On Death

It's spiteful, nasty and quite shortsighted to ever celebrate the lonely flickering out of a human being.  Anyone 'of the left' who celebrates a human death demonstrates a lack of compassion that makes a mockery of their politics.

Then again, roughly 150,000 people die every day.  Why do we give a shit about this single death in 150,000 or so?  Fuck her.  Mourn someone who deserves it.  Don't cheer, that's sick.  But anyone mourning her passing this evening is either a fool or an arsehole.  Death is always sad but some deaths are less so.  Tonight I am entirely unmoved.
