    Because bringing levity to a situation of tragic circumstances is a vital element of the human condition.

    So new rule, NBA: Unless you have a root canal at halftime, SHUT UP AND PLAY!

      yeah.... or we can show some remorse and show some respect to the people that died/were hurt.

        As sad as it is, people die. If you spent your whole life acknowledging this, you wouldn't have a life.

            Its not so much a lack of empathy as it is a sense of detachment. Yes this incident is tragic and yes its a shame that people died, but as stated before death is a mere fact of life. I mean you're up in arms about this incident with so far only 7 people have died, but where is call for compassion or outrage over the lack of empathy on the number of soldiers that die in Iraq on a daily basis? The point is that when tragic things like this happen, most see it and are saddened for a moment but in the grand scheme of things this incident doesn't really hit home because its not effecting most on an individual basis.

              Man, real sad situation. Last count has it at 9 dead, 60 injured and 20 still missing...

              As you may or may not know I am based out of Minnesota and while I don't live in Minneapolis (far from it actually) I drive right over that bridge every time I go to the Dome to see the Twins or Vikings.

                    I gotta drive over one of the bridges in Jacksonville for the next two days as I will be going to training camp, so that'll make me a bit leery.

                      Thats terrible. I've never felt safe crossing bridges. (Like the peace bridge and Grand Island Bridge). I hate being over water like that.

                        terrible tragedy, but this coulda been a lot worse. a school bus full of children just barely made it across.

I met a girl last weekend that thought there was 55 states, and this was a girl who was in college. I know another who I was able to convince that Delaware was a European country. Not to mention that something close to 50&#37; of Americans cannot find Iraq on a map.
                          I'd be willing to bet that more people believe the Mississippi river starts in Mississippi than those who know it starts in Minnesnowta.

                            Terrible situation. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims' families.

                            I hope all of the missing people will be safe.
