I just found out (via NSLog) that the song ‘I don’t like mondays’ (originally from The Boomtown Rats, but with a great cover from Tori Amos) is about the real-life event of a 16-year-old girl who shot a couple of children while they were playing at the schoolyard across her house. When she was asked afterwards why she did it, here only response was “I don’t like mondays”… Small detail: this event happened in January 1979! Unfortunately, some things never change…
