Today's Feature Comment is written in response to Jim Harrison's editorial, "Roll up the rim, but sharing is a bad idea."
What an insensitive article. "Stupid" is the truck driver who tried to go around the flashing railway barricade and got hit, not someone that is excited that something good happened to them.
The "height of insignificance?" Since when is Facebook for important world issues? It is for the every day moments in everyday people's lives. The stuff I post surely is not significant to most of the world, but it is to me and the people I know.
I was quite excited when roll-up started actually, and posted a photo of my very first cup this year. It was a dud, so lucky me. To say that this woman deserved to have her prize stolen is just ignorant. Why would she deserve that? Just because she innocently shared a bit of her good news with her "friends?"
She deserved that about as much as the old ladies deserve to get mugged leaving the ATMs. I would hope that she has revamped her friend list a bit, hard lesson learned, but deserved??? No. And if you are so well off that winning $100 is not a big deal, lucky you. Please keep your judgments to yourself.
