Why exactly is this news? I dont get it. There is like zero info here. Why not just wait until you have more information and then release this news? It's like there's a rush to gore in the news. "Oh look someone stuck their 6 kids in a microwave and drove it into a lake - print that shit now!". Cant we just have a default daily news article that says, "Some people died today somewhere". The article almost writes itself. And then when you actually have, oh I dont know - DETAILS - then you can talk about what happened.

    you think this country cares about details?! That's a laugh!

    if people were actually concerned about details, you'd see more people pissed off to live on the same planet as mr. bush. i know i'm sickened by the mere thought of sharing space with him.
