The comments on the Slate article site are vicious. No pity, she should have known the dangers, too bad for her.
“Sex on the first date combined with smoking can be hazardous to your health” is the consensus IMO.
“OMG that poor woman. Prayers up.” will not be found at slate.com. But that is my sentiment at this tragic time.
Sex on the first date - liberals assume everyone is like them. Their reasoning is if one is smoking, they just had sex.
I’ve never been much of a ladies man. But in single days, I have been inside a number of dates apartments on a first or second date, but never had all these other things happen. It’s presumptuous that she must have been a slut to have a man in her apartment. How do people make these quantum leaps in reasoning????
It always infuriates me to see the heartlessness of some. We all make innocent but stupid mistakes, especially when we are young, and it is by the grace of God that we usually survive them unharmed. The guffawing over "Darwin Awards" and "hold muh beer" falls into the same category. Death and suffering are fit objects of ridicule, especially if they occur to someone who is in an unfavored race, ethnic group, or nationality, or someone occupying a low rung on the socioeconomic ladder.
I'm always reminded of this quote from Mel Brooks:
Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when you fall into an open sewer and die.
