Reasonable discourse

Tina from Brooklyn says:
thanks for posting this tribute to my friends Miriam and Leslie's bird, but your presentation was kind of obnoxious, without any sensitivity to the real loss they have suffered. Birds become very attached to humans, and vice versa, and after 40 years, this bird was like a family member to them. They were devastated.

"Join us in a heartfelt video tribute" - it was NOT heartfelt

It's obvious, from your treatment of the death of Rosencrantz, that you've never lost a beloved pet/friend. If you do, only then will you understand your insensitivity.

@Steve, of course, any editor that would sell his newspaper to the most obnoxious, greedy, unethical media baron (in case you're not sure to whom I'm referring, can it be anyone else but Rupert Murdoch?) has not a sensitive bone in his body.
