Nearly three hundred lives were lost, when a Malaysian plane was downed in eastern Ukraine. Death brings immense pain to those directly or even indirectly affected. And so, I find it highly insensitive for a national newspaper to publish an article headlined:
"Malaysia crash comes with its lighter side."
What is light about people perishing in a such a horrific manner?
And what's funny about the folly of the man, who changed flights, only to end up dead?
If one of the passengers posted a pictorial premonition on social media, saying, 'If it disappears this is what it looks like,' does it give the newspaper's writer/editor leeway to depict the 'unfortunate' irony, in a 'laughable' context?
There's no lighter side of this story because many hearts are heavy with grief.
