Ugh, are we there yet?

Earlier this month, I started reading the book “Dead Wake,” a story about the sinking of the Lusitania by give-’em-hell historian Erik Larson.

I’m still taking the voyage. It’s a slow and steady one, but I’m enjoying it. Apparently one of the boat’s actual passengers did not:

That’s right, our humble tie to one of the worst maritime disasters in history, was, like, totally bored in the days before a German sub decided to open fire. I’m picturing her alive today, glued to her iPhone and starting a lot of texts with the word “Ugh.”

The demeanor of 20-somethings over the course of a century apparently hasn’t changed much.

Per our archives, Ms. Conner survived the horrific attack. It likely changed her tune.
