69. I don't do twitter, so can't comment on that,
but I am willing to cut Keith some slack. This has been a bad time for him, losing both parents with in such a short time, the stress of having his father in ICU for months, watching him suffer,having to make the decision to let him go, etc.

Grief can be very debilitating, and manifests itself in a myraid of ways. Some people can't stop crying, some get angry, some slip into depression. Some even get furious at the person who died for leaving them. It's very complicated.

The way you're describing Keith's behavior on Twitter suggests to me that he is expressing his grief through anger. On the other hand, he does have a reputation for being thin skinned, so it could be that, or maybe it's a little bit of both. Whatever it is, I'm still willing to cut him some slack.
