I am in the ‘happens all the time, just not newsworthy” camp. Driving is dangerous, yadda yadda. Productive people in society die everyday, as do those with bad intentions. We hear about 1% of the cases, and usually because someone was nearby with a camera, or there was some way some nobody in a newsroom could spin a story out of the incident.

Yes, I’m a cynic.

I don’t want to sound judgemental, but Matt?! I am surprised by your confusion over “good” people vs “bad” people dying. I would think that everyone being a child of God, weather saved or not is one of the “good” guys, and if their life has taken a turn for the worse, doesn’t make them any less “good”. Even those crack heads and drug dealers are someones mother, father, brother, sister, wife, husband, etc. I would think you would be a little more compassionate for all mankind.

oh and just because you have money to give to charitable organizations, doesn’t make you automatically “good”. You don’t know what goes on behind closed doors, and same goes for those less fortunate, or so called “criminals”.

I disagree. We are all bad. Total depravity.
