Why caring about personal possessions ≠ Not caring about anyone else

» SFB says: Whoa—take a step back here … give the guy some credit. Did it strike you that, beyond the fact that the reporter had a vehicle in a building which was destroyed in a terror attack, he might also be concerned about the victims of such an attack, as well as informing the public? That it’s not a binary one-or-the-other thing? That reporter has probably been working his ass off in recent days (his Twitter account speaks to this). It’s not like he stopped what he was doing to get his car immediately after the attack ended—he went days after it ended. He also did something else on the way—he gave the public a first-hand account of exactly how damaged the mall is, which I’m guessing most people didn’t have a good handle on prior to his story. (Also, FWIW. he and the fellow employees he went with brought jumper cables to help other people trying to recover their cars.) — Ernie @ SFB
