Smoking kills, in many different ways. If this article saves just one more life, it is well worth it.

The tough ones are those who are ill and on oxygen who just have to smoke and blow themselves and their homes up.

Luckily no one else was killed or injured.

Public information is just that and I do not feel sorry for the family or friends if they read this article and now feel hurt. The article did not mention if the man had been drinking or had drugs in his system and I think they should be happy about that.

It's sad that you did not consider the feelings of family and friends when this public information was released.

I have a question for Ms Deb Gau, how important was it that this article be written? Are you not sensitive to the people in your community that have lost a loved one? You included information that the family didn't know and asked not to know but your article painted a graphic picture for them. The contents of your article did nothing to give comfort or can in any way bring back this young man ALL it did was make a grieving family/community suffer more. Yes it is public information but if anyone was THAT curious they could have searched it out but now, because of you, EVERYONE knows the details. Even the ones that DIDN'T want to know. I hope that if you ever lose a loved one, and I hope you never suffer that pain, that everyone is sensitive to your hurt and privacy. Shame on you...
