What a terrible idea

Fick Nell sent me this link today. In case you're too lazy to click on the link, the gist of the story is that King's Island Amusement Park is running Halloween Haunt Show and pictures leaked onto the internet depicting a skeleton of Steve McNair and his mistress.

I believe the term you're looking for is too soon. Messed up and sick could also work in this instance.

The man was unfaithful, which is pretty classless in it's own right, but McNair still has a family out there. For someone to come up with this idea and think it's funny, or OK makes me wonder how that person has a job.

That is the scariest thing. Not that someone came up with the idea, but that more than one person thought it was a good or funny idea.

If you read the whole story, you know that the display won't be up when the park opens the Halloween show, but that doesn't change the fact that they were thinking about it. It's also interesting that the park's spokesman tried telling the media the display never existed, despite pictures and video circulating on the internet.

I'm not one of those people glorifying McNair after his premature death, but there are some things that should not be done. Portraying a skeleton that is poking fun at the circumstances of his death is one of them.
