you are right on some points.when I read the title, I thought you meant no class for penn students as in school got cancelled.
Back on topic, this is why you don't post stuff on Facebook. Private parties are suppose to be private, not public.
Two comments that caught my eye:
"Give me a break! So it's in bad taste. So was the President's conduct with Monica Lowenski. This country is so busy being offended with one another that everyone is perpetually angry and outraged..."
"...Instead of worrying about costumes, maybe we should focus our energy and attention on things that really matter and quit acting like we are outraged so we can feel better about ourselves"
Personally, yes it is in bad taste, but seriously, this is a top news story? What about Iran dumping the dollar today in place of the Euro for their oil exports and sales?
What about Congress about to pass the Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007? Or the 12-month decline of the dollar? The Housing Market? CIA Destroying interrogation tapes? Even something as basic as our economy and the 2008 Presidential Election?
This is what we should be worrying about, not which celebrity dated who or who is offending what group of people today.
Agreed. Granted, I think part of the idea was to show how the country places so much attention and emphasis on 32 deaths in one event compared to the thousands of Americans that die everyday from natural causes to murders to accidents, but regardless of how much emphasis should be placed vs. what is placed, to make fun of someone's death disrespects the memories that some people have of the victims.We need to step back and think how would we feel if our daughter or son died in the shooting more
common sense is needed with everyone today. Now if the girl in the first pic was shot dead her family would
be screaming murder but, its ok for her to mark someone else's death. thats what i find wrong through
all of this. you want to make fun of a tragedy thats your provocative but don't think its right because
you think its funny.
