Show a little compassion. Not every story needs to be part of a the culture war.
I find the tone to be a cause of dismay also. Whether it be the anti rich guy rhetoric or the anti affirmative action bs. Both the crews of the submersible and of the ferry were trying to better their lives and were taking risks to do it.. They both need to be applauded. Of course, the media is going to pay more attention to the wealthy and well known. That's their bias. It sells more copy too. In newspaper accounts of the original 1912 Titanic disaster the media focused on famous and well to do passengers. The more things change the more they stay t h e same.
Alas, I fear your comments will most likely fall on very deaf ears. As Rahm Emanuel loves to say about a crisis, don't ever let it go to waste. As usual, the cultural warriors are heeding his advice.
Elite people being daredevils is nothing new. Branson, Bezos, Turner, and others did it too. What I read is that Oceangate was recalcitrant to third party reviews. An unusual non-cylindrical carbon-fiber structure is problem zero - without third party review. All carbon-fiber structure failure modes are not understood nor are there early warning indicators for each. Perhaps the elite daredevils will invoke laws that prohibit ticket sales to such rides.
