Bad People Did It

A student is making a presentation on the 3/11/2004 terrorist attacks in Spain.

“This is all I have to say,” he ends the talk abruptly.

“So who organized these attacks?” another student asks.

“Bad people,” the presenter explains authoritatively.

“And who were these bad people?” I ask, trying to help him out.

“Well, they were just bad, mean people.”

Once again, the story of the bad guys who killed the good guys overtakes our course.
