Darrel Bristow-Bovey Tries to Summon Up Some Outrage for His Latest Column

Darrel Bristow-Bovey’s latest column for Random House Struik – “ murder, meat … and good old-fashioned mystery”:

I’m outraged. No, don’t try to talk me out of it, I’m jolly outraged. My rage has been outed. My out, formally unraged, no longer is. My outrage is incandescent, magnesium-flamed and only slightly dimmed by the fact that I’m not sure exactly what it is I’m outraged about. I know I need a dose of outrage, because it’s a fact universally acknowledged that you’re not allowed to write a column in South Africa at the moment without it, and I know it’s more fun to be actually outraged about something, because otherwise how will I know which people to feel morally and intellectually superior to for not being as outraged as I am? But what, though? What?
