If only I had the power to vaporize people...

A couple of days ago, an Angels pitcher, Nick Adenhart, was killed by a hit and run driver. Two other people in the car with him were also killed, but of course since the pitcher, being so high-profile, is the one getting all the press.

Until today when a website called TMZ printed a photo of the woman who was killed, Courtney Stewart.

This site allows people to comment on their articles, and for every 3 or 4 comments that express their sorrow at the waste of such young lives, or anger at the killer and his driving drunk and with a suspended license, there is at least 1 vile comment by someone actually expressing joy that this young woman is dead.

Of course these people don't have to use their correct names when they post - that's the anonymous safety of the internet. It's too bad, because I'd really like to track each one of them down, frogmarch them into a bathroom, and stick their head into a toilet for several minutes. (To be sure, if they're too big, I'd hire someone to do it... neverthless, no more than what they deserve. They are as big a waste of air, space and food as the loser who killed them in the first place.
