Tragedy is tragedy--whether it's self-inflicted or caused by mass murderers.

As can be sadly expected, the death of singer Amy Winehouse was greeted by stupid/angry Twitter posts saying that her passing amounts to less than the recent double tragedies in Norway.

Here are a couple of tweets that say something entirely different:
ThePlaylist RT @feldmanadam: Sympathy for Norway does not preclude sympathy for Amy Winehouse. Nor does the latter replace the former.
embeedub (Mary Beth Williams): If you think people's sadness over a singer's death means they can't care about Norway/Japan/Somalia, the compassion deficit is yours.
