incredible tweet about gun violence in “downtown Arkansas.” (Editor’s note: The tweet was deleted, so here’s a screen shot.)

“Pardon me … how to I get to downtown Arkansas?”

Hmmm, just where exactly is downtown Arkansas?

Word is Vox is hard at work on a map.
Where exactly is "downtown Arkansas"? Where are your copy editors? Oh, wait…

Yeah, they all walked out the other day.
"Downtown Arkansas"? Perhaps you should rethink the plan to eliminate copy editors?
