>It never ceases to amaze me that the "ratings vultures" forget that those photos of victims they gleefully publish for all to see were the husbands, wives, sons, and daughters of real people and were real people themselves. It's all the more appalling when the photos chosen seem to be the most gruesome ones they can find.


The problem is, for these sensationalist types, the deaths of those from the Lusitania and the Titanic were "a long time ago". The average human mind cannot contemplate anything beyond living memory. Almost ninety years ago is like ancient history. So, for that kind of person, showing a photograph of someone in their casket is not morbid. It's just their way of "illustrating" the human side of a tragedy.

It's a tacky way of doing it, and thankfully some of us know how to break down the barriers of time and see these people as human, without the use of graphic visual aids.
