Goes to show ya how much trouble is behind the door when one starts comparing tragedies.
Thumbs-Up on a Straight-Up Real Deal post.
What Sanduskey did and how people covered it up is horrible.
But it directly affects a limited amount of people.
Imagine if Bush II had been given the same coverage when the truth about lying to Congress was unveiled. That had huge ramifications (ballooning debt from a war we don't want to pay for, wholesale changes in local, state and federal programs) and did not get the same level of attention or outrage. No fucking student riots over that
