Songwriters Dennis Matkosky and Michael Sembello originally wrote the song about an actual maniac — as in, a person who murders other people for terrifyingly little reason.

I really appreciate you saying that. I’m exhausted

In case you haven’t already seen it come through your dashboard, iwriteaboutfeminism is doing a fine job of rounding up on-the-ground coverage of the events in Ferguson.

Pair this with links from the venerable shortformblog, fantastic as usual.
