From a friend of mine on Facebook, in regards to Facebook:
Hey idiots/empathy-deficient facebook zombie-people: there is such a thing as "too soon" and just plain "garbage-person behavior". If you are currently in a safe/non-disaster-zone city making "ironic" humorous posts about New York and the other eastern seaboard cities being affected by the storm RIGHT NOW, you are a complete asshole. Period. People are dying, losing their homes, livelihoods, pets, etc. In your eternal fervor to prove that you're the quickest mean-girl in the schoolyard, you show just how low & meaningless this social networking "culture" of "friends" really is.
Ouch. And I agree completely.
