    Thats pretty messed up that yall would get a laugh out of someones death and a small misprint on the news article. How would you feel if someone you knew died and other people were making a joke about it. if thats all you have all day to get a joy out of then you need to re-examine your own life and realize how bad that really is. sorry but thats just plain shallow.
