I second your sentiment. I don't know how we got to a point where someone's misery is our glee (causing media and friends alike to joke about someone's trouble), but it's a sad state we are in.

I find myself guilty of it sometimes, and need to do a better job of reminding myself that we are all human, we all have our troubles, and I would not like it if someone were making jokes about my issues.
