This is the passenger airline industry - the same people who brought you such classics as "What did the one alligator say to the other alligator after VJ592? For a low-fare carrier, the food ain't bad!" (Rim shot!) or "What did the one Air Florida pilot say to the other? We'll hit that bridge when we cross it!" (Rim shot!) or "I tried to call ValueJet reservations, but they were swamped!". The list of dark humor goes on and on and it is quite natural when dealing with sudden death (the same as the medical profession or law enforcement). It is a mechanism for coping with a stressful situation, not, and I repeat NOT
immaturity (check out MY age if you will). Just because something is touchy for you, doesn't mean you have to jump down everyone else's throat about it. My mother is dying from Alzheimer's but I still make jokes about her being able to hide her own Easter eggs or wrap her own Christmas presents. Doesn't make me insensitive, just dealing with the fact that the woman who gave birth to me doesn't know me from a stranger on the street! Grow up and deal with it! (Just MHO - I could be wrong)!

DAMN! This SUCKS! I just had to go to the next higher age bracket in my profile! :-(
