True, many, many people contribute more to society, but we also don't know who they are a vast majority of the time. People are more likely to be like "Whoa Brittany Murphy died, wasn't she in 8 Mile? I just watched that last week! Creepy" than they are, say, "Whoa Victor McGarnagle died, didn't he slightly improve irrigation efficiency? I just...ate corn. Weird."


Victor McGarnagle died!?!?

Haha I knew that was going to be the response the moment I was writing it, the only mystery was who the author would be.
You are not smarter than your favorite team's upper management, so stop trying to be.

Ummm.....who's Brittany Murphy?


In addition to 8 Mile and Clueless, apparently she's the voice of Luanne on King of the Hill. Now this stings a little.



Ok, well then I don't feel bad for not having heard of her. I've never watched any of those.


Sin City?



I've seen it. Couldn't tell you which character she played (I'm assuming the main one).

So, are you posting to let everyone know you don't care, or do you have a problem with the people that do care?

Just an odd response in a thread about a celebrity death from someone who doesn't think that person should get the publicity.

I'm not saying I care or I don't care. I just think it's odd that these deaths get blown up and played out in a manner that engages the mass to care about that person. An overwhelming majority do not know these people, no different than someone random dieing, yet they aren't getting any publicity.

I never said that Brittany Murphy as a PERSON should get the publicity. That's what i'm getting at, we don't know the person, yet we are presented the death as we should.
Although, if you are going to announce deaths in the news, i'd like to see other people get put in there that contribute a little more to society than entertain people.

I agree.

However, I think the public gets what it wants. News outlets talk about these things because for some reason people watch it.
