    I found this on the CNN site, The story involves discovering the body of a Purdue student, missing since Jan 13, who's body was discovered in a utility closet where he had been electricuted.

    I don't know if the following sentence/link says mnore about CNN or about our society in general.

    (Watch the missing student's parents react to news of his death [​IMG]):sick:

    No, I didn't watch the video.

    I didn't click the link either..... I really don't even know how to express my distaste for that title, and I think cnn and our society share in the dishonor.

    You're right, it's sickening.

    The things that are deemed "news-worthy" today are enough to turn my stomach.

    I don't watch the news while the younger family members are awake... there's too much junk reporting that they don't need to see/hear about.

    Any headline, written or spoken that has a question mark at the end is your basic ipecac for the mind. "Is Oprah going to diet or explode?"
