The Starch Solution by John McDougall

I was only happy to hear of someone’s death once. Osama bin Laden had been killed, and I said on a public forum that I was glad he was dead. I regretted it pretty quickly afterwards.

Listen, Joan Rivers? Not Osama bin Laden. Not even in the same orbit. She was a woman who said some pretty questionable things, and I’m not saying you had to like her or respect her. But I have a real problem with celebrating the deaths of people I don’t like/agree with.

Melissa Rivers lost her father to suicide. She has now lost her mother and she’s an only child. I’m sure she’d really appreciate the “ding dong, the witch is dead” shit I’m seeing on the internet. Really. You know what matters to a kid when their parent dies? The kind words others have. My dad died a little over a year ago and I can’t imagine how I’d feel if people were calling him the names I’m hearing people call Joan.

Cooper lost his grandmom. I miss my grandmother like crazy, and I was eighteen when she died.

I choose not to answer hatred with hatred. I choose not to celebrate someone’s death. Whether you believe that the things Joan said were said in jest or not, whether you believe she was an evil bitch or just a loudmouth old lady, shut the fuck up and let the body get cold first.

I’m not asking you to mourn. Fuck, I’m not even asking you to care. Criticize, question, and disagree with people. But don’t dance on their graves. Have some respect for their loved ones; your beef isn’t with them and Joan isn’t around to hear said beef anyway.

I’m about to get all weird and stat-like, so humor me…
