So, it doesn't matter what one says, any rhetoric is allowed! Then. why don't we just SHUT UP and allow the family three days to mourn - I'm sure we'll argue over a proper mourning period, too. Again, I have to field questions from genuinely puzzled laypeople about that "crazy" America. These are the people who usually are genuinely interested and impressed with American culture. NOT TODAY! So, please, let's act like our better selves and JUST SHUT AND MOURN!
