I have to add the following item of questionable taste. If you are a long-time reader of this journal, you know that I have mentioned various unfortunate juxtapositions of headlines on AOL news. There was another one today. CC emailed the text to me, but I don’t have a screen capture of it. The preceding item about marijuana was paired with an article about the recent shootings of the Amish children in Pennsylvania. The result read like this:
“Girl’s heroics are revealed. Tried to help Amish classmates. She told killer, ‘Shoot me first.’ – New benefit of marijuana?”
Too soon for trying to mine humor from such a tragedy? Yeah, probably. If so, I say blame AOL!
