Jim Bishop told this to me when we worked together at the Journal-American. The Daily Mirror was on East Forty-Fifth. Bishop was doing rewrite on the night shift. The elevator opened right in the city room. This young fellow walks off the elevator. He has a gun in his hand, blood all over his shirt. The first desk he comes to is Jim Hurley’s. Hurley was the hunting-and-fishing editor. The guy says to him, “I came home and found my wife in bed with another guy. So I shot her. I want to turn myself in.” And Hurley says, “This is outdoor sports. Indoor sports is over there.”
Yes, we have rung the bad taste bell, big time. Domestic violence is a real and enduring problem that we take very seriously. At the same time, this is such an incredible story that we couldn’t help ourselves.
