Feel free to print any pictures and texts you want in this paper. I opened up the paper this morning and read seven letters to the editor about how inappropriate the picture of the motorcycle fatality was. I could not help from laughing at the asinine whiners who felt it was necessary to write the editor and express their disappointment.
These gripers are merely people who love to live in denial of life. They cry, “you reminded me that we all die.” Awwww … poor baby! Grow up and welcome to the real world. People die, people rot and are susceptible to disease. Get over it.
Thank you editor for printing the picture. Some people need a gruesome reminder that they are human; and yes, wear a helmet. Each letter was pathetic: poor taste, unnecessary, thoughtless, insensitive … hahaha–that’s life sweetie. If I were his family? Well, I wouldn’t be writing this, but I wouldn’t complain either. If that young man who died were I, I’d have the pictures enlarged—we can’t keep avoiding the fact of death, might as well face it.
