95. agreed, i do find the sick behavior to be the ridicule of a loss
Edited on Tue Aug-23-05 08:27 AM by SheepyMcSheepster
sure man-on-dog santorum is a loony, but i believe this situation deserves a little more leniency when it comes to cracking jokes. there is enough screwed up about santorum to poke fun at without resorting to "bashing" his family's loss and grieving process.

of course i recognize that all this exists on a message board so people are free to say whatever they want without really revealing their motivations. it would seem some post just to make "us" look bad which inturn requires that someone else posts to acknowledge how bad it makes "us" look.

i'm just saying i find it in poor taste to point and laugh at the situation.
