The St. Petersburg Times recently published an article online, announcing the death of Neil Alan Smith, who was struck by car while riding his bicycle. The car did not stop.
Included in the article was the information that Mr. Smith had worked at the Crab Shack as a dishwasher for ten years. And this elicited the following comment from a reader:
A man who is working as a dishwasher at the Crab Shack at the age of 48 is surely better off dead.
After deleting the comment from the site, the paper followed up with a story about Mr. Smith. Please read it, though preferably not while you’re at work (i.e. get out your handkerchiefs).
