Sinkhole headline hurtful

March 5, 2013 

"Earth claims man" — Really? You couldn't come up with a more compassionate headline to draw attention to this family's loss and the grief they must be feeling at this moment?

I am constantly amazed at the callousness of the reporters, and the newspapers that who print these heart-wrenching stories. Notice I did not use the word "journalists;" it does not apply here.
