I find it hard to believe "Mandela dead" was the best Manchester's UT San Diego could come up with for a man that deserves the worlds utmost respect.
Beside Patch and nixle.com alerts I also receive news alerts locally and nationally, none felt compelled to announce Mandela's death with such an air of satisfaction.
What's up with that? Or, am I being overly sensitive about the passing of a personal role model and hero of mine?
Going back through my UT San Diego "death, dead, died and killed" email alerts, I found the same disrespectful subject line for James Gandolfini - HBO's star gangster - last June...
