Everyone around here this morning is talking about the same thing: yesterday’s mind-blowing, horrific, three-car accident on the Taconic that took eight lives, including of four children.

Everyone is stunned by the details, how a woman got on the Taconic in the wrong direction and drove more than a mile — with cars passing her, honking their horns — before she plowed into another vehicle.

Based on what was just said at a police press conference, the woman may well have been ill.

Other than digesting the details, what is there to say?


We all say why?

An editor asked me a bit ago if I should talk to clergy about how something like this could happen.

I don’t know. What could they say?
