It is no deflection, it is a comprehensive view. Either you consider this a somber environment away from the ordinary noise of the real world, where the event is treated with dignity and quiet solitude and reflection, and you follow that principal all the way through, or you stand as a remarkable hypocrite claiming free speech and freedom of the press is abhorrent, but hawking wears attached to a major tragedy is perfectly acceptable.
It says a lot about our country in that freedom only refers to the ability to sell shit and make money, even if it is done through the blood of brothers.

Irony, anyone?
