Correction: Tragedy Promotes Hilarity

Cory Lidle, pitcher for the now eliminated NY Yankees drove his small plane into a New York skyscraper yesterday, and died. A few hours later, on my drive home, I was listening to a Chicago sports radio show, preparing to hear tribute memories. What I heard were comments like, "How do you fly into a building accidentally? Well, if you saw his pitching the other night, you could see he has aiming problems, hahahahaha." I kid you not. I was absolutely flaberghasted that people like that could exist. Then, this morning at LifeTime, guys were making similar comments, "Steinbrenner's probably going to blame Lidle's optometrist, haha." "Who runs a plane into a building? What an idiot." What is going on?
