Sometimes newspapers just amaze me with their insensitivity. Especially when a reporter tries to be clever and ends up being dumber than dumbest.

Here's the first para of an article on Indian Express reporting the attack. I am horrified!

"First, the good news (Is this the way to start a news copy on an attack of this magnitude? And what in heavens is the good news?). New Delhi’s December 13 was no New York’s September 11 (Luckily, Thankfully, perhaps. Good News, NO!). Only (ONLY????!!!!) seven innocent people—six security personnel and a gardener—lost their lives, all the five terrorists were killed less than forty minutes of their firing the first shot."
