An American tragedy

If I ever had a religion, it no longer matters. It is in its final death throes.

“Law & Order” was supposed to live forever, so the fact that it almost did — 20 years is an eternity in network years — doesn’t mitigate the shock of NBC’s announcement last week that it had pulled the plug.

It was bad enough when Lennie died. And then Jack’s role was diminished. But this? I don’t know if I can handle it.
