Somebody goes into their workplace and does this:

An employee allegedly killed five people when he opened fire at the MillerCoors building in Milwaukee, the company said in a statement. The suspect then took his own life with a self-inflicted gunshot, Police Chief Alfonso Morales said at a press conference.

Five people, all employees of the company, were found dead in the building, police said. No one else was injured.

The company CEO expressed "deep sadness" about the shooting.

"The most important thing is that we support and care for each other," Gavin Hattersley, the CEO said.

The suspect is a 51-year-old man from Milwaukee, according to officials.

Wow, a mass shooting at an actual brewery! You would expect the media to be all over this story like shit on a pig. After all, it slots right into one of the major debates currently dividing the nation -- namely whether to have more gun control or not. 

Usually an event like this would lead to impassioned debate at the top of the news for 4 or 5 days, with Liberal and Conservative talking heads spouting off continually. But instead . . . crickets.

WTF's going on America? Why isn't this dominating the news cycle?

The only possible explanation for this is that the American public has become so bored with beer that it finds any story connected to the vaguely bitter beverage mind-numbingly dull and boring. 

Aliens from another world could land tomorrow, but if they landed at the MillerCoors building in Milwaukee the media would be like "Meh, not another boring beer story."

One last thing -- this is not important, but here's a picture of the shooter:

Yeh, who cares? Boring!
