If you allow yourself to start thinking like that there's really no end to it.

Is it wrong of me not to feel bad when celebrities die in crashes from vehicles that were never made to be casual forms of transportation for the wealthy elite in the first place?

I wonder if it is wrong for me to not feel bad that a rapist, who confessed ultimately, died.

I mourn his children and the parents and children who died in the helicopter.

I find the attempts to canonize him when, as more than one Talking Head confessed that if "it happened today" he would have been justly destroyed if not in prison, most unseemly.

In the rain.

No. In fact, not feeling bad is OK.

Thank you for the validation.

Say, aren't you a bit early? You don't usually respond to threads that are younger than five years. :P
