Who needs caskets? The funeral industry may not someday.

More on Roger Ebert's passing: Legendary film critic Roger Ebert has died at the age of 70 after a lengthy battle with cancer. Ebert’s career began with the Chicago Sun-Times back in 1967,  and many assumed it would be over after a June 2006 surgery cost Ebert his jaw and voice. However, the film critic persisted, reviewing more than 200 films a year for the Sun-Times, and more than 300 during 2012. Ebert became the first film critic to win a Pulitzer Prize back in 1975, and was added to the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2005. He is survived by his wife, step-daughter, and two step-grandchildren. (Photo via Chicago Magazine)

Ryan Lanza, deceased, is the suspect in the Sandy Hook shooting. Various Lanza-centric Facebook pages are popping up left and right, mostly either condemning him or, in some cases, mourning his death. Let’s wait until all of the facts come in before we conclude anything, and let’s not rely on Facebook to get those facts.

No words can console the parents of the children murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary School or describe the pain and shock of such an unspeakable tragedy. No words can comfort the loved ones of those brutally taken from us today. All Americans share our prayers and our grief over these horrifying events.
Nancy Pelosi, in a statement released today.

Surely this New York Post cover isn’t as unapologetically appalling as the NYC subway snuff film that graced the cover eight days ago, and this won’t get the same instinctual rebuke that cover did. But what’s up at the Post? When did they become Faces of Death? Go back to sex sells — this is ugly.

The New York Post: You hear about the deaths we were unable to stop, twelve hours after they happen. Seriously, WTF guys?
