There is something mentally the matter with virtually anyone else who deliberately brings about the death of another human being. Ordinary people eschew killing even as they are vicariously infatuated with murderers. The more killings are multiple, senseless and bizarre, the more likely the mind-set of those accused of committing them will become an issue in the courtroom.

CHICAGO -- If a hospital wanted to advertise that it upholds sanitary standards higher than any required by the government, no one would object. A used-car dealer who decided to offer only vehicles with the best crash-test scores would be free to do so. But after a meatpacker announced plans to establish the strictest program around to protect consumers from mad cow disease, the U.S. Department of Agriculture replied: fat chance. Eating meat from animals afflicted with the illness can cause irreversible, fatal damage to the brain.

The reaction of the punditocracy to Sarah Palin's abdication as Alaska's governor broke, not surprisingly, along gender lines. The guys were flabbergasted. The women were furious. It was almost fun to watch the men fumble for words in the wake of her decision to resign. When asked what her motive might be, they admitted their cluelessness. If this was her route to the presidency, they seemed to agree, it was through the wilderness. But the women were angry. "Caribou Barbie is one nutty puppy," wrote Maureen Dowd of The New York Times in the first of two scathing columns.

One week from tonight, ABC premieres "My So-Called Life," the best and most realistic family drama series in years. Tonight, though, what we're faced with is Our So-Called TV Schedule, and there's not much.* "Mad About You."
