Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain

I know I have a relatively light take on some pretty heavy stuff in this space much of the time, but it occurs to me more often than I admit that our whole enterprise could be interpreted as reveling in the misery of others, instead of a general celebration of someone’s life, as it’s intended. This particularly dark week for celebrities is specifically tricky to handle. Even though the game aspect of this undertaking didn’t factor in, I thought it might be odd to not comment on it at all. I’d just like to join the chorus of voices saying hey, try to be nice to each other. We don’t know what awful issues people are grappling with day-to-day, and we mostly have a tendency to jump to the worst conclusions about everyone, especially nowadays on the vast awfulness that often is the internet. So maybe try to give the benefit of the doubt to folks, maybe try to keep in perspective what truly matters and what you can let slide, and then just maybe someone’s daily struggle will be a little easier. Maybe? It’s the least we can do, but maybe it could make a difference. You never know.
