I haven’t seen the photos posted on the blog of “The South’s Greatest Grammar-tist”. I don’t want to. I like horror movies because they’re fake in their realism. Seeing a real live murdered person is of no interest to me.
I would imagine that a lot of people are going over there, just like he wanted. I also imagine that had he posted this on a Monday rather than a Friday, it would be all over the national news. So far, it’s only made it to WREG and WBIR in Knoxville. I hope it makes it no further, and I’m glad he’s too stupid to understand news cycles.
Lots of folks have said what he did may be illegal. I don’t know if it is or not, but he at least deserves an ass whuppin from the family of the deceased for being insensitive at best, and at worst, engaging in self-promotion from a tragedy.
At this point, I just won’t say his name. I won’t link to him. I don’t even want to go to his blog. He needs to be frozen out (though I doubt that anyone on my list was ever really close to him). PNG as they say in the Foreign Service (persona non-grata).
I haven’t really read what everyone else is saying, so I may just be parroting what’s already been said, but for me, “he, who shall not be named” is not welcome in my little corner of the interwebs.
