From Dictionary.com: I woke up about 3 o'clock this morning and couldn't get back to sleep so I decided to go online for a while. I checked out the news site I always read first whenever I go online and I read about Steve Irwin's death. I visit 3 or 4 different message boards. After I finished reading the news of such a tragic death, at such a young age, of a man who is admired by kids all over the world, I went to the boards. I knew, before I even got there, what would be posted and who would post it. At one board, one of the biggest Bush bashers posted "Steve Irwin dead. It's about time!". Since the news was several hours old, there were quite a few threads about it, so the inevitable had to happen. "OK, OK, We KNOW! Steve Irwin is dead. Who cares?!!" It's pretty much the same everywhere. Yeah, it's a shame he died, but he was asking for it. Some people are glad he's dead. What makes people be so unkind? Does it have anything to do with ethics?
