It’s All About Me!

The Miami Herald story about the official who shot himself is weird and tragic. But what a terribly self-absorbed comment from the reporter who was fired for illegally taping a phone conversation that evidently led to the guy suicide:

Unfortunately the Herald decided on the death penalty.”

I know people often say the inappropriate thing in inappropriate situations, but the death penalty?! A man’s actually dead.
