I know this is a bit frivolous in a column with such gravity....but a typo clarification is in order...since it is in the worst possible place. "....dance on grave of a father of four before it was even 'bug' because...."
Should be 'dug'.
Having said that...this is a fantastic article: the readers of the tripe that Hastings and his sycophantic, postmortem cheerleaders have heaped upon him are an excellent illustration of why we refer to so many of their ilk, both readers and writers...as SHEEP. No brains, no common sense, no convictions that resemble anything having to do with how the REAL WORLD actually works; Just stimulus-response....like an amoeba.
