There’s a lot of bad news around at the moment: Terrorist attacks, conflict, political upheaval, state capture etc. It’s all rather unpretty and wholly depressing.
Oh, and death. There’s always death.
Look, we’re all going to shuffle off this mortal coil at some point, so if you’re going to go in the midst of such dark times, why not go in a way that at least generates an interesting headline:
Indeed. Tragic tale.
Thus, if you come across a Sky News story headed:
Underrated Cape Town blogger dies after mysterious late night beagle incident
in the near (or distant) future, then you’ll know where not to come anymore.
