Almost two years ago, on June 14, 2017, former Arizona Senator Jeff Flake was standing between home plate and first base on a baseball field in Alexandria, Va., when a volley of shots rang out.

Class elections have descended upon us again, and — if they resemble those of the past — they’ll be uneventful. Candidates will post advertisements on Facebook. Their campaigns will be based upon the vague uncontroversial platitudes of class unity and free branded clothing. We’ll rejoice if even one of them campaigns in-person.
