UPDATE : What would a story about 2 idiot DJs be without a moronic musician throwing in his two cents for the stupid hat trick? http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/gossip/morrissey-kate-middleton-blame-nurse-death-article-1.1218615?localLinksEnabled=false
Last week we heard news reports about the alleged suicide of British nurse, Jacintha Saldanha, who transferred a call from a couple of idiot DJs (I know-redundant) inquiring about the condition of the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. From the New York Daily News:
Saldanha was found dead three days after taking a phone call at London’s King Edward VII Hospital from radio deejays Mel Greig and Michael Christian. The morning radio hosts in Sydney, Australia, impersonated Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles to try to pry out information on the health of Prince William’s pregnant wife.
Seriously? A married mother of two transfers a call to another nurse, and that causes so much embarrassment and humiliation that she kills herself? I’m sorry, but that doesn’t pass the smell test or the laugh test.
Was she experiencing extreme stress from working in a government-run hospital, with its “end of life” paths and rationing of care, so much so that this incident was the last straw? Didn’t she understand that that’s just how wacky DJs are? Didn’t she listen to this super cool interview that our glorious, grand exalted Dear Reader did with Kiki, Carlos and Danny and understand that these people are just jokers having fun?
I’m sure we’ll soon learn the rest of the story. Depression, history of mental illness, adultery by one or the other, substance abuse are all possibilities, although I have no information that any of those were involved. I’m not buying the “official story,” though. What do you think really happened here?
