Out of the Blue

At times, the sentiment behind the R.I.P. notations that occasionally (or these days seemingly frequently) appear here has been called into question, since saying Rest In Peace (or Requiescat In Pace) about arguably (or unarguably) evil people seems an unwarranted kindness. Besides how believers will tell you that judging these things is the sole province of the almighty, some of those involved in these discussions have correctly surmised that this is not actually an endorsement of the individual in question. It's just a shorthand introduction to the news of the person's death and their obituary, as opposed to saying something like "he's dead Jim." Please know that this is never meant as an endorsement or a way of overlooking wrongdoing. I'm not sure why I chose today to explain that today, I guess it's just one of those helter skelter thoughts that popped into my mind.

R.I.P.: Charles Manson, leader of murderous cult, dead at 83.

One of the taunts in Sin multiplayer was 'rest in pieces'.
