NQC 07: Open Thread
A sad beginning to NQC week with news of Trenton Wood’s death. The SN’s coverage is here. The obituary from the local paper is here. The sogospelnews’s very short item is noteworthy mainly for its jarring reference to suicide. I’ve always thought suicide when used in news reports is a fairly technical term referring to an official cause of death as established by a coroner or other authority … seems awfully soon for that information to be officially public. Maybe it is, I don’t know (hard to tell from the brief report). But am I the only one who thought the reference to suicide, coupled with slightly overheated headline – “tragically dies” – felt rather … I don’t … sensationalistic? No matter, may he rest in peace.
As for NQC, consider this your place to report in on the scene from Louisville.Email this Post
