It’s summertime and constant writings about bombs, bullets, and battles are getting us down. So, in an effort to add some lightness and variety, we are instituting a segment called Would Someone Please Explain This To Me, or, more directly, What the #%$ is Going On Here? Readers are asked to submit any questions they like to our contributors (in the “Comments” section please). All we ask is that the questions be at least tangentially related to political violence. We promise to post the question we have chosen as well as our answers the following Wednesday.
So, what do you want to know?
