Doesn’t mean his family and friends have to have his irresponsibility showed into their face by some irrelevant old man, but i bet you didn't even know Ryan Dunn existed until he died, as for the passenger, what exactly makes him a fu*ktard, is it the same thing that makes you one? I don’t get it. The fact that you could be so opinionated about something you know absolutely nothing about is almost as baffling  as the fact that 6 people pushed the ‘like’ button after they read your post.

I like Ebert. But I think even he, who makes such great use of technology, forgets just how powerful social media is.
