As a black humor specialist, I'm betting I'm in select company to see the ironic humor in your Feb. 11 World & Nation section. Headlines surrounding your "Deadly Stampede" photo of a weeping Indian man holding his dead wife on a railway platform: "Five Dead in Cruise Ship Lifeboat Drill," "Extremists Attack Malian Troops," "103 Killed in S. Sudan Cattle Raid Clash," and the "Mississippi Twister" photo of the damaged American Red Cross vehicle alongside a destroyed Red Cross center.
Some good news, please!
Wait, there, a smiling peaceful looking picture providing a moment of relief. That was a brief moment indeed, upon realizing the happy face belonged to Christopher Dorner, the domestic terrorist who kept Los Angeles on edge after going berserk, killing four during a rampage that ended in his own death. It's another, "Forget what you think you know" experience that's getting tiresome already.
